Test drove the 2020 X3 M today

Was invited to the local dealer to test drive the new X3 M today as part of BMW's "M Tour". The particular vehicle was the X3 M Competition. Color was Donnington Gray -- very stunning color.

Really liked the vehicle for the most part. Handles SO MUCH nimbler/tighter than my X5 50i, even though I have the Adaptive M suspension with DHP. I would definitely consider this for my next purchase, except you can't install a tow hitch due to the rear diffuser. This won't work for me because I'm an avid biker and I frequently need to transport multiple bikes on a hitch-mounted bike rack.

So I'm probably going to buy a Macan as my next vehicle when I'm ready to get rid of my X5.

Unless there is some very odd design, it seems that all you need to do it cut a nice square hole in the diffuser and install the hitch. Any competent shop would have no problems doing it.
