+1!

Moreover, my '13 X3 3.5 M Sport was a sensational SAV - fast, fun, great exhaust note, and way better seats to boot. 2.8 vs. 3.5 is night and day difference. If you love to drive....do it.

Visually - the M2 nails it. Its purposeful design and tighter overall dimensions communicates BMW athleticism on steroids. A 6MT M2 might be in my future. I will look forward to driving it.
