you definitely have some valid points. i originally bought an xi for driving in the colorado snow, but have really come to appreciate it for summer driving too. the torque is a front/rear 38/62 split, so it really feels like an rwd car. i have a feeling your Mercedes sends most of its power to the front wheels, so i understand your frustration with it. you should try driving an E46 xi sometime. i think you'd be surprised.
