i'm really happy that the X3 won't be going up in size too much. the addition of the TT engine will really wake up the truck, as the 3.0si just isn't quite up to the task when you want to do some spirited driving.
you have an auto right? The sitck really makes the car fell a faster. The same thing happens when I drive a 2006 330i with auto compared to my stick. It really makes a big difference. Do I wish it had more power of cource I do but with the Stick its pretty quick. Now if the put in the TT they better offer a manual trans or I dont know what I am gettnig for the wife the next time. We have a 2 and a half year old and she still refuses to drive any Automatic car which is exactly why I lover her

The amber gauges are not gone. Have a look at the F01 brochure that is on here.

i love the look of mine. it's blue/gray with Terracota interior. must have been a custom order, because i haven't been able to find that color on any other X3, and it wasn't even listed as an available color.

Like others have hinted, i just hope the interior is going to be a galactic leap forward or its going to fail against the competition. Everytime i step into my X3 after i exit my 335 i feel like i have gone back in time.

On topic, glad to hear the TT will be put in the next gen. x3, with a few "plug and play" items it should make for a quick little SUV...

I have a loaded 2007 X3 and a 2008 M3.
I absolutely love the way the X3 drives and handles. I take clients out in it during the week, tow a motorcycle trailer and go skiing with it on weekends. I test drove several cars before buying it, and owned a couple of LR's before. Nothing came close to the overall feel of the X3.

Although the present engine has plenty of power, I've always thought the twin turbo would be a great match for it.
I plan on keeping this one until the new one comes out, but in the meantime feel that I've got a great car for my needs.

Those of you bashing it must have some pretty amazing standards. I've owned a lot of cars, and think that for what it was built to do, it is exceptionally good.

X3 is probably the most under rated BMW on the market. You can pick one up for chump change CPO ( I did this weekend ). Easily outperforms an X5 but you have to live with 1990's nav and less than spectacular interior.
