Happy but Sore

2005 BMW X3 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Have had this car for three months, and so far absolutely no complaints other than a very harsh ride with the sport package. Believe them when they say it is harsh!! This is not a problem at all on regular roads, but uneven pavement/ dirt roads/ speed bumps, etc are brutal. Good handling makes it worth the sacrifice, maybe. Navigation system is a fun feature, although inputting the destination is a little time-consuming. Some passengers have commented that it is difficult to get in and out, although I have had no problem. Very fun commuter vehicle overall, looks great, and has a nice cargo space as a bonus!
Excellent handling/ acceleration/ braking, as expected. Panorama sunroof is HUGE! Nice cargo space for a small SUV. Premium sound is great.
Ride is VERY stiff with sport package... also would prefer a more luxurious interior, although build quality is fine.
