I remember going from my 2006 X3 to the 2011 X3 I felt the same way. Brakes on the older generation felt much better. Many people had that same view on the forums when they made the switch.

My 2011 also has the strait 6... I haven't been able to get over 22 or 23 mpg on the highway. I make a 65 mile trip once a month. In comparison, my 2006 X3 always averaged 24 or 25 on the highway. ...

I got about 25k on the original LS2s and replaced them with the Bridgestones that are discussed on this forum (do a search). I'm happy with the Bridgestones and they seem to be wearing well.
