Fifth Gear Review

Here's a video review from Fifth Gear. I wasn't aware that leather and nav were standard in the UK. Kinda pissed about that.

I wouldn't be pissed. They probably more than add it into the price.
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
2008 MT X3 RIP you were a faithful sidekick and will be missed.

Too bad that diesel/MT combo won't be offered in the U.S.

Brits pay so much for their cars, it's nothing to be jealous about. Canadians also get more standard equip but they pay more than the US as well.

But Americans are already paying the least for their cars, the Brits still have to pay more with those standard features.

Gad i would love that very car!!! 6MT and 2.0 TD

But I would like to add that I think the reviewer is unfairly critical of the E83. The British media seems always to exaggerate the pros and cons of vehicles. "awkward styling?" "Brittle interior? - what does that even mean?" "Granite tires?" -- well maybe the last one he drove was those things. But since 07 things were definitely better. Maybe he hadnt driven a recent one. If the vehicle is so darn bad, why does my E83 feel just perfect to me every time i get in?
