I'm having this issue with wheel gap. Not sure the extra height of the x-drives would have bothered me as much, or at all, were it not for all the talk about it on here.. Kind of like when someone points out a gray hair you didn't know you had or a tiny scratch on your car you never saw until someone pointed it out and now it screams at you every time you walk up to the car (ok, on the car I notice it on my own )
