Not currently in the market, so haven't directly cross shopped them, but would generally agree with the comments already posted. I haven driven both.

I have a 2017 330e and my experience has generally been good. I am seeing some decline in the reported battery mileage that I need to have checked out. I'm happy with the car.

The Tesla is clearly...

We picked ours up on July 29. The fix was applied at the VDC in Baltimore before shipping to the dealership. They did tell me the parts were shipping slower to dealerships.

Bridgestone does allow repairs under some circumstances. Not every shop can pull a runflat. You might check Tire Rack's installers and search for those that will install runflats. But doing nothing...

That's been my experience as well. Previous X3's were all but fully loaded. I think BMW's move to design lines and tiers, as well as separate packages, may have "confused" the configuration for the...

I've played around some more and it looks like it was a straight no-line build with maybe leather (hard to tell) and nav. No comfort access, etc., which I've had on previous X3 rentals. Also, even...

Yeah. I hear you. It's one of the reasons I'd seriously look at MB, even though I'm not fond of the C-class at all. The automatic tilt away steering wheel and easy entry/exit features start getting...

I've had an X3 as a rental several times. I had a 2019 from Enterprise a couple of weeks back. Other than some weird (and theoretically impossible) rental car packaging, I loved it. It felt almost as...

Yes. It's the reason I have a 330e instead of another Prius. If the Model 3 had been closer to release, I might well have bought one. If it handles well, that's a bonus.

I don't know why people on...

I kind of agree with this. It "should" be, but may have to be activated. Ask the sales guy then have him activate it to demonstrate. I don't use it on my 2017 F30, but it's supposedly there to turn...

That is sharp!

It's going to be interesting to see what happens when BMW, Audi, MB, even Cadillac, decide to go "all in" on the EV market. It will be even more interesting if they negotiate...

Actually, apparently no. Not unexpectedly, the degradation is non-linear; most loss is early then a much slower average rate of decay over the life of the battery.
