Front license plate poll

How many of you have chosen NOT to place a front license plate on your Bimmer even though your state requires it?

For those who have just taken delivery of the X3, do you notice any lag in acceleration, the so called "tip in" non-linear acceleration problem? Has this issue been fixed?

Don't think that's possible for X3's in the US. I was told that a software upgrade would be necessary to get rid of the acceleration hesitation.

Yes, I agree with the added depreciation of the 550 vs 535. It depends on whether you lease or buy. With a lease it's really a decision between performance, cost, and driving habits. You walk away...
