I wish they tested 50mph to 80mph in kick down

Ditto 30 to 80...

Closer to real world driving.

Liking the 5-60 measurement as that takes away the launch that few will use:

I did over the summer, but wasn't pleased with the lag...but I guess if you're cognizant of keeping it in the power band it's all grins!

I ultimately gave up on the M3P...I literally have an X5 M50i awaiting allocation, but maybe I should check out the X3MC again...

If you're buying a bmw M suv, you are missing the point. Chances are you never understood the point.

Oh man, I love mine! The Model 3's got a 5% power increase and one-pedal driving updates coming within the next week. So it's going to get even faster, for free!

The X3M has grown on me for sure and it is WAY quicker than it feels.

X5 will be roomier and more plush with less edgy handling. Still will be fast. What is more important to you.? For me impressive as the X3/4M is I would choose the X5 m50. Either is fine choice I'd say

I see a lot of talk about the GLC AMG...but I'm a firm believer that the SUV in this range to beat is the Stelvio Quad. This truck gets no shine and it's easily the best SUV to hit the market in the past few years.

I looked up how many threads there were about it on Bimmerpost and I believe less than 10 lol. It's by far the most aggressive, best sounding and best driving SUV I've ever driven. So much so...I'm looking at them right now and trying to convince my wife it's worth the cost of admission.

With all the new releases BMW has coming out...90% of them having me feeling underwhelmed and after a solid 10 years with the brand - I'm disappointed. The new X3M/X4M range is "cool" at best...but for $80k+ I'd be shopping elsewhere in a heartbeat.

Incredible skidpad result, especially since the x3 m40i only manages .85. And people were worried about the relatively small 255/265 tire set up. I wonder if the x3/4m wheels and tires fit on the m40i.

What issues did you have with the F90. I added a RaceChip to mine and the only issue I had was it is F A S T.

10.8 at 130mph at 3500ft DA.

I like those issues issues !

Thought I'd start seeing more of the X3/4M's. The only one I have seen on the road so far here in San Diego is mine. Love mine!

I drove X4MC last week. Regardless of isolated zero to some number statistics, it's a winner for me. On the shopping list.

1ft rollout. I got a 4.02 on mine which was 3.77 with 1ft rollout. Basically the 1ft rollout subtracts 2/10ths from the time.
