Re: New x3 prices announced.... what a joke!!

Here in Canada you can't even get Mercedes Benz SUV GL 350,OR GL 450 with ventilated seats or factory command start,and you are paying over 70,000 to over 80,000 for either vehicle of your choice.

To be fair, I think you meant to to say you wouldn't try them in your WK. Suspension and handling in the WK2, particularly with QL in Aero mode, is nothing like the WK, and having driven an older X5, I'd happily put it up against the WK2.

Yes, I was speaking of my GC, so I meant a WK. Having not driven a WK2, I cannot speak to that. When they drop a 8A tranny in the WK2, I might get that chance to compare!!

It might also help that I have 10.5 inch wide wheels on the rear of the X5.

Re: New x3 prices announced.... what a joke!!

You know for well under those price points of the other models mentioned you can easily mod the Jeep to destroy them in every category. For 60k you can build one hell of a Jeep or buy a stock other model.

IMO I think every new vehicle is way overpriced and for the first couple of years your depreciation rate vs payments made will have you underwater.

Re: New x3 prices announced.... what a joke!!

well, here in Europe the X3 Base price starts at 54'000.- and the old WK1 Laredo (Europe Version 3.0l CRD) starts at 64'000.-. The Overland with 5.7l Hemi is 79'900.-. But BMW are expensive, that is no big news ;-)

Are there any taxes on top of these prices?

Re: New x3 prices announced.... what a joke!!

Yeah you get more for your money, but you will get significantly less when you sell it. So take it in the ass today or tomorrow but you pay either way.

X5>GC...but probably not 30k better. If money were equal I'd take an X5 everytime, and thats not a knock on the GC, everything just seems to work together a little more seamlessly on the X5, like when you get to get back on the gas midcorner its already in the right gear and theres no driveline hangups, just smooth power. Anyway the GC is way more robust and can actually do a little light offroading, which would just been kinda sad in any BMW.
