Re: Would you be interested in an Audi RS Avant if they became available in the US Ma

This, but even then I would probably go with a year old RS4 Avant if available. If no RS4, I would wait for this to fall to the right price. One of the few wagons I would actually buy.

Rotors.

Re: X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, or X7 (Which would you choose to own?)

Realistically, I'd say X3 M40i or X5. Although I do think the X7 would be great if you needed the extra room/luxury.

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

Yeah, that's what Consumer Reports and JD Power are saying. I would consider them to be experts as that's pretty much what they do. I stopped searching after those two, so there may be additional...

Re: Chevy Corvette to become mid engined, lose 2 cylinders

Super sad when you can class up an interior with the Cadillac parts bin.

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

^ Interesting take. Not surprised about the driving dynamics of the X1. It is smaller/lighter and was considered to be pretty good.

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

Once again though, you buy old cars and plan for extensive maintenance and upkeep because it's something you enjoy. Even your dd's are old and out of warranty. That's definitely one way to go, but a...

Consumer Reports, JD Power, whatever. You don't have to believe them or agree with it. Make whichever brand you prefer the most reliable and/or highest quality. :thumbsup2:

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

Apparently that's what the experts think. Personally, I don't know. Guess it also depends on the models in question. Obviously, it's going to be a lot harder for an X7 to be as reliable as a poverty...

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

So... I guess ignoring the data that as a whole, BMW is more reliable and of higher quality than Honda, this has now devolved into a wrenchability contest?

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

Pretty much this, but they are so reliable mainly because they're old designs lacking many modern safety features and technology, which means I don't want one for a dd.

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

I'm saying Honda is rated worse than BMW for quality and reliability. I understand that could surprise people.

Consumer Reports: BMW #8 / Honda #15
JD Power Quality rankings: BMW rated higher...

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

Look at the brand ratings. Their quality isn't what it used to be.

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

Honda is falling fast. No dipstick can make up for that. On the flip side, I guess it's good that they are still serviceable seeing as they are going to require it more often. I'll be honest though,...

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

With regards to what exactly? Their overall brand reliability is worse than BMW and they make one interesting performance car, which happens to be fwd and looks like a turd with aero tacked on.

Re: Current Gen X3 3.0m sport review

I wondered what BMW you had in for service to see what modern car you may be comparing it to. e60 isn't very modern though and had pretty good feel, so of course the X3 is going to be a downgrade in...
