    My Bmw X3 3.0d Sport — This isn't a 4x4 so dont be fooled into thinking you can go serious mud plugging in it but however if you want a big 3 series that also goes and handles like a 3 series go for an X3, its just a 3 series with luggage space ! Reasonably economical if you drive it as such and that 3.0 turbocharged diesel engine has amazing acceleration and overtaking ability, shocks a lot of people !!!

    Pros: fast, comfortable, spacious

    Cons: ride a little jittery

    Bmw X3 — Since it's considered SUV, the suspension is a bit hard. Gasoline usage is not so bad, so not hurting the pocket so much... and it's fun to drive, not too big So all in all I'm very happy with it and would definitely recommend to all my friends... although it might be a bit difficult to find a good one.

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: Need softer suspension

    Bmw X3 Se 3.0d — Finding it hard to dislike much, for a 4X4 SUV goes like a rocket! very good acceleration.Should keep it's value well. As for reliability too early to tell. Car handles very well. 6 Speed auto box good as has sports mode and triptronic. Managed to get 37 miles per gallon combined.

    Pros: Performance and handling

    Cons: Would have liked power seats.

    Truly A Sporty Activity Vehicle — Wallace gets us where we need to go without complaint. It's a perfect balance of sportiness in the dry twisties and all-wheel drive traction in the snow. It's also sold me on the BMW brand.

    Pros: Handling is incredible for a car of this type

    Cons: More power would be nice - but, so would better fuel mileage

    I Get My X From Germany — for new york, an x3 is the type of car that is needed, its not a huge tank and its not a mouse on the road but has the features of both. i love the performance and that is what attracts me to Bimmers, their enigines chasis are amazing, they know what they make.

    If You Can"t Afford An X5 Get One Of These!!!!! — The accelaration from a standing start is unbeliveable.To coin a pharse "it corners like it"s on rails"

    Pros: It looks good,handles great and is fun to drive.

    Cons: It petrol so it eats fuel like theres no tomorrow.

    Fun Car To Drive — Typical BMW with handling that reminds me of a 3 series car. The interior was great. The throttle was a bit binary so smooth takeoffs were largely impossible. The iPOD interface sucked and I would not recommend anyone purchasing that option.

    Pros: Handling, Interior

    Cons: iPOD interface, throttle control

    Well Cared For Machine — Love handling, quality, durability and beautiful interior craftsmanship. AWD makes this versatile all weather vehicle loaded with safety features to keep you safe in sow, rain at beach or mountains. BMW engines are good for 100,000's of miles, just keep her oil changes timely

    Pros: Exceptionally maintained, I am second owner

    Cons: None

    Bmw X3 — First of all, i have a 3.0 diesel with the 218 hp engine that is tuned up so i have 266 hp and 600 nm. That engine takes me from 50 kmh to 110 kmh in 5 seconds only using third gear!!! Not so many other cars can do that. I like the X3 becaus it´s an amazing car that has the performance of a sports car and still it is a very comfortable car to drive. I live upnorth in Sweden so several months of the year we have REAL winter roads with much snow and in those conditions the X-drive is a very useful item, it feels secure..

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Power

    Cons: Nothing
