Still The Ultimate Driving Machine

2006 BMW X5 3.0i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Even though this vehicle is an SUV, it is still a great driving and great handling vehicle. Like all German made cars, this one is no different, over-engineered in every aspect mechanically. That being said however, some driver conveniences are overlooked in the process. Many cabin and driver functions are overly complex. The panoramic moon roof is awesome, but it does not close automatically when you turn off the ignition. The windshield washer always washes the headlights as well. Many controls are hard to find while driving, which causes you to take your eyes off the road. Brake dust is a BMW trait, and the wheels are very hard to keep clean. It's still a BMW and gets lots of oohs and ahhs

Best Features

Panoramic moon roof, sport steering responsiveness, cabin is roomy, built like a tank, and the airbags have airbags! As safe as you can get and still have fun driving.

Worst Features

Make more driver features customizable, let each radio station have its own sound settings (one setting fits all), moon roof needs to be automatically closed when the ignition is turned off.
