Yes, the Porsches with the LED lights are quite attractive. I seriously would consider one however not with a small engine (I4). The six in the X3 definitely is superior in my mind.

Yes, you're right. I found out reading some reviews as well. Luckily I don't need glasses other that for bright light.

Car as New?

I'm curious having owned my 2014 X3 35i for a couple of weeks, what came with the cars as they were new. Netting, tools, and any other accessories.

Thanks!

A Question of Great Socio-Politico Importance!! Heads-up!!!!

The lenses can be removed and have ground ones replaced (not that I will). The main feature is the Bose sound system (aside from the non polarized lenses).

I'm having an issue wearing sun glasses and seeing my heads-up display. What sunglasses do you use to allow you to see the heads-up display while driving?

Thanks in advance for any leads.
