This the one I have and pretty happy.

It's just too different of a car. I have driven a Countryman twice now, and while it's a fun car, it's much slower (7.3 vs 6.3[X1 28]/5.3[X1 35]), it's incredibly loud inside at full throttle or on the highway, the interior is very cute (but it's a little too cute for me to take clients to dinner). It also is a little light on some of the more luxury oriented features the BMW offers.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great car--I just want something a little more substantial, with a little more pick up...with a manual transmission.
