We have had three 530's but hated the
new design, so we went woth an X5.
Why we ever drove anything else is a
mystery to me. We've had a number of
snowstorms already, and the car has
been amazing, plowing through six
inches of messy snow and holding its
own no matter what. It feels just
like a car, has a roomy, well-designed
and luxurious interior, and we love
it. It doesn't have that boxy feeling
of many other SUV's we've driven.
We've owned BMW's for 18 years, and
there's a reason for our loyalty. The
2004 X5 does not disappoint. Now all
we need is a little Z4 to match.
Nice little gadgets in the cockpit and
beautifully appointed interior. Still
a great quiet drive and superb BMW
A compass on board would be nice. A
tape deck in addition to the existing
CD layer would be a plus too.
Otherwise, she's perfect so far.
