I'm partial to the pre-LCI X3s but I don't like the "half" aero kit on the standard 2006 models for the US. Something about the pairing of the M54 engine (for the US/Canada), gearboxes either MT or AT, and software and chassis electronics just seems "right". I don't like the softened standard suspension on the later models; NC has predominately good roads and hitting bumps at speed don't unnerve it.

Aside from the fuel consumption and COČ emissions, I don't have much to complain about my 2004.
