Can anyone shed light on this? ....
The Road & Track [pre-release] review of the 2011 X3 listed a specified towing capacity of 5291 lbs., but the Automobile Magazine review lists a towing capacity of 4400 lbs. The X3 Owner's Manual mentions that you should not tow anything that weighs more then the X3 itself weighs (4112 lbs.for an empty 28i and 4222 lbs. for a empty 35i to 5126 lbs. for a fully loaded 35i). Towing a very large lawn tractor should present no problems.

The ultimate towing capacity will probably be limited by the hitch class and hitch capacity.
