BUT...you can still close your eyes and still kiss it.

There is still hope. Go test drive the new X3 M40i. Much better, although still somewhat lacking in steering feel it makes up for it in other areas.
Agreed. We nearly bought one, it's a great truck. Spousal unit just preferred the Q5 for the technology. All VW at the moment.

Active sound is completely ludicrous in the M40. It literally sounds like someone is tied up in the trunk and banging on the hatch when the exhaust pops and cracks.


I've only driven a base X2 once or twice briefly so I didn't get a good feel but so far, I've enjoyed the first couple of hundred miles in the M35...then I get in my M2 and really appreciate my life.

Too late, unfortunately. It's gonna happen. Why oh why, BMW ?

ASD in the m35i is loud too, but it’s just the drone you hear in sport. I shut mine off and cruising in sport is so much better.

I think Misano Blue is pretty uncommon, and is very eye catching. So far, it's only available on the X2 and Z4, so it's pretty rare.

Way nicer than LBB IMO. I'd totally rock an M2 in that color......if only I wasn't obsessed with black.
