Shopped for an X5 for months. Didn't
want to pay the $50,000 for a brand
new so I found a 2002 X5 3.0 with only
17,000 miles on it. Extremely clean,
hardly driven car. Have driven about
1,000 miles so far and have loved
every minute. This is my second BMW
(1997 328is) and they are by far the
most amazing DRIVING cars in the
world. The X5 lives for 80+ m.p.h. on
the highway. 3.0 is plenty peppy off
the start with plenty of torque but
lacks some power at speed. No big
deal though. Read all about the
electrical problems in the 2001's
which made me stay away from them.
Paid $37,250 for a 2002 w/every option
but NAVIGATION. (bought 7/10/04)
"dancing" Xenon headlights at start
up, comfort of seats, on-board
computer, rear window shades, sport
package with 18" wheels, safety
features, performance at highway
speeds, very solid/stable.
deeper storage compartment under
center arm rest, better gas mileage.
