This is not working for everyone. I have X3 as a loaner many times and for more then one day and no one in my family liked look or ride quality.
When we saw X1 in Malibu last year
And I was very impress on X3 presentation by exterior of the car. interior it's like all latest BMW - nothing to write home about. And test drive last sunday change totally my opinion about that SUV. I still think that Audi Q5 is a beautiful car inside and out. And both engine choice is only big plus for Audi. The are plenty of users on Bimmerfest and AudiWorld who liked both cars. Time will show if X3 will be selling as quick as Audi.

It will be interesting to see how the production cars shake out in comparison to the competition.
Motortrend just got it to do 5.3 seconds, if magazine numbers mean anything.

I saw an on-line review that gave a 5.9 speed. Interestingly it was the same time as posted for the 50tt X5. Of course the same time was also shared with the Subaru Turbo Forester! The tests are starting to show up around the net, so it shouldn't be long before we get a pretty good idea of what the new X3 is actually capable of.
