I cross shopped this with the X5. I liked the XC90 to look at and sit in but, that engine is just not a good fit in a vehicle this size. Some of it might be the throttle mapping more than the engine...

The hood is kind of cool. The splitter would be great for grinding against curbs and steep drive ways. The rest, meh.

I would assume different wheels as well. That's been a pretty standard feature of the competition pack if I recall.

I ended up ordering the last allocation of M3 my dealership has for 2015. I liked the M235 but, have 4 doors is nice and it was too good of a deal to pass up.
