LOL. I was alone so it was not easy to take picture where I climb but I can say that xdrive has a lot of grip. I was not in the mud but on Rough gravel and slippery pine leaves. Backing up in the forest on a hill is a challenge if you want to save the paint :-)

Thanks for sharing the great outdoor PICs. I assume that is somewhere in Canada? Just beautiful country. Nice to see you put the X-Drive to use also.

It was supposed to be aluminum but in order to now delay the delivery they have put wood. Now I am not sure if I should go back to aluminum, they can change it for free.

Yeah Canada. Unfortunately that day was very shiny and I realized later that many picture where overexposed, but too late now.

Not I miss our winter yet but I look forward to try xdrive performance in a snowstorm...

Offroading is an M-sport, is a pretty good fashion show.

The hitch was included in my deal, the dealer has sent the car to a 3rd party vendor, Marois in Quebec city, a 650$ value.

Granted its all out of sight but think they gave the job to the apprentice with a bad twitch or crazy fish eyes.
