Im on my second one
By boop on


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


The first one I owned was better than
this one. In the 3 years I can't
imagine why there haven't been any
improvements....although it is hard to
improve, there are some minor
adjustments to be made. I think maybe
the tranni is slipping or just isn't as
responsive as it should be, may need
bigger trani. And there are blind spots
in the rear, if the mirrors aren't just
perfect.If you choose the navigation
system... and a 6 changer cd... the cd
cannot be put in the glove
compartment.... but has to be in the
rear.... most inconventent!

The back up beeping drives me crazy,
needs cut off switch that's not event
I just seem disappointed with it a bit.

Best Features

Excellent control in adverse weather conditions... and generally very fun to drive, even in a foot of snow! Holds the road beautifully. I have no fear of an accident, with all of the safety features & superior engineering, survival stats are high.

Worst Features

Fix the blind spots or mirrors, offer rear heated seats, & better cupholder positioning, NO ONSTAR? cell phones limited to their model only, not able to keep your plan, what's with that???
