Actually, most of the magazines I've read rated the X3 on the ride. I really need to try one out before I can say anything. Tomorrow I'll be heading to the dealer and get a test drive (if I can find one with sport pkg). I have an X5 3.0i SP and a 330i ZHP, so I know what a firm ride is. I'll be directly comparing it with the two and hopefully will answer some of the questions. Stay tuned.
