I am tending to agree. There's a wagon in Charleston for about the same $$ as the X3, plus it has sport suspension. But I'm not sure about logistics these days and I wouldn't want to buy without a test drive.

The price on this 2017 X5 keeps dropping, too. But it's still a chunk more change: https://www.unitedbmw.com/inventory/...kr6c37h0u13020

And then there's this new Golf Alltrack, that probably could be had for $25k: https://www.stonemountainvw.com/inve...m17au6km522993
I have a 2016 X5 50i that could be yours if you can wait a little bit...

Hmmm. Shoot me the details when you can. I do strongly favor the 2017 infotainment refresh, but could be persuaded perhaps. I have already told my ex, if she wants to sell hers to check with me first...But if she's smart, she holds onto it.

Plus, I thought yours was a lease?

Not a lease, though I'll probably lease the next one (was supposed to be doing that for an X5 or X7 m50i this month, but obviously not happening).

2016 X5 50i
Carbon Black / Black
M Sport
19 inch wheels
36K miles
exec pack - soft close doors, comfort access, a bunch of other stuff
Dynamic handling
LED lighting pack
Lane change assist / whatever. It doesn't have the radar cruise or self driving stuff.
leather dashboard
heated and ventilated seats
heated steering wheel
black exterior trim

I think it has a few other random things but those are the highlights - it was a BMW exec car in NJ before I had it. Best car we've ever owned.

seems like the n55 version of the X5 might be the sweet spot of price / value. I found the same thing when we got ours.

Thanks, Zach. I'm actually more drawn to the X3. I've never loved driving big cars. And I think the X3 is all I really need.

I don't blame you - would totally do an X3 in your situation. I like the new ones a lot.

Used cars are used cars.

Carmax and Carvana both let you "return" cars and don't seem to make you jump through a lot of hoops to do so. Does Vroom?

Nice car. Why are you guys thinking of selling it?

Just an FYI, I am toying with the idea of selling my 2017 F15 xDrive35i, 42XX miles. Priority 1, built early May 2017, PCD early June 2017.
