Bmw X3 3.0si — For the 2008 BMW X3 3.0si, the shocks are great, gas mileage is pretty good for an SAV. I am loving the sportiness of it! Performance is excellent, braking system is advanced and handling is good. I do not like the brake dust on the rims. Overall, it is super fun to drive!

Pros

Can't think of one.

Cons

The all door locks. transmission sticks. hard ride

35

My X3 — I don't like where the unlock doors button is. It's in the middle of the dash board. Why not on the door where the window buttons are. It's ok, it's my wife's car and she loves it, and that my friends is all that matters. Hard ride. My little girl gets car sick when she's riding in it. Transmission sticks, not smooth driving.

Pros

Power + handle

Cons

Price

X3 -3.0si - Not Bad, Not Bad At All! — Much much better than the X3-2.5, X3-3.0 and X5-3.0. Better power for its size and handling feel like a bimmer (at last!) The old engine is not sufficient for the weight - and forget about X5-3.0... way too heavy for the old 3.0 engine! If you are going for the X5 - get the bigger enginee!
