We also drove an Audi Q5 thinking that this was the X3 killer and we were somewhat taken aback as the Q was not as nimble as the X. Also, the side mirrors were so large that I had a very difficult time seeing the medians and curbs. The big issue was with the dealership as we were unable to get anyone from the Audi part of the dealership to acknowledge our presence. Showroom was empty of personnel. We then then ventured back out to the lot and a very nice client adviser came out from the Porsche area and set us up for a test drive in the Q.
Glad we stayed with a winner: Peoria BMW. We love our X!
