This isn't just an X3...nope...this is an X3 M sport! This has the really comfortable seats, not those planks the base models call a seat. When you sit in this level X3 over the standard level the attention to detail and quality is abundantly clear. As the old saying goes you get what you pay for. I'm sorry but I will ALWAYS opt for the better model vehicle when I buy stuff. We spend a ton of time in our cars throughout our lives. I want that car to put a smile on my face if I will spend that much time with it. I haven't had a single person ever say to me "I wish you talked me into something more practical..."
