Congrats man, it´s nice to see a spanish mate with an X3.
No it's not. Otherwise as soon as the X3 was launched everybody would stop buying the Q5. They're both reasonably good cars, although I personally prefer the Q5. The X3 is still the weakest link in BMW's line up. When will you learn that spouting partisan rhetoric like this only serves to make people laugh at everything you say Klier?
True Apart from the X3's pricing! I had my test drive in a base X3 xDrive 20d and the interior quality / finish and perceived quality is top notch!
X3 xDrive 23d - No. My dealer has confirmed that because the X3 will be available with a 3.0 Diesel the 23d will be exclusive to the X1 - as the X1's top-of-the-range diesel AND mind you, the X3 20d comes in @ R800.00 less that the X1 23d both @ base price! So, nothing wrong with X3 pricing in RSA compared to the X1:t-cheers:
How we differ. For me my X1 xDrive23d is better value than the equivalent Q5 and the hindsight is that I think the X1 is actually a pricey ripp-off!
Seeing both the Q5 and new X3 parked with only an open parking space between them(on holiday in Umhlanga Natal's north coast), the Q5 looks as if it belongs in the X1/Tiguan/Honda CRV league and not in the X3's slot in the market.... same goes for the XC60
Betty, just put me on your ignore list again please, it was really great that way!
Don't know why you took me off in the first place, because don't expect me to adapt to what you like or want.
It's a different opinion Klier. One to balance the absolute rhetoric and blind fanboyism that you portray in just about every single post you make, which you seem to offer as fact. Which it's not. It's just your opinion. My post was that. An opinion. I'm just offering you a bit of friendly advice that maybe if you want to be taken seriously, have a bit of humility. Sadly, I don't think you're going to take any notice.
Saw the X3 in a parking lot the other day and I have to say it's a hell of alot better looking IRL. Well done BMW.
Yeah, Ive seen the car quite a few times now too, and it really is a very handsome car. Quite big compared to X1, but not so much when parked right next to the X5. Perfect size with great design elements.
I still haven't sat in one though, so no comments on interior yet.
Neither have I, but had a look inside and it's one of the best interiors out there.:t-cheers:
Went to see the new X3 today but I cant say I was impressed by its design. I prefer the design of X1. However, the interior materials was of high quality. Black plastics softer with a better touch than compare to my car and new Z4.
They also had a frozen grey metallic M3 E92 with competition package and with a huge price. Price aside, damn the car looks good in that color and wheels. Very beautiful, particulary the side profile.

X3 M-Sport Package Configurator now available at BMW UK : Car Configurator
Beautiful, best looking in class easy:
The guy who owns it says it drives better than his previous E70 X5 4.8i :t-roses:
It's got the executive pack and the premium pack, but the owner opted for the X-line delete.
"X Line. Powerful elegance: with the X Line equipment package.
More Beautifully satinated Aluminium trim finishes the window recess covers and is integrated into the fairing under the doors. Titanium-look panels on the front bumper add unique character and, on the rear bumper, harmonise with the aluminium panels visible when the tailgate is raised. The door sills are in stainless steel and feature BMW lettering."
Wow that does look good. Really needed an X3 this week in Chicago!!!
I bet. You all got like 2ft of snow right? Probably needed a Range Rover or G-class in that stuff. I'm just glad it missed DC.
OMG yes. I was here on business and got snowed in for 2 days. I have never seen this much snow here and I grew up here. I would have killed for a SUV on those days.
No X3 would have gotten you out of that snow I have one and barely made it thru side streets.
You guys need Wintertyres and not summertyres like we in Scandinavia have. Huge difference between summertyres and wintertyres.
Ir's a very pleasant surprise, the car IRL looks very elegant and engaging.
Exclusive: New BMW X3 3.0 diesel spotted on US soil – With M Sport Pack also
VERY good looking.
X1, X3 and X5 are all special in their own way. BW really has the perfect SUV line up right now. Damn.
Are there any X family pictures with all new the new cars next to eachother?? X1, new X3, FL X5 and X6?
Yes, they are!
This X3 looks even better with this sport package.
So far i haven't seen it yet.
