The handle and preformance of this car even at 5 years old is way beyond my expectations it feels and drives like it just came off the showroom floor. I truely love it. The beauty and appreance of my x3 makes it a true Diva of its class.
I'm 6'5" and Theresa plenty of room.

At 6' 5" tall it's not easy to find a vehicle I'm comfortable in. The X3 is an exception. There's plenty of leg and hip room and the seat adjusts enough to make it very comfortable for long trips. The gear select is odd and takes some getting used to, Consumer Reports even mentions it, but the rest of the electronics are easy to use. It's been a great car/SUV/crossover so far.

The 2007 X3 is a tidy package that stands out in the luxury midsize SUV class, a formidable opponent to the Acura MDX among others.
It promises reasonable fuel efficiency, an upgraded engine, satisfactory passenger space, legendary handling, and an astonishing panorama via the standard oversized sunroof.
Sadly, this particular BMW does not deliver on initial build quality expectations.
In this owner's experience, repairs have been performed on a near-monthly basis, beginning only weeks after initial ownership.
The vehicle is assembled by Magna Steyr in Austria. Be ready to expect, at the least, noisy lifters (repaired with a complete cylinder head exchange), a rattling sunroof (the bane of the X3), and incessant rear cargo cover squeaking (persistent despite replacement of the entire cover). With the 2007 X3, BMW falls short of their reputation, with overall shoddy interior craftsmanship, an area in which squeaks, rattles and groans abound.
Oh, and did I mention that the heat no longer works via the dashboard vents?
In summary, while BMW provides incredible handling and engineering, the X3 falls short in the quality department, particularly when the astounding asking price is taken into consideration. More reliable and rewarding alternatives would include the Acura MDX or similar vehicles (i.e. Land Rover).
