I pretty much let my wife pick all of the options she wants in her X1 xDrive 28, my only request was to specify the M Sport package. My wife test drove the car first, then I test drove it, in sport mode (in the city). Since I won't be the primary driver, I'm sure it's ok if /when I drive it, as long as I put it in sport mode. I kept reminding myself that it has only half the engine as my e92 M3, so let the wife gets what she wants... We have also test drove another car (my pick), Porsche Cayenne GTS, but she complained that it was too big for her... Remember, it's not my car, that's all you have to remember!!! Make her happy now, and she will never tell you what to drive when it's your turn to get your car!!!
