My wife's 2006 X3 has been great, and one of the most enjoyable aspects is the ability to drive it more like a sports sedan than an SUV!
Exactly; the X3 is no E30 M3, but it's much more entertaining to drive than most any other SUV- although I have to admit that I was very smitten by the X5 4.6is press loaner I drove for a couple of weeks back in 2001.

I don't think we'll buy out the lease on the X3 - it has been a fantastic truck, but I'm just not sure about making payments on a truck with 45K miles. We're in the process of buying a house & maybe the 2nd car payment won't be such a good idea.

Press loaner? You are with a PR firm?

Advertising? Sales? How are you getting a press loaner?
Don't tell me that you are a journalist.....

The Pirelli PZero Nero M+S all season tires I fitted to my wife's X3 2.5 lasted over 48,000 miles, but this week it was time for a new set of tires. I decided to go with the new P Zero Nero All Season which has now replaced the PZero Nero M+S. As usual, I purchased the tires from Tire Rack and had them shipped to one of their recommended installers. Total cost including shipping and installation: $617.00.

How are those tires? I'm getting ready to replace my OEMs on the 07 and would like something a little more sticky than the Scorpions it came with. I never have to worry about snow or mud, just rain.

I really like them. They have amazing grip and provide a decent ride as well.

I just took my wife's 2004 X3 2.5 to our local BMW dealer for the Inspection I service and a brake fluid flush. Absolutely no problems were detected- aside from needing front and rear wiper blades. Total cost: $358. Having said all that, the years and mileage have really taken their toll on the truck's interior and exterior:
