Previous X5 Owners ... Questions on Move to X6 ...

So we have been looking hard at an X5 and are ready to get an order placed, but after driving a few of the cars available, I really did not like the body roll. Both had standard suspension, though I think one had Adaptive M, not sure. Either way, the roll was pretty evident and I found the 50i to be really jerky off the line with poor shifting.

So, now we are considering the X6, which I imagine handles better due to its lower center of gravity and slightly wider footprint.

The question to those who have made the move is: Are you happy with it? Would you have done something differently? I understand visibility is worse in the X6, and you lose quite a bit of cargo space -- but in the X5 you'd have to stack pretty high to take advantage of that space anyways.

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
