- Exterior Styling

Bucks like a bronco. Horrendous ride. Halting transmission.
Very nice, but pricey
Having had a BMW a number of years ago, I am aware of the performance of such vehicles..great pick up, drive, steering control, and overall build quality , still doesnt disappoint. I traded in a 2006 Lexus RX 330. I have to admit I had buyers remorse for a short period of time. The Lexus interior is far better appointed..with all the bells and whistles. They relly have the "luxury" down to a science. The X3, on the other had, is comfortable, good looking, but a step down from the Lexus interior and extras..all for more money!! So, why the X3 over the Lexus? The name BMW still has a certain mystique to it, the build quality of BMW is unsurpassed, the handling of the BMW is far superior. The X3 is a "car guys or gals" car. There are fewer of them on the roads, which make them a bit more unique. I have grown to give up a few more of the luxury items and really appreciate the performance of the vehicle. It's a BMW thing! The cons of the X3 are the following: the navigation is not the easiest to operate, compared to Lexus; altho corrected from previous year models, the shifting between 1st and 2nd gear, especially at lower speeds is still a bit choppy and touchy. Otherwise, I have no complaints. Would I buy it again..u bet!
