With the 2006 iteration of the X3, the gray cladding is gone from the front end. A matching painted from end with repositioned fog lights has dramatically improved the aesthetics of the vehicle. Our X3 has been driven some 800 miles, and over these miles the vehicle has performed flawlessly. The quality and finish on this factory ordered X3 is first class. The handling is superb. The X-Drive works to make driving in water-filled pitted lanes far less demanding of the driver. The X3 isn't an M3 when it comes to handling, but is IMHO handily superior to the offerings by other SUV marques. Overall, the X3 is quality and value under $50k.
On board computer, tilt-down reverse mirror, Bluetooth technology, incredible sunroof, seats that fit like a glove, telescopic steering wheel, world class suspension, silky inline 6 engine.
Chrome exhaust tips should be installed at the factory.
