M3 X5d pickle

So I have this nice 2011 X5d. I also have a 2012 335i Coupe. Problem is my wife "likes" the X5 but prefers to drive the 335i because of it's size. I'm on the fence trading the X5 for a 2013 M3. We've got no kids or intentions to have any. Why in the world should I keep this X5?! Other than to take lazy co-workers to lunch... and haul a rug occasionally.

I don't need help making this decision but I enjoy reading opinions, rude gestures, etc. What do you guys think?

Trade the X5d for an X5M. Tune it and your wife will love it.


Or, get a new job with no co-workers and throw your rugs out then ditch the X5 for an M3.

If you don't need the utility then def go for the M3.

Something about your wife not being able to maneuver the x5 around the kitchen island. There's a joke in there somewhere.

Wait for new M3/M4 maybe.

j2m, unfortunately #2 isn't an option as my wife is also a good shot.

a HUGE Rug fits in the M3 just make sure you get the cold weather package so you can lower your seats

I believe the rear seats in the E92 go down without cold weather package.
