What do you do when your M5 is in the shop? Get a loaner. The M5 had some catalytic converter and oxygen sensor issues that came to light when they were performing an oil service. Of course, I had them perform the oil service because she was flat-bedded to the dealership thanks to a flat tire and was about due, anyway. More on that in another post.

I am glad the X3 was given as a loaner. I was intrigued by this vehicle and wanted to test one out. This provides a perfect opportunity and keeps me out of a Neon, which was the preferred loaner of choice down in the Fort Lauderdale area. Nothing quite like arriving in an M5 or Z4 and then retreating in a Neon. What are those folks thinking?

More pics to follow as well as driving impressions.
