Seems likes it's already a roaring success! Decided to take advantage of a 24hr loaner and got in touch with my dealer to see if I could organise one for mid-August when I'm back for three weeks. This was his reply: Hi The CO, I hope all is good. Unfortunately BMW have been caught out by the success of the X3 M40i and cannot keep up with demand. Consequently they cancelled all orders for demonstrators so the build slots could go to customers. We have put a request in for one as soon as possible. I will make a note and let you know as soon as one is available. Best regards, Bloke. Impressive stuff, the reviews have been good and owners also seem to be very happy with them. Personally, I don't think an SUV is the right car for me but after extensively testing Macans I'm really curious to see how it measures up performance-wise. Mrs CO likes SUVs so you never know but I'm hanging out for the rumoured M340i..
