      Can this car use regular gas? Or would that literally kill it? xD

      MJ4cars97. BMW vehicles always require the good stuff (premium unleaded). It can cause engine knock.

      Very nice review Steve. After the week with the X3, how did you feel about the ride comfort?

      Interior of this thing is absolutely horrendous... not sure whether it's because of American suppliers or BMW heavy cost-cutting.

      Gosh it's nice to see the vehicle and not the reviewer in your videos!!! Please keep your same style of review, O.K. So many of the reviews I view on the Internet are of the reviewer and he/she droning on with out really ever seeing the car/SUV/truck!

      Too bad they don't sell the 30d in the US. Neighbour has it with M-Sport package, 258 hp and 500 NM of torgue (368 pound foot). I agree with your comments on exterior styling, but the M package makes it a lot better!

      I also think it's a BIG improvement in comfort and noise inside the cabin.

      Nice review, greetings from the Netherlands.

      @stevehammes
      I think that 3.0L I-6 Turbo would better suit the larger X5. And the X5 has the M-series superperformer turbo V-8 with over 400 hp. (You've test driven X6 M before)

      @SirLarryHorse Your handle brings to mind Bob Valvano.

      @76carmel I'll tell you what; this base engine is more than enough for most people. I'm sure the turbo is great here but it's probably overkill.

      Steve, I feel that you need a driver's liscense, and another liscense to drive a BMW. BMW's transmission looks different, not a true shifter.

      I'd also get this X3 with the Turbo I-6, but I think it's about $4K if I get the info right.

      Great review, just not worth the price unless you have the have the BMW emblem. Are you going to review an X6? I saw one the other day and was looking for a review.

      Great review! I agree with some of the other comments, for $43,000 the navi should be standard.

      interior design, especially the seats, needs to be updated, my 2002 535i seats are way more comfy

      @leoborros Its an overpriced ugly piece of junk. Not to mention that interior is very outdated. I think I'd rather have a Honda Jazz.

      @Slimecrazy234 At first I thought it to be overpriced, but as I got to know the vehicle and its offerings I think it's in line with the competition.

      Did you come away thinking it was overpriced or worth the money compared to competitors you've also driven (Q5, RX, SRX etc...)?
