2004 BMW X5 4.8is AWD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 6A)
Review
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.
Favorite Features
comfort seats, acceleration really fun, stability and lack of body roll, auto dimming mirrors, exterior appearance, panorama roof. You will find yourself at 90 mph easily and often. Thats without the performance tires on yet (I started with Snow) Do not try snow in performance tires. Seat heat
Suggested Improvements
cup holders designed by complete moron, unacceptable for 85K vehicle sold in America, we love 20oz coffee not two small bottled waters. No notification if door is open while driving (really!), very little leg room in back seat, too high for Dog even with ramp; Can not I-Pod the 4.8is. NAV sucks
