I've got to believe that these days, the competition is so fierce that every automaker has had to up their game, especially BMW and the prices they command for their products. Knowing that the N55 engine is in so many of their vehicles with the 8 speed transmission is comforting. It means there's much more at stake so naturally more research and testing would have gone into that setup. As to the rest of the X3, I've got my fingers and toes crossed. Initial quality generally is a good sign, but there are exceptions to that.
I hope it will be good for you and others. May be I will join you guys when and if they sell me a diesel.
