M3 - No service plan for the Q5? Out here Audi does provide a maintentance plan (as does MB) but this might be a area specific thing. In any case just like BMW, the oil service intervals are so far apart (15K miles) you wind up doing a mid cycle change anyway (on your dime). As far as the ride of the X3 compared to the Q5 -- I am glad that BMW finally got rid of the absolutely horrible rough ride over bad pavements that the previous X3 provided!
