    1999 BMW Z3 - Coupe

    I love my Z3 Coupe. It has that great tight feeling when driving, accelerates like a beast & is the perfect size for me. I don't mind it only being 2 seats (I never had to drive carpool) & I love the cargo space. My 2 dogs easily fit in the back & I can raise the protective cargo net to keep them back there. I can also haul 50lb bags of horse feed w/ no problem. The gas mileage is pretty decent - I average about 27 mpg so not great but good enough to make me want to use this as my daily driver

    2012 BMW X6 - xDrive50i

    Pure fun! I love my car. Great looks and performance to boot. It goes fast when I want and still has the all of the comfort of a BMW. I love the aggressive good looks and the higher stance. One thing I'd like to see improved is the entertainment system.

    2008 BMW X3

    An expensive mistake

    Pros: Interior

    Cons: reliability

    It would take a month of Sundays to list what did go wrong with this car. When it works it's great..

    2006 BMW X3

    Great Vehicle

    Pros: Miles per Gallon

    Cons: It sports the same steering wheel and controls as my old 1999 528i. In seven years they can't upgrade or improve?

    The X3 is comfortable, roomy in the front, and a great driver. I have read reports that the ride is harsh, but I don't feel it is bad at all. Steering is tight and responsive and the ride is what is expected from a small SUV. It is more a utility vehicle than luxury, but fit and finish is nice. Excellent gas mileage for it's class. I get as much as 27 on the highway, but average between 24 - 26. All around averaging 19-21. Can't beat that for the power it has from the 3.0l.

    2004 BMW X3

    Best All-Around Sporty Family Vehicle

    Pros: the combo of comfort, practicality and sportiness

    Cons: in more remote areas had problems finding the premium+ fuel I preferred

    I've owned some vehicles that I really appreciated and enjoyed, but my X3 2.5i beat all the others by a mile! I did a mixture of mostly rural-and-suburban driving, with an occasional ('bout twice-or-thrice a month) foray into urban driving, and *averaged* about 22-23 mpg. When I went on trips I could count on 25-26 mpg! I took a long trip out west to the Rockies in the summer of '06 and found that my X3 *loved* high-altitudes combined with temps around 90F. -- average mpg: 28, *and* had passing power on the up-grades!
