2003 BMW X5 4.6is AWD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

Review

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 its styling.

Best Features

Performance & handeling. Exterior & interior styling. Very comfortable & quiet to drive. Great sound system. Awesome 20" wheels.

Worst Features

Rather do without park distance control..very annoying. Awkward & noisy A/C. Bad fuel consumption. 4.6 model is $70,000 loaded...$15,000 overpriced.
