FYI: Performance Delivery Center has X3's now!

Just wanted to let everyone know since apparently they did not have any before. I named the Silver 35i "Cone Eater" after my daughter got through with it!

Wonder how long they keep the PDC demo cars before they reset the odometers and send them off to some unsuspecting customer?**

I'm jealous. We only had 3 series and X5s available.
Did you do the other roads (offroad) portion in the x3?

Also how was the x3 on the cone course? Did you feel like you could really push it and the worst that would happen is the x3 would slide?
Or, because of the higher center of gravity, did they have you ease off of going full bore?

Yes we did the off road course driving the X3 35i. It waded through the 22 inches of water and did the frame bender just as easily as it's bigger brother. Lots of fun.
I would say it handled the cone course very well. But I definitely was not going full bore. But I did catch up to the X5 in front of me!

Lucky you. We had 3 people picking up X3's and only two X3's were available, so we all drove X5's. Wish we could just have at least used them on the off-road course since we weren't all doing this at the same time.
