My wife is trying to convince me to post a review. She’s convinced it will go viral since there aren’t many at this point.

Nice. I've been waiting for these. Hopefully there will be more to come as deliveries of the 540-start coming in.

It was announced as XDrive-only from the start. Maybe they'll release one for the LCI but I doubt it.

I simply cannot listen to that reviewer's voice for more than 30 seconds before I want to poke my eardrums out. It's like listening to Allison Hannigan in "American Pie"......

Which G60 models do we get in Canada? Is the 540iX missing from that list?
