Very happy with X5 4.6is
By VA BMW Owner on


2002 BMW X5 4.6is AWD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


I have owned a number of BMWs (97 M3,
2000 M5, 2002 745i) and two X5s (2001
4.4i and 2002 4.6is). I liked the 4.4i
and I like the 4.6is even better. In
fact, I had a 2002 745i that was
incredibly unreliable, so I traded it
after six months for the 4.6is.
Although the X5 is less technologically
advanced, I don't regret the trade. The
X5 is far more comfortable, more
practical, less pretentious, and I
enjoy it more. With comfort or sport
seat options, the X5 has the most
comfortable driving position of any car
I've ever driven. It has been very
reliable so far.

Best Features

Very comfortable driving position, performance, solid build quality with virtually no squeaks or rattles.

Worst Features

**Sport seats should include the adjustable backs from the comfort seats: a perfect combination.** Better sound system, more deeply sculpted/comfortable rear seats (bench seats are too flat), more cargo room, X5 should lose about 500 lbs.
