I have gone back and forth between BMW and Audi over the years. I actually sold a 2010 Q5 3.2 back in October for an X3 3.5i. I was at the point I was tired of the Audi and I found myself favoring...

Same experience

I realized the same thing. For some reason in preset mode, you can't get the artist and song data. I am not sure why since I was able to do that with the my 5 series. Hopefully, someone here knows...

2 weeks in with my Titanium X3 3.5i M-Sport

It's only been two weeks, but I am really enjoying the car. I am also happy that I ordered the Dynamic Handling Package. I wasn't able to find a car with it to test drive, but I ordered it based on...

I ordered a 3.5i. I was initially leaning towards the 4 cylinder, finding the performance more than adequate. I wasn't convinced the premium for 6 cylinder was worth it. On my second test drive,...

Want to replace my X3 M Sport's LS-2 - narrowed the choices

I will be picking up my X3 M-Sport in about 2 weeks and I am already thinking about changing out the 19" LS-2 runflats. I think the runflats limit the car's capabilities and enjoyment. Comments on...

I would like to replace the for a few reason. The car will be leased and it's not likely the LS-2 would make it the whole term. Given that, the thought is to change them out now, allowing me the...

So who has replaced their runflats?

I should be picking up my car in 2 weeks and my previous experience with runflats was not great. While my thoughts was to stick with the LS2s through the winter, I am now thinking about replacing...

After my first test drive between the two, I thought the 28i was more than adequate. I ultimately change my mind, though. It wasn't for the shear performance, but the added level of refinement...

Decided

After a second round of test drives, I decided on a X3 3.5i M-Sport with Dynamic Handling. For me, it's the best compromise in terms of space requirements and performance. I was initially leaning...

A bit of an update....

It's looking like it will be between the X3 and an X5d. I really like GLK, but in the end it's just a bit too small. The E350 is still a long-shot. I really like the look...

Drove the 6 cylinder today

I had a chance to drive the N20 and the 6 cylinder back to back. The 6 cylinder seems more refined and relaxed. Transmission shifts seem more subtle and acceleration is immediate. With that said,...

X3 or GLK

My lease on my 2010 Audi Q5 will be up shortly, and I have narrowed it down to 3 replacements. They are a BMW X3, Mercedes GLK and an E350. While I am bit partial to BMW as a brand, I like and have...

BMW's money factor is high. It would best to finance if the intent is to own the car

The only times it really makes sense to Lease with the possible intent on buying is when (1) you have doubts you want the car long-term and (2) the lease is being subvented, generally through a low...

Nice Post

My lease is coming up on my 535xi and I have been looking at the same vehicles. I had two 5 series in a row, and want a change as well as more cargo space. For me, the X3 is not a contender. While...

Style 123 wheels with a 535xi?

Is it fair to say Style 123 wheels will work on a 535xi since they were the sport package wheel for the 530xi? Does the offset of a rim change depending on the model, 530i versus 530xi? I realize...
