This is my 3rd x5. The other 2 had the 4.4 engine and this has the 4.8. I love this truck. We also have the BMW 645 convertable. My husband and I like the x5 better. It is fast, handles like a sports car, never been in the shop for any repairs. It is alot of fun to drive. It has all the bells and whistles and is great on long trips. very comfortable for everyone. I even like the looks. I plan on getting another one when the lease is over or maybe I'll get the x 6. I recomend it to everyone. It sucks gas like most SUVs.
Engine (very fast), the commanding view, handling is like a sports car, love the iPod conector. Love everything about it.
The phone bluetooth feature isn't loud enough. You can't integrate the iPod with the radio if you have the 6 disc CD player.
