conflicted feelings abound
By joeshaffer on
Vehicle2004 BMW X5 4.8is AWD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 6A)
ReviewI was more excited to receive this vehicle than any
other. Now it is here I have very mixed feelings.
First off: Imola Red/Nav/Floor/Sirius/comfort
seats/Metal running +pedals/set of snow
tires (minnesota). Comfort seats are really great,
engine noise great, acceleration great. Navigation
hopeless; most user unfriendly system in existence.
You can NOT I-pod or bluetooth phone the 4.8is.
This 'truck' is great if you do not have a family or a
dog (but I do), two front passengers will be very
happy. Soon as you try to load anything of
substance you start to wonder why you spend 85K
(taxes inclded) on it. It is a completely impractical
SUV; REALLY think why you want this X5.
Best Featurescomfort seats, acceleration really fun, stability and lack of body roll, auto dimming mirrors, exterior appearance, panorama roof. You will find yourself at 90 mph easily and often. Thats without the performance tires on yet (I started with Snow) Do not try snow in performance tires. Seat heat
Worst Featurescup holders designed by complete moron, unacceptable for 85K vehicle sold in America, we love 20oz coffee not two small bottled waters. No notification if door is open while driving (really!), very little leg room in back seat, too high for Dog even with ramp; Can not I-Pod the 4.8is. NAV sucks
