X3 is worthy of the BMW name

2005 BMW X3 2.5i AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 6M)

Review

If you are looking for an SUV that is big enough to haul some serious stuff, yet corners and handles well enough to keep a smile on your face, then this is the vehicle for you. The suspension keeps the car from rolling in the corners, and the traction and stability control (both standard) keep everything firmly planted. There is a "sport" suspension package available, but I didn't get it. The 6 speed manual is the slickest I've ever driven in an SUV - it's very well matched to the in- line 6 cylinder. The engine is sweet too, with plenty of low rev torque. I've owned 7 new very nice sporty Japenese SUVs and liked them all. But after driving the BMW X3, I don't think I will ever go back.

Favorite Features

The panoramic sunroof is huge. I like that you get a lot of nice features in the base model. Also great is the fact that you can get just about anything you want seperately without having to buy a $$ package that has 3 things you don't want!

Suggested Improvements

They should offer cloth seats - must be a "BMW thing."
