Booked the 30i today, they are going to deliver a 2021 one which they will get from the factory stock.

Brought home our X3, on the auspicious day of Janmashtami.

BMW X3 20d vs 30i dilemma-fca2b6c841584ca48f04734de224aa3d.jpeg

Drove it from Worli to Powai, what a brilliant car!

Pros:
- Spacious 5 seater
- Powerful and potent 250hp motor
- Panoramic Sunroof is huge
- Excellent body control, minimal body roll
- Hushed cabin, stellar NVH.
- ZF 8 speed gearbox is a gem, shifts when you need and is really quick.
- On a tankful shows around 720km range in comfort mode, that too in Mumbai traffic, for a petrol!!

Cons:
- 19inch wheels make the ride a bit stiff on sharp potholes. Are 245/50/R19s, wish BMW had chosen 55 sections instead. Mercedes-Benz GLC gets 235/55/R19s.
- No keyless entry for a car so expensive!!
- No ventilated seats option for the front passengers.
- No 360deg camera which international models get as standard.

Congratulations for your new X3 30i. Wish you happy motoring with your new Beemer. You money is well spent on it. Make an owner review on it as soon as you can.

I went to BMW Whitefield yesterday for X3 but they did not have any test drive cars! only an display car and the dealer was saying X3 has very limited stocks.

Any updates on facelift X3? There was no mention of it from the dealer when I went.
