Hi,
You beat me to it!

Good (not really unexpected) result!
Cheers
Steve

Great video. That registration plate looks familiar - it's not belonging to someone here?

I love that CarWOW guy, all his videos are just soo cool. He should be on TV.

I did not expect that result!!! More interestingly is how the M340i destroys the S4 and others in the linked video. Ohhh to have a job playing with cars.

Wow. Get it?! If my X3 ran those #s stock it would be for sale after 1K mile break in. As always cool video from Matt.

Not really a surprising result, but good on the X3 nonetheless.

Funny that Matt mentioned safety for Volvo about the seatbelts. Volvo is a very safe car but in that particular scenario the Volvo would've slammed into the back of someone (thankful the seatbelts were ready for a collision) where as the bmw would've avoided the accident all together.

Would have liked the SQ5 instead of normal Q5, but glad to see the X3 hold its own regardless.

I’d like to see a side by side of a standard m40i against a jb4 or bm3 but haven’t managed to find one yet.

Think you sat in mine at Dunblane Hydro a while ago when you were on a tour!

The Q5e and SQ5 are very similar in terms of performance, especially from a dig. I believe there's even a video online of an SQ5 vs Q5e and the Q5e wins.
I have an SQ5 and I had an extended test drive of the X3 M40i. The X3 M40i is faster any which way you look at it (drag/roll/WOT w/o brake boosting).

The hybrid is faster than the current SQ5...
