Driving characteristics between D and i are different as you probably already know. I had X5D (although SUV, not sedan) for three years and couldn't wait to get back to i. Now I love driving again....

I hate using the cup holder due to the chatter/vibration. Isn't it a known problem without any permanent fix (other than replacing the cub holder unit)?

For mounting a phone near dash, I think...
