So, I drove an Audi Q5 3.0 yesterday...

...and I'm impressed. Until now, I was convinced that an X3 35i was my next vehicle. Power, fit and finish, cost, reviews... it all seems to line up just a tiny bit better than the X3.

What am I...

For what it's worth, Canadian dealers are currently pushing free excessive wear and tear insurance but I'm not sure if this is the same kind of thing. They value it at $1,159 and I can't imagine...

Thanks all. Seems like a bad place for auto manufacturers to cut corners. Comfort of all passengers is a big deal and in this case, a non-negotiable deal-breaker.

2103 X3 M Sport passenger comfort?

Hey everyone,

A few weeks ago, I asked for help with deciding between a new XC60 R-Design and an X3 35i M-Sport. Well, the x3 wins but I have a question about the passenger seat.

My wife and...

Anyone have any experiences with the lighter colour leather seats? I imagine they're no different from any other manufacturer but just thought I'd ask.

Also, I checked for local performance...

Funny. I wondered the same thing about the 99 cent lumbar knob and when I watched my wife adjust the steering wheel, I thought she'd have something to say about it. Maybe she was just being polite!

Thanks, Bruce.

To clarify my point about the Volvo and BMW AWD experiences, I really didn't have a chance to push the X3 in a way that demonstrated its capabilities. When I drove the XC60...

Thanks for the advice. An extended warranty is probably worth a second look. I'm not interested in having my wallet become life support for any vehicle.

As an aside, I currently drive an '09 VW...

Hi everyone. First post to this forum.

My wife and I are seriously considering an X3 35i M Sport but I'm leaning ever so slightly toward the XC60 R-Design we drove yesterday. What are the awesome...
