After driving a SUV for 15 years it was a true experience to purchase the X5. The ride is supperb, the gas mileage is acceptable, the handling is outstanding, and from this past winter the control in ice and snow is unbelievable. I tried to put this X5 into a spin or slide and could not make the vehicle loose any control. What a pleasure.
The seats are extremely confortable for long trips. Instruments are easy to find and simple to use.
Storage for the driver is limited due to the sun roof motor, adding small amount of driver storage would be benefit.
