1. changes from 05 to 06 models? My dealer told me there will not be a change to the engines or interior. Only change is the color keyed bumpers. Anyone has any confirmed info? Color choices?

2. Sports vs non-sports. Test drove a 05 X3 3.0 w/ sports but found that it was more on the bumpy side. However preferred the 3-spoke steering wheel & the 18" wheel package. Feedback from any X3 3.0 sports owner?

I own a regular X3. I tested the sport and found the standard shocks were fine.

Unless you want the sport seats, wheels, and/or steering wheel - the regular suspension is plenty stiff.
When in doubt - pass out!
