runs great. Got it from a CCA member that took care of it. No kid stuff and

Love the exhaust tone of the 3.0. The ride takes a little getting used to (coming from a 2000 528i sport) but I like it. the wife has a tendency to get car sick as a norm so I let her drive.

I can't do another winter w/ a rear wheel drive car. The 528i was always a third car so I never relied on it for winter use and the few times I did drive it in the snow with snow tires it was okay but any incline was a hope and a prayer.

I have tooled around w/ the M52 engine enough to feel confident in repairs on the X3. Flushed the radiator coolant. Lexal the leatha.
