Howdy

Hullo everyone! New to the site and thought I'd say Hi. Trying to help find my folks a certified-used 2006 X3 3.0 at the moment so thought this place would be a good resource to do some research.

thanks for the welcome!

Ok the X3 idea was rapidly scratched off when I came across this ad just today. a 2004 X5 3.0i - http://listings.boostmotorgroup.com/...=0&RowNumber=1

Transmission: Automatic
Interior Colour: Beige Dakota Leather
Exterior Colour: Beige

-Installed Options-
Panorama glass roof
Poplar Light Wood Trim
Comfort Seats
Headlamp Washers
Park Distance Control
Privacy Glass
Premium Package
Auto Dimming Mirrors
Interior Upgrade
Electric Seats with Memory

They seemed to love the overall package including the installed options and decided to grab it before it got sold After seeing the difference between the X3 and X5, it seems the latter is almost in its own league.

You might test drive both. I have a friend who bought the X3 after test driving the X5 and X3. The X3 is smaller, but has similar interior space and better acceleration. She's a "speed demon" though...

For sure the X3 3.0 wouldve been a far peppier ride having the same output with a reduced weight. But this was mainly going to be a family vehicle used by my parents, so the zip of the ride wasnt a primary criteria. Interior wise I'm sure theres not much different in size, but the whole layout and design seems to be in a league of its own with the X5
