My Melbourne Red 2018 X5 M

I am a long admirer of "M", the most powerful letter in the world. While I was waiting for the M5 Sedan being redesigned, I chose to buy X5M 2018 model. I did the required research, met with my BMW well informed Sales Advisor and made the decision, having regard to the fact that the X5M is built in Spartanburg, BMW's largest and global manufacturing plant for X series and the M design engine on X5 model isn't being redesigned. I wanted a safe SUV with all the bells and whistles. I decided to take delivery of the car from the Performance Center in Spartanburg. That experience, along with the factory visit wherein I saw robots assembling X series in the assembly lines is simply an awesome experience. In the Performance Center, I drove X5M and literally touched and felt its power for ABS, DSC, off-road stability, etc. The SUV is an exhilarating combination of power and elegance. With 567 and 553 HP and torque, you have to be extremely careful to not step on the gas. It handles very well, is beautifully appointed and aesthetically awe inspiring. The breaking is admirable for the power and weight of the SUV. As noted in Edmunds review, in the Sports Plus config, the suspension is more stiff with less comfort on the wheel and when in low speed, acceleration requires more effort. Overall, it is the best value for money as the standard vehicle is fully loaded and you don't need to choose different options. Above all, the most important aspect is the exemplary service I received throughout the sales process from the Tom Bush Blanding Blvd, Jacksonville, FL dealership in working with me on the sale, and the superb service I received from Jorge Guardincerri, my Sales Advisor. Thanks a ton Tom Bush and Jorge. Greatly appreciated.

AMAZING SUV AND HANDS DOWN THE BEST ON THE MARKET FOR IN TOWN USE. Obviously not for off road, but its basically a sports car with the space of an SUV. You get the best of both worlds.

I picked up my 2018 X5M with 27k miles in April 2020. I was looking for a family sized SUV/wagon that was fast, fun, reliable and good looking. That list basically included Audi RS7, Porsche Panamera, BMW X5/6M. I don’t love the Cayenne, it’s just too plain looking for me. I picked up my car for $62,900 and the sticker in the truck had an original MsRP of $118,995. I paid just about half for a 1.5 year old car with a clean title. It was too good of a deal to pass up. I could not be happier. The truck is gorgeous in Donnington Gray over Silverstone interior with the staggered 21”. Car turns heads on looks alone. Upshifting from 2nd or 3rd gear at redline emits a ferocious bark that puts a smile on my face every time. This truck hauls my kids to soccer and hauls ass at the same time. It’s so quick, it’s hard to believe it weighs 5,300 pounds. The steering is accurate and adjustable, the throttle response is instantaneous in sport mode, the suspension is adjustable, thankfully. This car does 99% of what it’s supposed to do as good as almost anything else on the road or better. I can’t think of any other vehicle, short of a Lambo Urus that would check all the boxes the X5M does. One drive will convince you. I’m an M fan for life now. Wow, just wow. And those seats are amazing! Small quibbles, when I turn the car off, the garage door opener won’t function, so I have to pull in, click the button and then turn the car off. And why don’t the mirrors automatically fold in when parked. That bothers me because a car at this price point should. Bottom line, $118k is a ton of money to spend on a car, and even at that price is competing with cars twice it’s price, but depreciation is someone else’s problem and at $62k, nothing on the road comes close. This thing is a beast and will have a home in my garage for years to come.
