Test drove the 2020 X3 M today
Was invited to the local dealer to test drive the new X3 M today as part of BMW's "M Tour". The particular vehicle was the X3 M Competition. Color was Donnington Gray -- very stunning color.
Really liked the vehicle for the most part. Handles SO MUCH nimbler/tighter than my X5 50i, even though I have the Adaptive M suspension with DHP. I would definitely consider this for my next purchase, except you can't install a tow hitch due to the rear diffuser. This won't work for me because I'm an avid biker and I frequently need to transport multiple bikes on a hitch-mounted bike rack.
So I'm probably going to buy a Macan as my next vehicle when I'm ready to get rid of my X5.
