I am excited to be joining the X3 ranks. I think the X3 will nicely complement my M3.

Yes we do i'm 6'4 the front seats provide plenty of support - plus they feature adjustable side bolsters (haven't used) and adjustable thigh support (routinely use) which provide plenty of comfort. The caveat is the rear seating although accommodating for tall folks like ourselves, feature a low seat height. Primarily only Junior and his Recaro car seat are in the rear with the missus at the helm. I drive it often as well - coming from a full size/fully loaded QX56 the F25 X3 fits the current bill nicely. Patiently waiting to see what the F15 X5 introduces.

F25 X3 is surprisingly fleet footed, coupled with Xdrive and decent ground clearance...not a bad ride Plus the dash pod is "vaguely" reminiscent of what you became accustomed to in the F07 albeit nowhere near as luxurious - but nice all the same..

Nice stablemate for your E92 ///M3
