2005 BMW X3 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Had a 325 sedan years ago which was perfect but, with family needs, I needed a bigger car (Navigator which I still have and use). But I had to get back to the BMW 3 series. The X3 seems like a perfect marriage of many worlds - its large but its compact, its fun but its safe, its fast but gets decent mileage, its a single passenger vehicle that is also for a family, its well made but not outrageously priced. The car feels like I'm glued to a track. The engine sounds are great. I love it.
Moonroof, trunk, engine sounds and smoothness, seats heat quickly
Drivers side view mirror should downward tilt when backing up like passenger side mirror, all cars should have a backup alarm standard
