5.0 vs 3.5 no comparison
By Chad on
2008 BMW X6 xDrive50i 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6A)
We test drove the 3.5 and loved the styling. The car handled and had acceptable acceleration but felt heavy. When looking at the weight, I knew that having the 5.0 engine would make all the difference in the world. Well when I went down to test drive itÖ words canít describe it. Many people say ďI donít get itĒÖ I can tell you, get behind the wheel and you ďWill Get It!Ē. I know itís not for everyone and honestly, that was a whole level beyond why I wanted it. In the three months Iíve had it, Iíve only seen 3 on the road. I canít count the FX, MLís, RXís, and Cayenneís. There is a sense of exclusivity that comes with owning one. If you donít like attention, donít by an X6.
400 horse power and active steering, oh my!
