my new X5
By n king on
2004 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
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.
