2001 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)
The X5 is, by far, the best vehicle I have ever owned. It still turns heads, runs like a top, and corners like it's on rails. The only thing I can say that's bad about this vehicle is that the user interface on the navigation system is atrocious, and the CD changer is in the cargo area. If I'm picking nits to this degree, you can see that I'm grasping at straws. I wind up negotiating with my S.O. about who gets to drive it.
Fast, solid, comfortable, spacious, agile, hot looks.
Rob the nav system from Land Rover's LR3. Typical european brakes require frequent wheel cleaning due to brake dust.
