I test drove Mysti/gray combo. The interior feels very small (compare to X5) and low quality (even compare to Toyota). Altought for the low quality part, people says it is because of the gray interior color, I cannot comment on this because I have not seen other color interior. But I would guess with black interior, X3 will feel even smaller.

Price, X3 3.0 base MSRP is $36,300 while X5 3.0 base MSRP is $40,800. I don't see a reason choosing X3 over X5

Why? X3 has ED. X5 does not. Pushes the price difference out a little bit more.
