      Finally, a truly luxurious ride. I prefer comfort and quietness over sportiness. X3 for me. BTW, which has the better ride? The X3 or the Macan?

      Autogefühl ...Thank you so much for replying. Lease is up next year for my car and I am torn between the Macan and the X3. Yes, I do prefer a comfortable, quiet, luxurious ride, with a touch of sportiness. I’d take your advice and go for the X3, but the Macan looks soooooo nice 😊

      It's funny how extraordinary rim size appear like regular rim lately. Those 19s look like 17s, noting special about them. The 21s on the ///M40i will be the winner. ✌

      Now that BMW has cancelled the 3 series tourer for Canada, I'm looking at getting the X3 xdrive 30i but with the M sport package. We took the X4 M40i out for a spin and it was seriously quick. I'm not sure we need that kind of power and the wife hated sitting in the back seats of that car. Again great review Thomas!

      Autogefühl thank you again. By the way, you compare the X3 against the X1 and X4 in terms of interior space and driving feeling, but you never compare it against the Audi Q5 or Mercedes GLC. Is it your own rule that you don’t compare across brands? What would be your favorite among these 3 options?

      Thanks! I found it strange because it is not entirely round, it somehow has a conic upper part

      Interesting comparison to the X1 especially the size part. Need to test drive it now to see if it's worth considering.

      Thomas, if you compare BMW X3 30i and VW Tiguan with similar engine but to compare not only the engines but the whole automobile.What would be your choice and why?

      @Autogefühl X3 is bigger outside, but is it bigger inside and in the trunk. It's price is close to VW Tuareg, which offers "more car".
      Thomas, thank you for the answers. You are doing great job with Autogefurhl!!!

      I have this car from December 1, 2018, and pretty much agree with what Thomas says. People at my office asked me last week, how do I like my X3 (30i version) and I said it "calms me down."

      It's exactly what he said, it's so quiet and smooth in operation. I had the prior 2013 X3 35i with the 300 HP turbo six and liked the surging power but it wasn't a "calm" car like my 2019 X3 30i. I think he says "grown-up" as well which says it perfectly. I like his precision in describing operations and hits the relevant points nicely. Having driven loaner 2018 X3 35i, X1's and X2's, I much prefer the X3 package. There was a numbness and squirrel-y feeling to them especially on my daily super-high curving transition from Hwy. 580 to Hwy. 24. I didn't like it.

      No such problem with my new X3, it's solid, confident and smooth.

      Also I like the usable space with the headroom (I didn't even consider the X4 for this reason, plus don't love the styling because it has such a big rear butt), rear seat and storage room. The 2019 X3 30i is a beautifully balanced car, works well, nicely designed, performs well enough power and handling-wise to keep me happy. It feels like it might be lower than my previous X3, I don't have to climb up into it. Though dimension-ally it's bigger, it's funny because it actually feels smaller than my old car, when you're driving or parking.

      Not mentioned was the rear tailgate: Besides opening, I can also close it from inside the car, or using the foot gesture control which I love. It even beeps to warn you, and tested it on my friend and it will stop closing if it touches your head! Huge functional improvement, I use this every day with groceries, etc. My wife has a 2014 328GT and my newer car's gesture sensor is greatly improved. And I really like the interior (and exterior) night ambient lighting.

      Good review and I especially like being out with Thomas on the streets of Germany. So it's not all high speed Autobahn's?
