2005 BMW X3 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I love this vehicle. If you like the squishy soft ride of a Cadillac or Merc and like lots of interior clutter marketed as "luxury", this is NOT the vehicle for you. The X3 has a clean, elegant, uncluttered look inside and out. It is so fun to drive! It handles like a sports car but is great! in the rain & snow. Just superior as far as engineering and performance. I never thought I'd own a BMW... but I will be hard pressed to go back. It is a little pricey, but so are the American tanks cleverly disguised as SUVs. Nothing against American cars. The RX is simply for a different market. I looked at the Japanese SUVs as well and really like them too, but I fell in love with the X3.
Standard features, clean uncluttered interior, traction & control, great breaks, Steptronic gear box is outstanding and smooth, terrific double moon roof, GREAT looking! Can't say enough!
Floor mats should be same color as carpet and not contrasting.
