From my experience in test driving the new X3, it seems like this model will be a hit for BMW. BMW’s 2007 X3 3.0si gets a subtle name change – but virtually everything else is greatly enhanced. A new 260-horsepower, 3.0-liter engine is harnessed by your choice of two quick-shifting, 6-speed transmissions. Brakes that dry themselves and a host of other performance features add to BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system, for improved handling and traction. The interior welcomes you with rich materials and inspired features, such as optional Comfort seats and heated rear seats.
First of all, the engine and transmission are a very nice and necessary upgrade compared to the older model. A lot more apparent low-end power from the engine and it is definitely quiter.

The interior design is superior, the quality of materials have higher standards. The Nevada leather in the premium package model was noticeably suppler than the 2006. Grain seemed much closer to the quality of the leather in the new 3-series. The extra swaths of wood are adding more interest to the dashboard.

Styling-wise, the new Non-sport front end looks nice. I really, really like the way the painted part of the front bumper swoops under the black portion and continues below close to the ground. It is really stands out with contrast colors.
They expect to have sales higher than the previous model due to the numerous improvements over the older model.

So far, I can tell you that I’m impressed with this 07 model. I’m still waiting to receive a model with full options so I can really test out all the improvements and especially the Sport Package with the 19″ wheels.

My wife is currently driving a 06 X3, but probably next year, I’m going to replace it with the new model, or maybe I can wait for the new X5, one of the new BMW models that I’m really excited about that, but that’s another story that I will cover in another article.

You can go to www.bmwusa.com and you will see the 2007 X3 configurator up and running.
Also, for our Canadian friends, BMW Canada has updated their site also a few days ago: www.bmw.ca

    Don’t Buy an X3! BMW does not honor they’re warrenty! I have a 2005 X3 with approx 20k miles… Here is the list of problems I’m dealing with:
    - Last winter I had to charge the battery myself several times when the temps got below zero. One particular day it took until 5pm to get it going. It was pretty frustrating to deal with on a ‘New’ vehicle.
    -Many weird problems with it when battery was going down the tubes, it finally had to be towed to the dealer because I didn’t trust driving it there.
    -Power window constantly freeze up in the winter.
    -Wipers were junk after one winter season.
    -Squirters freeze up due to bad design.
    -Rotors were & are delaminated, rusty & warped at 16k miles.
    -Calipers and/or rotors are freezing together nightly when below 32 degrees. I have to wrestle with it in the morning back & forth in the driveway to break them free.
    -Tires seem to have excessive wear for the miles. They seem to brake free easily adding to my distrust of the car to stay on the road.
    -Car is very noisy in front end. Are the bearings going bad or is it just brake noise due to wobbling rotors?
    -02/29/2008. -20 degrees. Car Wouldn’t Start. Battery doesn’t have Green Light for full charge. Chevy Across the street starts fine & drives away. More to add to my aggravation.
