Enjoying New BMW
By New X3 Owner on
2008 BMW X3 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Purchased in Feb. Terrific ride - very comfortable. The oversized sunroof is a real plus. Ordered Premium Package, rear side airbags, mats, heated front seats, metallic color. Nice ride: car performs beautifully. So far, shows I'm only getting 15.6 miles to gallon, although alot of street driving. No hesitation as mentioned in another post. Very powerful and sensitive brakes. This is a feature added as I read it's designed to perform right away. Very roomy although rear has hump in middle seat. The technology over just a few years ago is amazing. Had another customer in car wash actually strike up conversation about how nice the car is.
Blue tooth with upload of contacts, and callout voice dialing of any number. Oversized sunroof, Nevada leather seats, mp3 capability in cd system affords about 95 songs per cd. I pod jack with charger right next to it. Auto wipers and auto lights. Sound system with basic stereo. Driving is fun!
Even better mileage, mp3s don't recognize artist nor song title even though recognized in other stereo systems, contacts appear alpha by first name instead of last, rear latch opener on key chain is too close and opens when trying to start car, iphone integration should not be extra.
