    Love this car! Great CAR! The only con is the panoramic sunroof. It becomes unaligned and the back window stays stuck up. But there are videos out there you can watch on how to fix this yourself and save money.
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 2006 BMW X3 worse.
    "Cargo is about the same as the 2005 model"
    Value Ranked 2006 BMW X3 worse.
    "Cheaper than X5"

    My Beemer — This is one the best cars I have ever purchased. I've pretty much only owned European cars (after the school years) and have to say that BMW put the "FUN" back into driving again. Performance, Versatility, and looks! You couldn't ask for more and now I know why I stick with European autos.

    Pros: Performance, Versatility, Looks

    Cons: Gas Mileage

    Bmw X3 3,0d — It handles so good! I almost couldn't believe it. And the BMW diesel straight-six is not to bad either.

    Pros: Handles like a sports car-

    Cons: Not the prettiest of cars.

    Bmw X3 2.5i — I've had this car for a few years and have had very few problems with it. If you're looking for a fast ride, this car is fast but obviously not as fast as other cars for the same money. However, it has proven to be reliable mechanically and in bad weather (hill descent, awd, etc). The braking is excellent and has saved me from an accident twice. All pros and cons are below. I would definetly recommend this car to a friend.

    Pros: Great handling, braking, and acceleration for an SUV. Roomy interior and an overall smooth ride.

    Cons: Like other BMW models (i.e. 5 series) there have been some electrical issues with it, but nothing major.

    Stepping On The Pedal Is A Pleasure As I Love The Car's Grunt — Looks like SUV but ride like a sedan. Sound system is ear soothing, however insulation is a minus. Ride is harsh for city driving.

    Pros: Performance is as good as it looks. Engine rev is smooth due to straight 6 cyclinder.

    Cons: Build quality

    Performance Center Delivery Was The Nicest Thing About This X3! By M3Woody
