Might Move In To My X5
By Eric on


2005 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


The X5 has been outstanding. I've got the sports pkg and performance pkg. The 4.4 engine is a must for this heavy, solid vehicle. Not only is it powerful, but it sounds great. I was looking for an SUV that acts like a sports car and this is it! My wife calls it a motorcycle on 4 wheels because of its performance (I ride sport bikes). I've only owned it for a few weeks and I just drive it around for no reason because it is so fun. I average around 17 mpg driving it hard. It actually gets the same gas mileage as my previous SUV that only had a 3.5L V6. This is my first BMW and I am hooked.

Best Features

Performance, handling, comfort, looks, engine sound. Oh yeah, I am 6'3" so I really like the thigh support in the sport seats.

Worst Features

Weak stereo system and near impossible after-market audio integration. Still not used to the console layout for things like cell phones, wallet, etc.
