I had an 04 X3 that was totaled in a side impact accident from which I walked away relatively unscathed. So, when time came to replace it, I didn't hesitate to get another. I love this SUV. It's a joy to drive to work everyday. The drawbacks are the inability to get the iPod dock or navigation system if you have the satellite radio installation. Another problem are the pirelli tires, I've had to replace three. They seem to have extremely weak sidewalls.
The acceleration on and off the highway is phenomenal. The fit and finish are great, the gauges are easy to read and intuitive.
Make it easier to install the iPod dock and navigation system and get some sturdier tires.
