BMW M Series X3 M40i Review
Roaring 40

22 Aug 2018

BMW approached its development seriously, with the X3 being able to ford to a depth of 500mm

So here’s the thing, when BMW builds a car, there is almost bound to be some sort of “hot” model. In the X3’s case, right at the top of the food chain, sits the M40i. Basically a straight-six 3.0 dropped into the front of a vanilla X3 to make the car go faster….

Actually yes and no, the M40i is quite a bit more than that…

We have placed our behinds in so many different versions of BMW’s lovely “3-Series X model” (and even tested some which will not see the light of day on our shores), and all of them have their merits. From practical passenger and cargo room, to adopting their new gesture controls, which helps in keeping your eyes on the road, and furthermore, engineers have ensured that they built a car that rivals a road car in-terms of handling.

As an off-roader, BMW approached its development seriously, with the X3 being able to ford to a depth of 500mm, while its front and rear respective 25.7 and 22.6 degree approach and departure angles enables their SUV to tackle some real world off-the-grid terrain.

That aside, the M40i variant does take a greater emphasis on being a performance road car. Styling-wise, we love how our test car has been kitted out with those lovely 21” alloys, blue M Sport brakes, and a pair glossy black exhaust finishers lends to an even more masculine appearance.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
