We would have loved the X5 with a nice petrol V8 or twin turbo diesel engine. Unfortunately we pay £1.40 per litre of diesel thats £6.30 per imperial gallon or $10.10 converted to US dollars.
Comparing UK prices to US is interesting, current conversion rates would mean people in the US would pay $8.50c for a US gallon of diesel! In the UK we also pay an annual road tax based on engine emissions, this can be up to £460 ($737) depending on engine efficiency. My F25 2.0Ltr diesel costs me $208 a year for road tax and is very fuel efficient.
The X3 provides us with a reasonably sized luxury vehicle that does not cost us an arm and a leg to run thanks to our tax crazed government.
