Sorry to hear that.

At least the X3 will probably be really nice next year when it comes out. By then BMW might actually offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. :dunno:

Wow, cool! That car is a clone of mine right down to the wheel type and colors. The only apparent difference is mine is SensaTec instead of real leather.

The GLC is nice, although based on its size and price it's a competitor for the X3, not the X1.

It'll be interesting to see how the GLC stacks up against the forthcoming next-gen X3 in 2017.
