Welcome and congratulations on getting a 3 pedal driving machine!

IIRC the low first gear is so you can still tow a decent load with the modest 6cyl torque.

I think the 04 - up 6 speeds are better.

The resident X5 manual owners should be chiming in with their experience, or go chat them up in the manual transmision registry thread.
