Hi F25 owners,

Glad to see so many positive comments on the board regarding the new X3. I had an 08 and now have a 2010 E83, which is serving me well. My question is, did any of you test out, or...

I had a new 2008 X3 on a 2 year lease and last Spring wound up leasing a new 2010 X3. The difference has, for me at least, been HUGE in favor of the 2010. First, my 2008 had the auto tranny problems...

Hey, congratulations. You sound excited and you should be, this is a super fun car to drive and solid as a rock. Just curious, why did you say it's a "hidden treasure?"
