This is my 3rd X5, my X5 35d has less features than my last one... I wanted the 35d and didn't want to order. I get 20 mpg in town, going long distance 35mpg. Great torque, better going uphill than gas engine. Better blue-tooth than previous years, have to let computer system boot...gives chance for car to warm up. Get Rear- Climate package...didn't get like past X5s...should have been patient and waited. My wife will be getting one when her 335 lease is up. 2 SUV family...best value and drive in its class. Must get running boards to finish off the look.
Great cup holders, parking sensors & camera. Comfortable. Great pick-up off the line...better than both gas versions. Auto lift gate is great.
All models should come with tinted windows. Navigation and SAT radio should not be options, should be standard features.
