2008 BMW X5 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


This is my first BMW. I have driven 3,000 miles since purchase and have been impressed by build quality and technology. I was drawn to the X5 by its looks, both external and internal, and BMW Ultimate Service. I opted for 3.0 over 4.8 due to significant addtional cost of the V8 and a little better fuel economy. I also own a Mercedes GL450 which I prefer over the X5 if you really need or want a V8 SUV with a useable 3rd row for kids or for towing.

Best Features

BMW has the edge over Mercedes in technology department. The iDrive with Technology Package is terrific.

Worst Features

Seats... having trouble getting a comfortable postion set. In hindsight, I guess I would spend extra $ to get the Comfort seat option.
