Never had a test drive since I ordered in early June. Got the M Sport even though we wanted Glacier Silver and settled for Mineral White which is great. Wanted the body moldings, sports seats, sports suspension and wheels (18"). I find the suspension a lot less stiff than other BMW's such as M3's and a 2007 X3 M Sport. It's a lot more compliant and soft than the Mini Clubman S we traded in. Love the rear camera and park distance control, didn't want the camera but wanted PDC since I have it on my E93 and if your ever around kids or animals its a literal life saver or at least keep you from running over something you leave in the driveway. I wouldn't worry about bent rims, they probably all test out to the same specs so they all could bend if you hit a big enough pot hole. I didn't really want Biege interior but not that I have it it lightens up the interior to make it feel bigger but wish it had black carpet because Beige will get dirty without floor liners.
