    Hi everyone,

    I'm Angie. I never used to come on these sites till I got one of my current cars. I have a 53 plate 330ci M Sport Convertible as well as my 57 Honda Civic Type R GT. Unfortunately I have fallen out of love with the Civic which I had bought after 6 wonderfull years of ownership of a BMW Mini and I have decided that I am getting rid of the Type R and buying a X3.,

    Never been one for the X3 but have decided to go for the x35d 3.0 M Sport with a lot of goodies on it.

    Now my Dad can stop having a Dig because I bought a Honda. I have been brought up with a Father who only buys BMW's. He has a 520SE and a E46 M3 Convertible and he is also considering a M6 Convertible while my Mum has a 530d M Sport Touring.

    Well thats enough jabbering for now.

    Angie

    Hi and welcome Angie

    Sounds like a good plan getting the X35D

    What happening to your 53 plate 330ci M Sport Convertible though?

    Pictures welcomed

    Also, its great to have some more female members...at times this forum seems to be a bit heavy in testosterone

    So dont leave us....

    I'll get some pics up. The Convertible is going nowhere - only got it as a play thing for the summer and when the weather is nice. It goes into hibernation at this time of year tho.

    Well thats why i've gone for x35d - its quicker than the CTR. Anyone can leave someone for dead at the lights its all about how you drive. I love the shape and its one thing I miss however I won't miss the plastic, crap paint and noise due to the car lacking sound proofing. Also the ride, I had a Cooper S with 17inch JCW alloys and Run Flats and I thought that was bad, jings I almost knock myself out driving on what looks like a flat road!

    Welcome to the forum Angie(angie4m), good to have you with us, I would personally have a X5 over a X3 as they drive far better and are built better so may be something to consider

    No, what is to consider is that I am getting a ex-demo car with 2000 miles on it for £21k from my dealer, but if I wanted to buy it brand spank then it would rush me just short of £48k - no comparision really.

    I don't want anything too big and I want to match the performance of my CTR. The reason I bought the Type R was because I was expecting at the time and a Cooper S was just too small. Didn't want to compromise on performance so that was a logical choice and again moving from a CTR I don't want to compromise on performance and the x35d is quicker than the Type R.

    How does that mean that X5s are not better?
    It just means your getting a decent deal

    It doesn't mean that. However like EVERYTHING in life what suits one doesn't suit the other.

    The X5 is too big for my needs so I didn't even bother looking at them.

    I have also advised that I do not want to compromise on performance and the X3 in question is quicker than my CTR and gives better consumption.

    Good point.. I misread your post I think.
    X3s are a lot smaller and TBO X5s are a bit too much like range rovers for my liking!
    Have you test driven the X35D?
    I never knew they were quicker than the type R. Thast impressive!
