A Sports Car In SUV Clothing
By donja on
2007 BMW X3 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Got mine three years ago - Sports pkg, premium pkg, winter pkg. Sapphire black metallic with black interior, 18" all- weather tires (didn't want to have to swap summer tires every winter). Handles like a sports sedan, cargo area more than a wagon, great road visibility, excellent build quality. The sports pkg can be a rough ride, but I like it. Probably not the best family vehicle, because it feels more like a sports car. No mechanical issues, but I notice BMW has a software update regarding its AT problem that some people have experienced - I prefer driving in manual mode, to me it's the best of both worlds. Tons of fun with superb handling!
M Sport steering wheel and suspension, shifter is silky smooth, panoramic sunroof, self-leveling headlights work wonders on back roads at night.
Aux audio access should be at front console, not back behind driver's seat. Sport suspension could be a tad softer.
