Just put in my order for a Mini Countryman when my X3 lease ends in June. Not going to wait for an X1 I may not like and probably won't come with a manual the way BMW is going. I like a car with some...

Heard at the Chicago Auto Show there's no hope for an X1 and manual for 2011 or beyond. Test drove a Mini Countryman yesterday, and liked everything about it except for its low clearance/seating...

Adding my two cents in case BMW NA reads the forum; I've owned X3's with manual since 2004 -- on my second -- and I'll also stop being a BMW owner if I can't renew my lease in 2012 on an X1 6-speed....

At the risk of beating a dead horse(power), I totally agree -- I'm also a Chicagoan and am on my second manual X3 (2008) which gives me confidence on our miserable roads that my former RAV4 never did.

Thanks To Everyone At PCD

Had a terrific time on Thursday the 28th picking up my new X3 -- Donnie, Jonathan, Willie and the rest of the team were all great, and it was definitely my best experience ever picking up a new car....

Thanks, Donnie (and ase2dais) -- looking forward to meeting you in person next week. I've already downloaded the suggested route from PCD to the Blue Ridge Parkway near Asheville, and I'll drive that...

Route Suggestion?

Hi -- I'll be at PCD next Thursday, and am really looking forward not only to the experience itself, but visiting the family members in the area that we never get to see (they don't head to Chicago...

The sunroof was replaced in my now-departed 2004 X3 (picking up my new 2008 via PCD this month) -- under warranty, of course, but it would make me cautious over a used X3. Suddenly stopped...

The Tiguan only comes with stick in the front wheel drive version -- you can't get a stick if you want AWD. That sucks, VW! Which is why I turned in my 2005 X3 lease on a 2008 X3 and had to go...

$45? Wow! Best I've been able to come up with so far on Friday August 28 is $79 one way CLT to GSP with National; all the rates on carrentals.com are over $100. Is there a special Hertz code you used?

One-Way Car Rentals

I'll be picking up my new X3 at the end of August -- no date scheduled as yet. From the way it looks, Chicago to GSP will cost way more than Chicago to some other nearby city. I've never rented a...

Well, the AWD version of the Tiguan only comes with automatic -- if you want a manual you can only get the front wheel drive. That's crummy, and one of the many reasons I didn't consider the Tiguan...

I had two RAV's before getting my first X3 in 2004 -- just ordered a new 2008 X3 as my lease has expired. I'm a committed manual driver, and liked the original cartoon-car RAVs as a fun-to-drive...

Titanium Silver vs. Silver Gray

Just about to place my order for my next leased X3 -- found that Jet Black got way too dirty too fast. Any difference in the two silver shades as far as low maintenance -- is the lighter or darker...

Hi From Evanston

Brand new to the forum. I've enjoyed my leased 2004 X3 MT for the past four years, and am turning it in this month to get a 2008 X3, although there's not a stick to be found in the entire Chicago...
