2004 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


We bought our X5 9 days ago and
couldn't be happier. We test drove the
Acura MDX, Lexus RX, and Land Rover
Discovery, but nothing compared to the
comfort and luxury of the BMW. The
others are extremely fine autos, and
the Land Rover is just an off road
monster (we had quite a bit of fun at
the dealer's obstacle course), but the
BMW was just a better fit for us. Tons
of rear seat room, although we
could use a touch more room in the
cargo area once in a while. The engine
and trans are awesome. I can't imagine
why anyone would want to silence the I-
6 any more than it already is. You
just can't beat the sound of a BMW.

Best Features

Engine acoustics, smooth shifting trans, sports car like handling (in the SUV class at least), panoramic moonroof, xenon adaptive lights (these are a must have!), gas mileage not bad for a 5000 lb suv (23 mpg cruising at 80 on the turnpike)

Worst Features

A little more cargo room, make the trans lock up a little sooner (this would probably adversly affect the shifting smoothness)
