We had to get the M sport which is like night and day compared to base on looks. But back to the engine choice it just wouldn't be smart for us to get it given our intentions of use. If I ever decide to purchase an SUV after the lease is up it'll be an SRT Jeep that's for sure.
I agree with others. getting a strip down X3 28i with M-sport makes no sense to me at all, but different stroke for different folks I guess. The M-sport in white almost look too white, the black molding of the non-Msport gives the car a nice contrast in my opinion. The Msport rims does looks a bit better, but you are missing the signature BMW LED angel eyes which makes the X3 look 10 times better from the front. If space is the main reason you need another car, why not just get a minivan? You keep saying the N55 is not a smart choice but your next car is going to be a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT?
