1st Bimmer, Great so far...
By X-tra nice ride on
Vehicle2004 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
ReviewWe bought our X5 9 days ago and couldn't be happier. We test drove the Acura MDX, Lexus RX, and Land Rover Discovery, but nothing compared to the comfort and luxury of the BMW. The others are extremely fine autos, and the Land Rover is just an off road monster (we had quite a bit of fun at the dealer's obstacle course), but the BMW was just a better fit for us. Tons of rear seat room, although we could use a touch more room in the cargo area once in a while. The engine and trans are awesome. I can't imagine why anyone would want to silence the I- 6 any more than it already is. You just can't beat the sound of a BMW. If you're worried about mpg, get a Honda.
Best FeaturesEngine acoustics, smooth shifting trans, sports car like handling (in the SUV class at least), panoramic moonroof, xenon adaptive lights (these are a must have!), gas mileage not bad for a 5000 lb suv (23 mpg cruising at 80 on the turnpike)
Worst FeaturesA little more cargo room, make the trans lock up a little sooner (this would probably adversly affect the shifting smoothness)
