Everything I wanted and More
By AX5 on
2011 BMW X5 xDrive35i Premium 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
The X5 is a great Sport Activity Vehicle. It is a bit on the expensive side compared to Ford, Chevy and other big named SUV manufacturers, but they aren't as thrilling to drive as the X5. Performance is spot on, like many other BMW's, and the new Twin-Scroll Turbo provides even more thrills. Coming from a 335xi (Twin Turbo) the X5 provides the same excitement during driving that the 335 did. Also the interior space is massive, and provides enough comfort for me and my occasional passengers. I do not regret this purchase.

HPFP, had two replaced on my 2008 335xi, I'm sure I'm going to have one replaced on the X5, as they are using the same HPFP. 4 Years and they still haven't found a viable fix. Gas Mileage is about average for a vehicle this size, but I didn't buy it to save gas, so it's not a big deal
