We replaced my wife's 2000 528i with this beauty. I could not say enough good things about X3. If you are worried about gas mileage, or expecting soft Buick like ride then BMW is not for you. BMW is The Ultimate Driving Machine not a sofa.
Free maintenance, reliability, styling, performance, heated steering wheel, panoramic moonroof, BMW Assist, and all the rest that puts a smile on my wife's face when she's driving it.
