Stiff ride
By snowgoddess on


2005 BMW X3 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


It is unbelievably bumpy and you will feel every seam and pebble in the road. The handling is great, though and braking is the best I've ever experienced. Peppy and plenty of power but at an expense (91 octane fuel) The leatherette seats are just awful, ugly and uncomfortable. Cold in the winter and probably hot in the summer. Get the leather. The wood and aluminum trim provide the only other classy touches to the interior. It's a head turner around town. Black sapphire is gorgeous in the sunlight.

Best Features

The engine which just sounds and performs like nothing else. The handing, responsive and peppy like a sportscar.

Worst Features

Don't even offer the vinyl. Get rid of it, it's ghastly, and cheapens the car to the point that the interior does not even resemble a BMW. Soften the ride. A lot.
