BMW never again!!
By Alessandra on
2007 BMW X5 4.8i 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)
Bought the car with sport package including 20" wheels. Wished I've known then what I know now. Replace the rims several times($1,100 each or $275 to fix),once 3 were crack at the same time. If I run over a pothole for sure 1 rim will crack. In the city it's hard to avoid potholes when traffic is too close behind. Those rims have run flat tires,so NO spares,NO car until new rims arrive(about10-12 days). Now there is a problem with the battery,it gets "awaken" for no reason,which means battery is dead,so key is stuck,NOTHING works,had the car jumped and running would not get into gear. Pick up car today(1 week),left window was open during rain,left door & seat controls soaked including leather seat
Clock too small,hard to read. When updating software should update Ipod. Ipod interface not very practical,dashboard needs updating, seats dont go back or up enough,hard for someone with long legs to be comfortable. Control to open garage has very little range compare to old Range Rover & Mercedes
