Mein Auto: 525D F10
No X3 35D?

Hi all

After 10 years of driving diesel BMWs in the UK, I'm off to live and work in the US for a few years - can't wait!

As it's the MidWest I'll be moving to, I thought a 4x4 would be handy for the 6 months of snow every year, and given my disappointment with the dynamics of the F10, I figured the X3 would be a good compromise of practicality and fun without being too much of a boat like the X5 (disclaimer: this assumption is based on the relative merits of a 320D MSport vs an F10 SE with variable dampers etc)

The XDrive 35d's 3.0-litre stright-six diesel develops 313bhp and 464lb-ft of torque, reaching 62mph in 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 149mph, delivering 46mpg. Why on earth doesn't the US Market get this option? It's amazing!

Jason
