Cool Still on the fence...Wonderful in depth review X3 35i M

If you are still on the fence about pulling the trigger, you may need to see this..try not to fast forward much, you may miss the 55 mph acute turn in sport plus

You've got to hand it to Sean. He's extremely passionate, and this is definitely the most comprehensive video review I could find as well.

I felt like maybe at times he was holding the camera while driving around (notice when he shifts with the paddles). I kind of think everyone should chip in and buy him a good GoPro kit.

Thanks for posting.

Great vid. Although I'm not sure if I enjoyed the car or views of the Rockaways more.

Great I hope my vid helped you make a smart financial decision. According to my youtube comments, I believe I helped about 12 ppl make a choice with the video.

BMW: Where is my commission? lol

I was fortunate to find and test one without taking a chance on a blind order.

Vid was a nice introduction. Sucks about the hurricane loss though.

We have similar SAV's except mine is carbon black, exact same interior and wood. I too love the engine. I have underground parking and on more than one occasion, people have turned around to see what type sports car was coming up on them only to see a SAV.

The cool part is it makes such a nice exhaust sound even though it's turbo charged. Usually turbos don't sound as good as normally aspirated cars because the exhaust gets subdued a bit through the turbos. This one even has the burble when I let off the gas.

Two comments; I do think the M badge is in one more location; you should have it on your dead pedal in addition to the other two locations. And I don't think there's a front camera, at least mine doesn't have one; wish it did to eliminate that blacked out area in front.

But in total excellent video with some good driving as well.

Thanks and yes no front cam on that model only the brand new LCI versions. I'm looking forward to my next BMW, this X3 I have should be gone b/w July and October. Regards...
