yeah sure, suggesting buying 2 cars instead of 1? we have 5 month of snow, so buy m3 and then just park it in garage for half a year??? People stop being arogant. For example Top Gear always saying that diesle are best solution. But when its -20 diesle cars wont start ( exp Moscow ) or Us consumers, from your point of view we can also say that big stupid suv like Escalade are pointless, ( they are bad quality, shity of road capability, gas guzzlers ) also its impossible to park car like this in Europe, but for Usa its ok, cause parking is not a problem. I belive that marketing departament in Bmw did good job. Mb have Ml amg, Volkswagen have Cayenne turbo and Q7 v12. So why bmw cant create X5m, especially if it is better that all of above. No after promotion i'm lucky enough to afford this car, and believe me its awesome. I sold my m3 and i dont regret it, cause X5m is much better all-round car for our country.
