Bavarian Police Test BMW X3 for Active Duty

No, somebody's mother didn't take her Halloween costume a little too far. The Bavarian Police, presumably unaware of the correlation between shopping bags and the BMW X3, are testing a version of the soft roader for highway duty.

The model in question is the X3 xDrive30d — complete with a stonking 218 horsepower six-cylinder diesel engine. Aside from that incredible powerplant, the X3 is adorned with enough LED lights to make an Audi jealous. From its hidden lights in the front bumper, to the rear hatch light show, you'd see this Bavarian cream puff a mile away.

Which is probably the point. That said, the last time we were on the autobahn, we were averaging just under 120 mph — in a diesel MINI — with half the horsepower. Maybe that weakling patrol car X3 isn't so useless after all…

denyo77 is on a distinguished road
they already have the 520d and 530d Tourings on the Autobahn... why would they need the X3?
