RE: New X4M and X3M Go Official
Only interested if they come out with 5.0d versions. The petrol variants will be stupid thirsty even if you drive like a grandma. Completely the wrong engine for an suv imho, probably why they left out the fuel consumption figures on the press information, wont sell many units if they do...

RE: New X4M and X3M Go Official
I dont understand how they can justify these hideous and good-at-nothing things, but can't do an M3 Touringdunno anymore

And the reason I say good at nothing, is simply because everything is compromised.

Its not a proper offroader, because ground clearance, big anti roll bars, low profile tyres....
And its also not a proper sportscar, because its heavy, topheavy and pretends to be able to go off the tarmac......
Its not economic......

So what is it really?

Yes, it was never intended to be a proper offroader, hence they call them SUVs

I also bet hauling 0-100 in 4.1s will make many feel like they are in a sports car Thumbs
