2010 BMW X5 xDrive30i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Got the new X5 for a very good price. With just a few hundreds over invoice and factoring in the $2500 rebate, great deal. Had a BMW 330i with ZHP before. Expected a similar "best in class" dynamic. Was quite disappointed. The vehicle is close to my outgoing 2001 MDX than the 330i in terms of performance and handling. Don't know about the turning radius myth. Where my MDX could make a straight U turn, I have had to do w/ 3 point turns. Big gaps in the doors letting dirts in. Tires are run-flat only. Hugely expensive as BMW disallow repairs. A small nail had cost me $400.

Best Features

Great exterior, best looking in class. Solid feeling on the road. Relatively good cornering manner. Not much tilting.

Worst Features

Please, let me have a regular tire. Extremely noisy. Very expensive. Pointless. Need more horse power to move the massive body. Can we have more precise engineering to have smaller gaps that can match an 8 year old Acura?
