: X3 vs 328i wagon

01-14-2008, 01:51 PM
I am now entering the point where I consider my next car. I currently have a 2005 X3 (that I love) and am considering getting another one or trying out the 3 series wagon. Does anyone have any thoughts? I also am eligible for SAAB employee discount so also have to consider the 9-7X. I know I shouldn't bring SAAB into this forum but just wondering if anyone has or knows anyone who has one and has an opinion:p

Thanks for any input!

I was given a 318i wagon w/MT as a loaner and the only, and I mean only, two things I liked better about it than my X3 were the gas mileage and the handling. If my wife ever wanted my X3 to replace her current car I might consider a coupe but that would be the only 3 series I would ever consider and then only for the handling. I get passionate about the interiors - I just don't like them these days. I'd much prefer the driver oriented cockpits from recent generations.
