'Course, most of the newbs in this forum probably never heard of AM.

But this has been discussed to death. The X thing, that is.

BMW 325iX Refers to the 4wd

I don't recall any companies refering to a production car as Experimental, it is no longer an experiment at that point

Yes it has, but everytime, someone comes out and says it means "experimental" which was just an assumption and not based on any fact that I have seen. Don't want to be passing false info off to the n00bs now do we
