And if I was able to afford a 2020 X3M/X4M Competition for $92K, I sure hope most guys at cars 'n coffee would consider me a car enthusiast. And if not, that's fine too. Bottom line, not all "X" purchases are pure grocery getters. With the ridiculous sales volume of the X SUV/SAC's over the last 20 years, even if the club brought in 0.001% of those owners, it would be a sizeable augmentation to the membership.

BTW, here's my online garage from over the last 10 years...Please let me know if you don't think I'm a car enthusiast who also happens to currently own an X4 M40i, two previous E53 X5's, and my wife's X1.
I didn’t say that an enthusiast can’t own an SUV. My point was if you only own an SUV you are probably not a car enthusiast. No pun intended but an X is not a car.

Also an aside, how many Xs do you see at a BMWCCA track day?
