I really liked the BMW X3 because it was the perfect fit for a city person who somtimes goes out into the country. It is comfortable on the road, had plenty of nice features, and it drives like a BMW should.
My favorite features are the panorama sunroof and the DVD in the back for my kid.
Maybe make it a little less pricey, make the automatic a no-cost option because some of us can't drive a stick but we still want to have an affordable BMW.
