Why not trade the E93M and get the X5M? Soccer Mom is not vehicle specific, it is driving slow in the left lane while yakking on the phone, oblivious to the poor bastards trying to get around you. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and brands.

I decided to cancel my order and get a rusted out 1962 Ford pickup.
I just can't bear the thought of being seen driving something that potentially may or may not be called a soccer mom car by somebody.

I've only seen 3 2011 X3's "out in the wild", 2 were parked and 1 was on the freeway.
When I saw the new X3 on the freeway I quickly sped up to follow along side to look at it... car looks amazing in motion btw...

There were no passengers, and the driver looked just like Charles Bronson... no kidding! So there you have it, it's officially not a soccer mom car!

Isn't Charles Bronson dead. Are you sure it wasn't Elvis?

Uh, you would then be recommending that the OP do this by proxy, of course ...

This ^^^.
Just imagine being able to remove the stigma associated with soccer moms by driving the kids to the soccer game with the X3.

Death Wish

I'm now quite worried about the new X3's image because Charles Bronson's got one!

Yes I think he is dead, he must be cause he's in super old movies that he looked old in when filmed, but just saying this X3 driver surely didn't look like a soccer mom, some guy probably in his late 40's with a big mustache, etc... unless it was his wifes car...

Chuck Norris once broke the land speed record on a bicycle that was missing its chain and the back tire.

Talking of death, Chuck Norris died 20 years ago, death just hasn't built up the courage to tell him yet!

I think you've got it spot on! I came from an E91 325 - miss the tight drive, but love the extra room, higher driving position, more powerful engine (35i), 4WD...

Hey LZ...over 11,000 posts! Maybe if you worked a little you could get a real man's X, as in the X6M....
