2010 BMW X5 M 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Purchased this car as a demo from a BMW dealership in Germany 21 months ago (it is U.S. spec). I'm fortunate to live in Germany where I put can put this car through its paces on the autobahn. Iíve driven it on long trips and in all weather conditions and it is nothing short of an exceptional machine. If you are looking for the best of both worlds, this is your car. Exceptionally fast, solid and comfortable. The fact that BMW has made virtually no changes to this vehicle in the last 2 model years speaks to its perfection. Iíve had no mechanical problems. A rattle in the moon roof trim and a squeaky spring in the rear seat were quickly remedied by the local dealership.


Favorite Features

M Mode, idrive, twin-turbo acceleration


Suggested Improvements

BMW should address the problem with paint damage to the rear quarter panels caused by 20Ē front tires throwing road grit . Discrimination in warranty coverage in Europe as U.S. spec car in Europe only gets 2 years coverage vice 4 in the US.

Review

An SUV on steroids. As an owner of a Porsche 911 Turbo, I'm used to speed and handling. As much fun as the Porsche is, this car makes much more sense as day to day vehicle. Elevated vision, toys galore and acceleration to spare, I enjoy driving this almost as much as the Turbo.


Suggested Improvements

Even more horsepower.

Review

I thoroughly enjoy my X5M and only wish it had even more torque and horsepower. As an owner of a Porsche 911 Turbo, I appreciate fine engineering and performance and this machine doesn't disappoint. It also comes equipped with all the modern amenities not normally associated with German cars, user friendly nav system, two mp3 connections, every toy you could possibly want. Keyless entry, 4 cameras, sensors, it's impossible to find a flaw.


Favorite Features

Power, handling and style.


Suggested Improvements

Give me more power.

Review

I thought the GT 5 would be a nice blend of performance and function. The sales manager suggested I drive the X5M. The X5M was much more fun to drive and more functional. Surprisingly comfortable than the GT with a more supple ride. The ride is tons better than a standard X5. The M's handling rivals virtually any sport sedan. It is big and heavy and the mileage is atrocious - but expected. Don't have enough miles to judge reliability.


Favorite Features

Acceleration and handling.


Suggested Improvements

New IDrive is better than before but could use further simplification.
