X3?

Anyone know or have any guesses on dimensions and how much the X3 is going to cost. Im guessing upper $20k lower $30k. As far as the size, I know it is smaller than the X5, but how much smaller. I was going to guess that it will be about the size of that ford excape. Does anyone have any info or guesses?

I think it'll be a little bigger than the current e46 particularly in height maybe the same size as a CRV or pilot. Pricce range: I'm speculating that it'll be in the low to mid 30k range.

It's so easy to guess that they'll be in the 59-62% range for 36 mo / 15k,.... rates.. probably in the 2's

The prices will probably be the same as the Z4 2.5 and 3.0s.

My dealer suggested that the X3 was going to be the same size as the X5. Smaller engine. Let's face it, the car can't go any smaller as it doesn't have any cargo space to begin with....

I would say mid-30's.

The X5 is huge in the back seat, and plenty big in cargo! Here is a pic of my X5 on Sunday with my new 17's (tires on the left are 275's, on the right are 235's - so they are WIDE) and room to spare. The soft suitcases had already been removed. Oh, this was with the seats back (there were two passengers in the middle seat).
