Amen. I’ve hung on to a 7 seater performance order for almost a year. I finally had to let go and downgrade to a LR AWD, but after I accepted it I realized it was probably FAR more practical for my needs. Longer range, cheaper and more comfortable tires, $10k cheaper.I agree! I was planning on ordering the performance seven seater also. I was bummed when the sales rep first told me they weren’t going to have it, but then I did an overnight test drive in the LR and it was plenty fast for me. I felt like it was way more fun to drive and faster than my X100D, so I’m ok that there is no performance. Saves me some money too.
As much as I want a performance, I can handle losing to a corvette every now and then.
