Looks like a X5 due to the rims and the running board.

You have a similarly sized Q7 and umpteen previous BMWs. This is a test, right?

Hah! No, I have a co-worker who is searching high and low for an X3 3.3i with M-package. I was at my folks house this weekend and my Uncle was there and I noticed he had a new X3 (at least that what I thought) in the driveway. His last one was black so I knew this was new. I snapped a quick pic and showed it to my friend and at first he said "never seen and X3 with running boards, looks like an X5". I disagreed because it looked too small to be an X5. Guess I was wrong. Yes, I am a long time BMW owner and enthusiast, but not really up on the X-series. When I am at the dealer, I spend my time drooling over 5, 6, and 7 series, especially the M cars.

Joe, you mean a X3 35i right, not X3 3.3i.

Yes! An example of my lack of X3 knowledge! I have seen pics of the X3-M, it's pretty sweet. Never seen one on the road.

Mein Auto: '14 X3 35i / '03 F350
X5
  1. Running boards like this were offered on the X3 E83, but not the F25...but they could be aftermarket
  2. the badge says "xdrive35i" - if it were an X3, it would be a F25, since the X3 E83 did not come with that engine.
  3. The F25 does not come with that style roof rail - the F25 roof rails are solid, not open.
Therefore, X5 E70.
