Dang...Running out of options..

X3 lease is now on the "less than a year ticker" and I'm on the prowl for the next set of wheels...

Owned just about every BMW under the 6 series in the last 20 years (look at the sig lol)

Don't want another x3, know I'd be bored with it fast. X4 is just an X3 with a different appearance.

Test drove the Q5 TDI this week - nice ride..But I'd be bored with it.

Don't need another x5 or x6 as I'm not towing a boat anymore..Bored to tears with the 3 and 4 series cars and the 5 is too big albeit a nice autobahn cruiser...

I need something with utility so prefer a x-over. But damn, I kinda want something toss-able too like an M3 or M235i...

Starting to cast an eye to the SQ5..As sexy as Adriana Lima and can be had for probably $10-$15k less than m3 or m4 and it gives me some utility too..I have two labradors that = 180 lbs I haul around.

Or hell, maybe I'll just get a Countryman Allwheel S for $400/mos lease..At least they're a hoot to drive..

Anyone been car shopping lately??

With a kid still in college I'm trying to avoid going that high for a payment..

Reading your current X3's specs, it appears you have the 28i variant. Might want to at least give the 2015 xDr35i fully spec'd with performance tires and sport seats a spin? Although we didn't test the Audi products when we purchased our 2015 X3 xDr35i (as we knew what we wanted going in), the numbers suggest they should be comparable. It is a significant step up from our prior 2011 and our current 2012 without question. No chance we can get bored from it (likely the reverse), but everyone's needs are different. Good luck with your decision, but a fun journey for you nonetheless.

Yah, I'll probably give it a spin...

My wife has the 35i in X5 variety and it's nice..Probably a lot quicker in the lighter X3.

I had an 014 x3 loaner the other week and for some reason, that felt plusher, more luxurious than my 013...
