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

Bmw Rocks — I like it all, specially its Orange leather seats with dark Gray color looks amazing! It is a high performance SUV, drives like a real BMW coupe with lots of space! MPG is low, but expected for a SUV of this range, maybe even good with its performance!

Pros: Great SUV

Cons: Low MPG
