Am I the only one that thinks this resembles an Infiniti JX? And that is not a good thing. The old X5 looks MUCH better than this. This is too bubbly and the taillights are atrocious. It looks pretty...

535i Performance

Just had a quick question. I currently have an X3 35i on order. I test drove the X3 and I found it to be VERY fast. Very responsive and quick off the line. I did not get to get it up to 50-70 mph to...

Golf Bags

Thanks for the replies everyone.

One possibly odd question unless you love golf as much as I do! Can you fit a golf bag in the trunk sideways, or do you have to "angle" it back into the trunk? Can...

535i vs. X3

Hello,

I currently have an X3 35i on order. I am considering a 535i. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they feel the 535i still seems like a "quick" car. When I gently nudged the gas...
