I recently purchased a new 2011 X5 Sport model and have to say I love it. I was previously driving a Range Rover Sport HSE and have to say it's a nice change. Comfort, quality and great handling put my old RRS to shame. With the new turbo engine this thing is fast and has the handling of a coupe.
By far the handling of this vehicle is superior to anything else in it's class. The upgraded Navigation and sound is a nice plus.

This is my 3rd BMW and by far the best. The performance is awesome and the panoramic glass roof is unparalleled. I am averaging 18 and 22 miles per gallon. Sound system is great and the you hear no noise from outside. Suspension is great and the power of the twin turbo is incredible. Handling is awesome too. takes curves with ease and does not drive like a typical SUV, more like a sedan.

My X5 50i is now 4 months old, has 9,000 miles and still whines at around 2,000 rpm, badly enough to embarrass a Lada driver. Apparently BMW is OK with that. However, if you complain enough you will discover that this problem is common to the X5 50i and the 750i which both have the same power train. Apparently BMW has now determined that the cause is a defective engine oil pump. The repair requires removing the front differential and axles, the front subframe, lifting the engine and removing 2 oil pans in order to replace the pump. This is documented on the Bimmerfest website, so I was not alone with this problem. Now, do I trust my Dealership to do this without screwing up my car?
Power, torque,ventilated seats, handling. The active steering option with 2 turns lock to lock, mitigates the otherwise large 42ft turning circle. Brakes are excellent. The 20" wheels suit the body style, in my opinion. No noticeable degradation to the ride with the 20" wheels.
Should be able to CLOSE the rear hatch remotely. Contrary to other posts, the A/C is marginal, especially here in Florida. It struggles, but the ventilated seats help a bit. A remote start feature should be offered. After 4 months I'm still waiting for rear panel from Germany for my trailer hitch
