Driving the Best
By BMW X3 on
2005 BMW X3 2.5i AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 6M)
I have owner Mercedes M Class, and Porcshe 944 as well as first 64 Mustang...needing an SUV due to reisidng in the mountains...my wife and I drove 20 different vehicles, before selecting this one. The second to start to drive it, you are impressed with the tightness, it feels like you are driving a sports car. Plenty of pep, and over all enjoyable ride.
Being a driver that has always preferred stick versus automatic, but with recent knee problems and I am 6'4" tall, and a big guy, I selected this vehicle. I laughed at first when they mentioned the Steptronic System, shifting a car without a clutch, Ha!!I was dead wrong...the shifting is GREAT.
Larger Glove Box would be nice for all my crap. Gannot improve an already great vehicle.
