And its a freaking SUV not a sports car that you take to the track evey weekend. So ride thats way too firm its BMW mistake and every motorsport jurnalist that reviews X3m confirms it.
Yep, my wife encouraged me to trade in my X3M for a Macan Turbo, she loves it as a passenger. Extra $$ wasnít a factor for me.

Sadly, I still donít feel the passion in the Macan Turbo as I did with the X3M, even if I cringed over bad potholes, with my MSS, 20 AS tires. I actually prefer driving an extra X3 x30i we have so I added a Dinan chip and that thing takes off around town while getting a great ride.

Unfortunately there's only so much you can do with software.

I'm not trying to hate on BMW or the X3M particularly, I'm just a realist. I would like to see BMW go back to focusing on creating world class suspensions.
I think they found their mojo again with the M3 and M4. Rides much better.

if ride quality matters to you then the M40i is the right car not the M imo
Most actual race cars ride better than my X4M. The ride quality of the car is totally unexceptable when you compare it to the well-damped ride of the M2 CS and M5 CS.

My M2 CS feels like a Rolls Royce compared the X4MC.

I was very surprised and happy with the my21 when I had one for the day, I'd say it was better than my f80 comp, at very least no worse. Haven't driven a 22 but have one on the way.
Current - X3m Comp

Gone but not forgotten - F80 m3 Comp, F30 340i, F30 - 320i
