Nice buy. When I had taken the TD for 325i I asked they sales guy if this car had power steering . A speed sensitive steering would be perfect for a car like this as it is tough driving in city conditions with a heavy one. But at higher speeds heavy feel for the control is perfect.

The white exterior with the terra and black interiors with the splash of burr wood finish. Just love it. Perfect colour combination.
vid6639: I second that. White and teracotta is divine. Go with the wind, Sir!

Default Congratulations

The BMW is definitely fun to buy and where it has edge over A4 is the tensions free ownership.
So enjoy your purchase as you have bought an excellent product.
Cheers

@morphin!
Hi,
I'm sorry for reviving this post, but I was wondering (a couple of years down the line now) how the car is - unless you've up and done bought another car.
I'm essentially talking in terms of service costs, FE (not important, though it does help), spares and things of the like.
Plus, after a few years running, there's bound to be additional gained experience.
Would love to hear your thoughts on it.

I have had the car for about 4 years now.
Car has clocked a little over 25,000 KMS.
No issues with Electrical's or Mechanical's so far. Everything works perfectly.
Had my rfts go flat on me 3 times, but the 3rd time i just repaired it and have been using the tire for over 2 years now without incidence.
Car has gone in for about 3 services.
Horn had to be replaced 2 times in the initial 2years but was covered by the BSI ultimate package.
Have used normal diesel and no issues.
Have not checked on the average I got but it is very good.
Deutsche Motoren is very good and my contact there is Mr Sanjeev Tyagi who has just sold me a new X3 and given me a fair deal for the old 3.
So any other question shoot away guys. Am happy with BMW so far, I feel they are more reliable than Merc/Audi.
Rest time will tell.
Cheers

Any reason you're going for an X3? I am being offered a 0% scheme for the X3 advantage model from BMW. I am considering it as an replacement for mt Corolla but cannot make up my mind. Plus there's a serious dearth of X3 ownerships, reviews and comments on teambhp. Just wanted to know your reasoning for choosing an X3. Just want your perspective.

My reasonings are simple.
1. I have already had a good experience with BMW and their dealer Deutsche Motoren.
2. I need a small SUV to get around in city and one that can be taken on our excellent potted highways without worrying about under body damage etc.
3. I love the fit and finish and the cabin size of the X3.
4. X3 has just been relaunched last year so another 6 years at least before new model shows up, therefore I don't have to worry about model getting outdated soon.
5. BSI + Extended warranty=Peace of mind
6. Excellent resale value of BMW's
These are just a few points that come to mind.
Every brand speaks about it' owner so in the end go for what fits you right.
All in all X3 is a great LUV.
Oh and one more thing don't confuse X3 with Audi Q3. X3 competes with Audi Q5.
Cheers
