I originally was looking at the Mercedes ML350 but, I wanted a German made automobile. I'm very glad I chose the BMW X3. Man, is this car fun to drive. This car handles the road extremely well. Is very comfortable inside and also has plenty room. The quality of the leather interior is amazing. When sitting inside you know you are in a luxury car. Hats off to BMW - this is a top notch automobile.
My favorite feature is the leather interior with the heated seats. Comes in handy in the cold weather.
The only improvement I can suggest might be to offer iDrive as an option in the X3.
