Thanks for the feedback so far. I will say my wife loves her RX, and prefers to get another. I am making her try the alternative.

2015 x3 2.8i vs 2.8d..worth it?

I'm about to replace my wife's 2010 Lexus Rx450h with either the 2015 version or a 2015 X3. I'm considering the 2.8i or d versions, as she really doesn't need the 3.5.

I recently had a base 2014...

I have a 2014 535d x drive, and love it. I'm averaging 35-36 mpg in my normal driving cycle, vs. 22-24 on my 2011 535i, which I turned in for this. In Europe, cruising at 110-120 mph, still got 35 on...
