X3 Moose test

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
X3 does well in Moose Test

Test vehicle: diesel X3 AWD xDrive, M package with 20" wheels, 245mm front tires, 275mm rear tires.

Best run was at 50.3 mph (81 km/h) where the X3 avoids all cones.

Slalom course completed in 24.5 seconds. Driver noted that it wasn't difficult to weave the X3 through the cones. The steering responded quickly but he couldn't go quicker due to the weight of the vehicle.

Thanks for sharing!
It looked very composed at 81km/h. I'm pleasantly surprised.

I own 2022 LCI X3 M40i. If this one had the adaptive M suspension like my car it would've done a lot better. Also an optional M differential you can have added.

When I saw "moose test" I thought someone hit one with an x3 here in Alaska, either in an accident or during testing. Moose collisions can be fatal, as they're basically Volkswagens perched on toothpick legs. Hit one, and your bumper will take out the legs, with its massive body rolling over the hood right into the vehicle occupants. Bad, bad, juju. And not uncommon here in Alaska
