You're funny. The six speed is hardly antiquated. It's just not as efficient as the 8s, but does provide better straight line performance.

The X3 is an F series chassis, totally unrelated to the E84 chassis of the X1 which is a derivative of the "outdated" E91 3er wagon, which used the same 6s transmission in the 335i offered everywhere but NA.
