The Jeep SRT kind of remind me of the old American muscle cars, way too much engine and not enough handling, its like putting a Corvette engine in a Hummer Whats the point? As far as the X5 50i, now you are talking about a SUV that is close to $80K, comparing apples to oranges really.
You are correct that if you are going to buy a strip down X3 28i, it doesnt make sense to upgrade the 35i due to the cost. However, if you were to load up the 28i, the different is only about $2000 for the 35i.
Enjoy your new car.
Well, everything is more or less subjective. I don't get to drive ours very often but I do think that the power on 28i is plenty. Yes, it is an SUV, not a race car. The price difference between 28i and 35i is more than that but I agree that for 2014 models it is comparatively less than what it used to be in 2013. And on the options it is also subjective, if I were buying 2014 model I might think long and hard about the premium package (that we got in 2013). IMO, in 2014 it does not contain anything that I consider essential. Features that I wanted were part of it in 2013 but are now part of the base.

Now, for the sports packages, I found the non sport seats to be uncomfortable, so I wanted the sports ones. In 2013 luckily there was "cheap" sports package that had that, so to me it was good deal. I personally didn't mind the black panels, they go very well with titanium

Lastly, I'm sure that leatherette works fine for some, but I really would not consider not getting the leather.

OK, long post, forgot what my point was...
