Have to disagree. It may not be as spacious or carry as much crap as an X5M but it certainly does the job of a family sedan/'sports' car combination especially in e90 configuration. The trade off for lack of space/amenities is a lighter vehicle and better handling. Plus my kids love hearing the NA V8 rev when I drive them around.
