Exceeds my expectations
By Dan Bray on
2003 BMW X5 4.6is AWD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)
Awkward ergonomics compared to
Lexus...but that's no suprise.
Superior handeling to any Lexus I've
leased (LS 400, GS300 & SC430). More
solid build than Lexus. As comfortable
to drive as Lexus and Mercedes. Most
stylish and sophisticated SUV (Cayenne
& Mercedes SUVs close 2nd). Awkward &
noisy A/C. Worse-than-average SUV fuel
consumption. Amazing acceleration.
Excellent sound system, although quirky
controls. DVD Nav is inferior to
Lexus' DVD Nav. Smaller cargo room
doesn't bother me...and I'm an interior
designer. Always get compliments on
Performance & handeling. Exterior &
interior styling. Very comfortable &
quiet to drive. Great sound system.
Awesome 20" wheels.
Rather do without park distance
control..very annoying. Awkward &
noisy A/C. Bad fuel consumption. 4.6
model is $70,000 loaded...$15,000
