between 04 and 08 I would get an 06 personally, the earlier 5 speed trannys are pretty much bulletproof, you rarely hear of one failing. And unlike the E46 3 series the X3's do not seem to have the cooling system issues. (although it is still advised to replace the expansion tank/waterpump and thermostat around 100k) You should be able to find a really clean low mileage 06 X3 for 18k probably.

the taillights grow on you!
