2008 BMW X3 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I’ve had the auto 4 months, handling is outstanding. Acceleration and braking also outstanding. Interior fit and finish are top quality. I ordered a 6 speed manual, a big part of the fun factor – the manual transmission is smooth and easy to use, although the position of reverse, to the left and up of first, takes some getting used to. The exterior finish is perfect. Dashboard and radio controls are different than most cars, but after a few weeks, it all makes sense. While super unleaded fuel is recommended, the auto runs fine on regular. My previous car was a Honda Pilot which was a nice solid car, but the X3 brings back the excitement of driving and everything still fits.

Best Features

6 speed manual transmission - it's not the Japanese transmissions of the 80s and 90s. Xenon headlights worth the money.

Worst Features

Don't waste you money on the HD radio - it has not been perfected yet. Too much waiting for signal (30 miles outside of NYC).
