It was hard to part with my 7 series that I loved and have driven for the past 8 year. I was considering ML500, XC90, Cayenne S and X5 4.4. ML500 and XC90 did not have heated steering as an available option, which was one of my criteria. After test-driving X5 4.4; I knew it was the right choice. Drives like a dream. Great power, great cornering... and it is fun to drive! I've only had it 6 days, but it's a BMW..... you just can't go wrong!
Bluetooth allowing cell phone to automatically store numbers in the car's system and be available by scrolling on the steering wheel! And the panoramic moonroof! Full-sized spare tire.
