I'm confused. You owned but never drove your Q5 3.2? Yes I did try the X3 in sport plus. In comparison to the SQ5, there is just no contest for power and sportiness. I haven't driven a Q5 3.2 but I bet that thing is even more a dog than the X3 35i when compared to the SQ5.
Congrats!! Did you pickup the Estoril blue one at Barrier? Please check back and give us an update now and then how it holds up as an M3 replacement for you once the initial new car excitement has cooled. I hope it continues to impress and feel like a good trade-off since it will make for a few more choices for me next year.
