Attacking Mid is on a distinguished road
I live at 6700 ft, so I'm sure the 3.0 struggles a bit more for me than if at low elevation. That said, we rarely drag the camper out in the mountains. We're usually going to lower elevations for better Jet Skiing.

BMW really got the transmission tuning right on this vehicle. The engine seems more powerful than it is because the trans adapts very quickly to avoid bogging down. My wife's E83 they didn't get quite as "right".
