Took the Plunge on X3

Thanks to everyone's help on this forum, decided to take the plunge on an '06 X3 this weekend. Xenons, m/t, along with a beautiful blue finish, grey leather heated seats and a mere 62K. Not sure where people get the 30 mpg from as I only averaged 24.5 on the return trip via freeway from the dealer. Guess that might have something to do with 80 mph though . Love the panoramic roof! Can still carry on a conversation with the passenger and hear the radio!

Enjoy it! I have a 2006 manual transmission X3 too, and I love it. It's by far the best car I've owned for my needs. Also, I absolutely love the panoramic sunroof!

The only way you are going to see 30 mpg is down hill with a tailwind! Your mileage is right on IMHO. I average about 19.1 (according to the OBC) in city and highway driving. I did get 27+ once but that was coming back from Tahoe, and that is "downhill". Enjoy your new X3.
