I am amazed at how good the X5 is. A completely different vehicle to the old shape and to my surprise (didn't think it was possible to better that one) much, much better too. The iDrive is a little tricky at first but it's child's play once you get the hang of it. I test drove the Audi Q7 before and it drove like a tank with noticeable gear changes. All-in-all this is a great 4x4. I would recommend it but then again mine was made in Germany.
