2003 BMW X5 4.6is AWD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

After driving a 4.4i X5, I decided to
trade up to the 4.6is. I was
always "wowed" by the 4.4i, but the
4.6is with the 340 hp engine blew my
socks off. I think it's the best car
I've every owned (this my 4th BMW, so
that's saying alot!)

The interior design is very nice, and
comfotable yet gripping "sport" seats.

The thing handles like a M5.

And the wheels, oh the wheels, 20inch
5 stars. They make the car.


Best Features

The wheels, handling, and fly by the seat of your pants performance. The tuned exhaust also makes a throaty don't-mess-with-me rumble. Also, spring for the optional cargo load floor, it's the best $380 option you'll ever get. Makes those trips to Home Depot so much easier.


Worst Features

The brake dust on the beautiful wheels, the navigation system takes some time getting used to. The speed sensitive steering is also strange when you first drive it, but you quickly adjust.

Review

I love driving the X5. I've actually
had 2 of them and highly recommend
paying up for the 4.4. I had major
electrical problems with my first X5
that the dealership couldn't fix. The
second one (4.4) has been perfect. The
X5 has been recalled more than most
SUV's.


Best Features

Engine, solid feel, drives like a European sedan, great stereo, looks great


Worst Features

More cargo room, work out kinks in electrical

Review

Just an awesome driving and ownership
experience (first 4 years of
maintenance are included!). The ride is
amazing as is the zippy acceleration.
The interior is what you would expect
from a first class manufacturer.
Excellent styling and craftsmanship.
Just a joy to drive.


Best Features

Power, handling, smoothness, the very solid feel


Worst Features

Could use a little more room in the back and better gas milage (at the time of this review SF Bay Area premium gas is $2.45/gal, and you must use premium gas in the X5) Nonetheless, I highly recommend the 4.4i version of the X5.
