Mein Auto: '06 X3
I went from a 7 series to a big Acura, loved that car but didn't feel "connected" to it, so got an Alfa GTV6. Felt REALLY connected to that one! Ultimately got my X3, and found it useful, a great driver (not as good as the Alfa of course, but the X3 is a different breed of cat) and most importantly (to me) a useful mid range hauler of "stuff". The interior of all the X3's I have driven, as loaners and test drives, just does not measure up to the luxury of the 7 series IMHO. I did like my 7, but it became an electronic nightmare so it went. The Acura was a bulletproof appliance with no "soul", and the Alfa was a maintenance problem -- but a beautiful car to drive hard. You might want to try the X5 it was closer in luxo appointments to the 7 series in my view and while not really an off road hauler it is larger than the X3 and carries a bit more cachet if anyone cares about that sort of thing.
