I told my wife (I got this box for her) that imagine seeing a transport trailer hurling at you... and you do NOT have more than half a second to respond; you could do squat with this $78,000 X3 'M' as it could not move before almost two whole seconds pass after depressing the gas pedal to the floor.
Since my S-Class Mercedes cars have never had any issues, I trusted Germany with every technical gadgets they manufacture... I am now hugely disappointed in BMW.
This one of the many reasons I did not buy a F25 X3 to replace my MT 08 X3. BMW continues to run the BS line that this is normal in a drive by wire car. I say Nay nay. The new 3 series with the same engine doesnt do this. Only the X3's seem to have this gremlin. Until BMW admits there is a problem, they will never solve it. Shame I had dreamed of own a BMW for as long as I could drive. When I got an 07 AT X3 all I could dream of was getting rid of it. I got the MT X3 and it was very nice, but no MT in the new F25 and I wasn't going to get burned again. Shame.
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
2008 MT X3 RIP you were a faithful sidekick and will be missed.
2007 AT X3 RIPOS
2005 GC
