Couldn't BMW keep it simple like before and have a 328ix or 335ix ....
it would have been plenty enough to differentiate the drive...

no need for the cheesy commercial/marketing X-Drive advertisement on the boot...

I agree. What's up with BMW and changing their nomenclature for their models? They want to change model names to further differentiate the models, fine. But why mess up with something as simple, clear and effective as using "x" to classify it as AWD?

But other than that minor issue, looks good. Liking the blue a lot.
