Anyone considering switching to the X3 M40i?

Post by Mooeeey » Mon Nov 27, 2017 1:49 pm

I'm seriously tempted. Is anyone else?

Had a play with the configurator on the BMW website and with the options I want it comes to about 55k.

Has anyone seen any PCP examples for it yet?

55k for an X3. Mental money.

As the old saying goes, 'A fool and their money are easily parted'.

Bear in mind the X5 M40 destroyed the Bentley, Porsche, Jag, etc in tests - the X3 should be mental for less money

All depends what the residuals will be like, got to be more then the M140 so on pcp won't be as expensive as you think.
Problem like you say is discounts will be non existent

No doubt it'll be a great car/suv but at 55k there are other cars I'd be looking at.

I’ve got my name down for a test when it comes out. I love the B58 engine and have always liked the X3 so to mix the two together will be very nice and some extra height and interior room would be good.

But...it depends on discounts and prices available when it comes out.

And I really do love my 240 and think it will be one of the last of its type, coupe, big engine etc so I did buy it as a keeper.

I think I'd rather have the GLC43 or GLC63 over this. Those would be my first choices if I ever ditched my diesel SQ5.

Sounds like it would be cheaper to pcp an m3 so can’t see the x3 making sense.
