A nice, compact high quality car with nice interior can be as "upscale" as a 5 meter barge.

And LOL, yes. I'd like to buy my cars in the U.S. and import it to Europe. Only the amount of bureaucratic red tape and fees is staggering. Well, and in addition to paying inflated list prices we also pay fuel prices at least twice as high as in the U.S. (even California).
Entry level in the sense that the X5 has more wood and leather and less plastic and pleather.

Hi Filski,

Glad to see another aussie here going for an X3.
Why not go with the MSport 30D, then you will have everything you need as petty much standard. Production starts in two weeks, with first deliveries due June.

I talked my dealer down to $1000 over dealer invoice, regardless of options. In the ended I loaded my up with all of them. I thought I really did well with that deal. I live in Chicago so I was able to leverage many dealerships against each other.
