I have an 07 Sport MT, and I love the ride. It is firm, but I think firm is good. I have read the "bouncy" comments posted by others and have never understood it - bouncy is the last word I'd use...

+1. And that sums it up for me. Once the manual is in the mix, there's just nothing else like an X3. Let's hope BMW keeps preserves the MT option in the next model.

I agree with Superloud. If it hadn't been on my 07 CPO, I would not have ordered it. I think it's unnecessary in a car so small, and the beeps are annoying to me. Of course, as has been pointed...

I have a '07 X3si MT, and I didn't know anything about this CDT! I figured the little 1-2 jolt was my fault, even though I have 25 years of experience on manuals. Nice to know it's not all me. ...

If your wife knew about the anti-rollback-in-neutral feature on the MTs, would she be willing to consider a 6spd?

Don't worry Zoltar, it's not the engine. I have that engine in two cars including a 2007 X3 (MT), and the engine is like butter. You'll never get any hesitation from it when coupled to the MT.

I love my 07 MT Sport, too. The only thing "bad" about it is how quiet it is. I red-lined the engine in 2nd gear while passing on a narrow country road last weekend. But because the dang thing is...

Today's: a wife who not only can drive a manual transmission, but demands one. And I, not being one to deprive her of anything, happily consent.

+1. I agree. As much as I'd love a true M version of the X3, the Sport package option just doesn't qualify. It's great - I love mine - and it makes a great car even better, but that doesn't make...
