At our first service the SA offered to pick our X3 up and save us the hour drive to and from the dealership so we took him up on the offer. Our loaner for the fist service was a pretty non descript (non BMW) sedan that I was pretty disappointed in. The driver dropped off a 2017 X3 35i today that is pretty loaded and looks to be an M-Sport model. I like the seats and the sound of the engine. I know this will be very difficult for most of you to believe but if our X3 comes back today we won't drive the loaner X3. I've attached a few photos.

Just heard from the service department (it is 6:30 pm) and they will be keeping our X3 overnight and possibly longer. I guess we will drive the 2017 X3 as we have places to go tomorrow. They will do the child seat recall and our X3 may need one or more service updates which he said can take hours.

We did not test drive the 6 cylinder so it will be interesting to see/feel the difference after having almost a year of experience with the 4 cylinder.

Wow surprised they actually have a 35i as a loaner. I wish I could swap out the loaner wheels for my stock m sport 19inch rims. I wonder if dealer would ever notice if you swapped wheels lol.

We ended up putting 17 miles on the loaner. My wife got on the freeway, on and then off at the next exit, and said she like the power. Maybe a six cylinder is in our future?

You can really feel the difference between the X3 28i and the 35i on the highway, especially when you try to pass another car at high speed or when the car is fully loaded on a long trip. What the 28i struggle to do, the 35i can do it effortlessly. If you consider all the additional standard options on the 35i, the price difference is less than $3000. On top of that, if you consider the higher resale value of the 35i, the difference is even less.
