      My experience:

      Bought a 2007 X3 2.0d (M47 150 ps) at 50.000 km at the BMW Dealer, at
      german market prices (not a discounted trashcan).
      70.000 km - clutch plate was gone - entire clutch kit replaced 80.000
      km - turbo failure - replaced turbo 100.000 km - transfer case failure -
      replaced transfer case 120.000 km - guess what - timing chain failure
      will never touch bmw again.

      noticed the tires up close are 275 /40 19's... my gosh... no wonder there's road noise. Iirc, the M-sport version of a couple years back didn't have such wide and low profile tires--instead had 45 series. Also, that body looks like M-sport line even though the X-line logos/imprints are on the seats.

      A back seat recline would be nice.but 7 seats are not good you lose too much cargo space.

      Heck better than Audi and Merc
      Heck beats the Nissan. Beats em all. More pretty too the BMW X3 2016/17 it’s nicer than the new 2018 style. New 2018 has some nice interior lights and nice leather. Still the X3 2016/17 stacks up Aces ✅✅✅✅✅

      Nissan quaskai is by far not a competitor to the x3. It competes with the x1
