Been a Ford Chevy man all my life but the wife liked
the X5 and to repent for all my fishing and golf
trips, and to keep taking them, I reluctantly agreed
to buy har an X5. Mistake!!! I'm married to a
BMWer Junkie! She loves it and wouldn't have
anything else! I too have come to like it more than
I'll admit to her. The handling in terrible weather is
awsome, and the power is unbelieveable. The
brakes are the biggest and best I've ever seen. The
car has to be one of the safest ever made.
The raw power and handling are second to none.
BMW needs to quit using SAV instead of SUV. Some
of their competition uses that fact in their claims to
be the best, fastest, safest, etc. I would like to see
them install the thumb control transmission as on
other models. How about an X6, or X7?
