Also, it's impractical to custom order an X3 so I'm stuck with what's available.

What the high end preconfigured X3s here have are: 20d 8 speed Steptronics, Sunroof, Nevada leather seats, iDrive with a 6" screen, X-line package, Combox, Cargo rails/nets/bin, Zenon lights (non-adaptive) , basic PDC (no camera) and 19 inch Wheels. Dealer also says that since it is an 8 speed Steptronic, it also has Sports suspension. Don't know if this is true.

What do you guys think of this per configured package? Also is the 19 inch wheels with RFTs any good for ride comfort? We have some bad roads here and there.

Thanks in advance for your comments and insights.
That's not the reason it has a sports suspension. 19" + sports suspension is no probs on the ride. In fact, I much prefer it to be more connected and less floaty. Quite an odd combination of options. 19" 309s on an SE are expensive, as is sunroof, xline and Xenons, and you get all of these but no pro nav.

And as per philtrick, where on earth are you?!
