Mein Auto: 335xi
2013 x3 or 2014 x3

I have loved my 3 series sedans and coupes, but am ready to change from my 2010 335 xDrive coupe to a x3. Should I wait till the 2014 model is released, (summer 2014?) or just go ahead and buy a 2013 model. Are the changes in the 2014 worth waiting for , Will I be happy with the new 4 engine or should I stick with the 6 which I have always driven?

The new turbocharged I-4 engines won't disappoint you. We have one in our Z4. 240hp is more than enough for an X3.

There are some standard equipment and option differences between the 28i and 35i. More comes standard on the 35i but most of the items can be added to the 28i.

Given that the '14 is not out yet, I don't think you should be making purchase decisions about it. Also the first model year of a new car typically has a lot more service problems. Have you looked at the Q5? It's typically rated highest in that segment. The 4 engines have tons of power. Keep in mind that in Europe, where you can drive faster, they have engines that are less powerful than what's even offered here. They do just fine.
