mib, yes and I like it a lot. Since there are so many other great options out there now I like to suggest alternatives that prospective buyers might not otherwise consider. For example "wally" wanted a stick -- BMW no longer offers that option here, but others do. He is in San Francisco where a smaller car is an advantage in driving the hills and parking, so I suggested the new Ford Focus ST which by most objective accounts is rather a fantastic little pocket rocket. Nothing against BMW I have had many of them ranging from a '68 2002 through the 3 series, 5 series, 7 series and now the X3 which will be replaced -- hopefully by a Q5 TDI. If the X3 came in a diesel here I would be driving one now.
