This is an SUV for people who have
always loved driving performance cars!
You will not feel like you've traded
the fun of driving for the utility of
The car has an incredibly strong feel
for the road and positive powerful
control. The 4.4 sport package is
exceptional, and worth the extra money.
Love the performance! Feels a lot like
a 530 but heavier. Really like and use
the Nav system. Like the rain sensing
Get the CD loader in the front. Need a
third row seat option. It's hard to fit
a bike in the back unfortunately....
With every company making Suv's, each
company is entitled to their own vision
when creating their model. The X5 is an
excellent vechile in the standpoint of
build quality, and luxury features. The
interior is nicely laid out, everything
you would expect from BMW. When you
drive this suv you'll notice it is
smooth. But, it really isn't that much
fun to drive. Very average. It feels
like the Grand Cherokee I used to own.
Living in Michigan, you expect your suv
to hold up in bad weather. The X5 is not
really suited for this. Very average in
bad weather. The Awd system is not
suited for heavy snowfall. My GMC Yukon
is much better, for much less money in
these kind of situations.
The interior. The heated seats are a
great feature for anyone who has deal
with cold winters. The radio is pretty
nice. BMW has legendary customer
service. You have a problem, they take
care of you. They make great vechiles(I
own a 745il), this is just not one of them.
The X5 is great if you don't have to
deal with bad weather during the winter.
Don't expect ab 'awesome' ride. This suv
is just kind of average. Not really sure
it is worth the money I paid for it. The
exterior really needs some work.
