Hi all. Getting ready to turn in my 2018 x5 50i. I loved the v8 in that car, but the bigger wheels came with low-profile tires which gave me and the family a really shitty experience in terms of comfort and suspension, especially considering I live in NY where there are many potholes. I’m looking to move to downsize to a 6 cylinder with normal-sized wheels, but I’m curious what people think about the x3 m40i vs the x5 40i.
I’ve heard that the space difference between the x3 and x5 is not really that much, but if it is major then that’s something I’d need to consider. I’d love a car that is sporty but can still be a comfortable ride when I’m not trying to drive super fast. My 2018 x5 was only the former. Let me know what you guys think! The x3 m40i would also be about $100/month cheaper thanks to a higher residual price compared to the x5 40i. Thanks guys.
