I was more excited to receive this vehicle than any
other. Now it is here I have very mixed feelings.
First off: Imola Red/Nav/Floor/Sirius/comfort
seats/Metal running +pedals/set of snow
tires (minnesota). Comfort seats are really great,
engine noise great, acceleration great. Navigation
hopeless; most user unfriendly system in existence.
You can NOT I-pod or bluetooth phone the 4.8is.
This 'truck' is great if you do not have a family or a
dog (but I do), two front passengers will be very
happy. Soon as you try to load anything of
substance you start to wonder why you spend 85K
(taxes inclded) on it. It is a completely impractical
SUV; REALLY think why you want this X5.

I did a diplomatic purchase on this
vehicle through Joern Esser at Passport
BMW in Maryland Heights, MD. Reeves
BMW in Tampa delivered the vehicle and
did an awesome job getting the truck
ready for me. All in all an
outstanding ride with the performance
to match and looks that are
exceptional. I highly recommend this
BMW to anyone in this market and
especially so if you can qualify for a
diplomatic sale - the savings are

Best looking SUV for this size on the
market. 20" rims, super-wide low
profile tires, deep exhaust tones make
this combination unbeatable.
Performance almost equal to my AMG
Mercedes. Build quality unsurpassed.
Cannot wipe the smile off my face when
driving it. Purchsed the Imola Red so
this is even more rare (everyone has
black or silver). Handles so well I've
had to set the speed reminder to let
me know when I pass 80 mph (which is
often). If you are performance minded
and want a good looking high quality
vehicle, this is the SUV for you.

The 4.4i also receives a new 4.4-liter engine with Valvetronic and a fully variable intake system. Both models can add Sirius Satellite Radio and Bluetooth hands-free cell phone capability as dealer-installed accessories.
