2012 BMW X3: Excuse for Pretty Pictures

August 08, 2012


The weather has been really hot and unpleasant here this week. But it makes for great sunsets.

And now for my beat-a-dead-horse A/C review. I wish the air conditioner in the BMW X3 was stronger and quicker acting. It's been the same in most recent BMWs we've had come through here. It just doesn't blast in your face the way most Americans want it to. Well, at least the way this American wants it to. Yes, it cools off the car...eventually. But not quick enough for my hot blood. I can't stand the heat and I like instant gratification.

This is one area where our domestic automakers will always win in my book. We know how to make a strong, cold, Arctic-blast A/C.

And now more pretty pictures.
