Exceeds my expectations
By Dan Bray on


2003 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Awkward ergonomics compared to
Lexus...but that's no suprise.
Superior handeling to any Lexus I've
leased (LS 400, GS300 & SC430). More
solid build than Lexus. As comfortable
to drive as Lexus and Mercedes. Most
stylish and sophisticated SUV (Cayenne
& Mercedes SUVs close 2nd). Awkward &
noisy A/C. Worse-than-average SUV fuel
consumption. Amazing acceleration.
Excellent sound system, although quirky
controls. DVD Nav is inferior to
Lexus' DVD Nav. Smaller cargo room
doesn't bother me...and I'm an interior
designer. Always get compliments on
its styling.

Best Features

Performance & handeling. Exterior & interior styling. Very comfortable & quiet to drive. Great sound system. Awesome 20" wheels.

Worst Features

Rather do without park distance control..very annoying. Awkward & noisy A/C. Bad fuel consumption. 4.6 model is $70,000 loaded...$15,000 overpriced.
