Yeah -- I don't get the whole "everyone should buy a wagon instead" thing. Why shouldn't we all buy Civics? Don't they get better gas mileage too? Don't they have a lower center of gravity too?

I have an X5 and it still puts a smile on my face everyday. I recently ordered an X3 to replace it (will be joined by a Z4 or similar "toy" in the spring). I honestly don't care what Car & Driver thinks about it -- I drove it, I liked it, I ordered it.
