Vroom Diesel
By chuck1969 on


2011 BMW X5 xDrive35d 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


We traded an 2009 ML 320 Bluetec on this one. I miss the better visors in the Mercedes and the easier Command system versus the Idrive. And this is the most updated version of iDrive? I miss the keypad to make calls and change stations on the MB. But now for the good part BMW is head and shoulders above the MB in terms of performance, and It is rated better in the MPG dept. I love the panoramic roof. I like knowing that i wont have to wonder what my service is gonna cost me for 4 more years its ZERO out of pocket. If you are looking at either one, trust me its the BMW that you want. Not that the MB is all bad mind you its just not as surefooted like the BMW when you push it.

Favorite Features

It's a diesel and not a hybrid. Most other things are industry standards so my favs can be found on most cars in the segment.

Suggested Improvements

Get a functional dual visor set-up like the MB. I'd like to open AND close the tailgate by the key and inside the vehicle. paddle shifting is where its at. AN 8 speed trans for better mileage even. LED lights on door hndls not on lic plate light? Six disc CD should be standard. Glove box bttn a joke
