2002 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


My 6th BMW. Best feature: EASILY
the most comfortable ever for a a long
drive (lumbar support seats are
fantastic). Next, sedan handling and
performance. I've achieved a better
time than the 528i over my fav route of
hiways and country roads. Most annoying
feature: the AWFUL tinny noise when
shutting the door. Biggest SMALL
annoyance - unreliable warning LCD
icons e.g. is a breakdown imminent or
is it simply an icon fault (again).
Great fit & finish but qual of BMW
materials declines yearly (like
others). Best was my '85 325E. Still
luv 'em. I went to MB once(300 coupe).
Soulless - a big mistake. MB briefly
had my brain; BMW will always have my
heart. Cor

Best Features

The whole package. There could be more trunk space, but why spoil the styling? For someone who has raced, rallied and hugely enjoyed driving for so long, this is an excellent compromise to slide gracefully into a fun retirement. When they fix the X3 interior I'll switch for more fun

Worst Features

Kill the tinny noise when shutting the doors. More reliability on icon warnings. Have comp calculate 'distance to empty tank' on more than just the last few kms.Better suspension over potholes. Slightly larger glove compartment. Cheaper BMW 'pho
