2012 BMW X3 xDrive35i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
This is my 7th BMW and I couldn't be happier.
Drives like a sports car.
Comfortable sports seats that hugs you.
It's been 300 miles and I'm still getting use to the fun.
I had the older X3 and this is night and day.
The old x3 drived like a truck and was not comfortable at all.
The 2012 model is extremely smooth with its 7 gears.
Gotta get the M package!
It makes the car look so different.
I really like the sports mode.
It not only changes the engine throttle and power but stiffens the shocks AND decreases the power stirring.
You get so much more control at highers speed and sharp turns.
Seats are very sporty and hugs you.
The technology package has the back camera and top down camera.. i was shocked to see my car from the top!! how did they do that?
The SUV has a bit understeer and would love to have a bigger trunk space.. but i guess it's the x3 not the x5.
