I know you're in the honeymoon stage with your SQ5 but the X3 35i is in no way a dog in comparison to the SQ5i. There's only 4/10th's of a second difference between the two (0-60 ) as rated by factory.
Trust me, it's way faster by butt dyno and I think the numbers would back it up if there was a recent comparo.

2011 X3 tested by Motor Trend 0-60 5.6s

2014 SQ5 tested by Motor Trend 0-60 4.8s

Anyway it doesn't matter to me except that coming from a V8 M3, I thought the X3 35i was slow and the SQ5 feels very fast.
