    It depends on the wireless card chosen, I think it is mainly the basic 1000n card or the 6230 card where bluetooth clashes as they use the same frequencies...

    What wireless card module did you use?
    BTW, when it is slow? When running on High Performance?
    Intel Wireless has low power mode function which reduce its performance, which can be a factor.

    The issue lies with the wireless card, not the system. People have the same issue across ALL XPS laptops. The problem is only bad when running on 2.4GHz band with active Bluetooth use to my knowledge. My 6230 works fine, but I haven't used the Bluetooth yet. I also use it on 5GHz band at home.
    Laptop: XPS l702x | i7-2720QM | Nvidia 555m + Intel HD 3000 (Optimus) | 8GB 1333MHz (Corsair) | 1080p AG (no-3D) | Intel 6230 WiFi | Crucial M4 256GB SSD | Seagate 500GB 7200RPM | Backlit KB | 9-cell Battery | Blu-Ray Reader/DVD+CD Burner

    Desktop: Q9550 @3.4GHz | GA-X48-DS5 | 8GB DDR2 1066 (Crucial) | Gigabyte 560TI @ 900/1800/4000 | 2x 22" 1680x1050 | Vertex 2 240GB SSD | 2x WD Black 1TB (RAID 1) | Antec 300 Case | Antec TP3-650W PSU
    Still an awesome system!

    No, I have an XPS 17...but the issue with the WIRELESS covers ALL XPS models from this generation.

    XPS 15
    XPS 15z
    XPS 17

    All those have occasional interference between the Bluetooth and the 2.4GHz wireless, as I mentioned before.

    If you want impressions on the 15z, there is a thread in this forum called the Owner's Lounge for the 15z. Or something like that. The consensus seems to be the trim is crap and tends to fall off fast as it is glued on.
