Hi,
Just taken delivery of a fully loaded X3 M40i in Phytonic Blue with black leather interior.
Dropped off our old car 2015 ML63 AMG (with the optional performance pack - 557hp) and drove away from the dealer in the new X3.
Difference in drive experience is night and day!
The X3 just seems so taughter and more comfortable to drive than the ML63.
Despite the difference in power 557hp vs 360hp - the X3 seems just as responsive.
We are looking forward to the lower fuel bills in the X3!

Congrats!

Just curious, out of morbid curiosity, what was the MPG on a ML63?
Hi,
We covered around 108,000 km from new and average over whole time we had the car was 16 liters per 100 km - which equates to 17.66 UK mpg or 14.7 US mpg.
We expect the X3 to use considerably less fuel!
The other advantage of the X3 over the ML63 is the lower maintenance costs.
In Abu Dhabi - all new BMW cars are supplied with 8 years/160,000 km service and repair contract.
This means we will only need to buy fuel and tyres whilst we own the car.
The ML was expensive to service (last service at 105,000km cost around £900) and it used to eat brake pads and discs.
Cheers
Steve
