Bmw X5 4.8i (e70) — I got this SUV when it first came out back in the summer of 2007. Since it was the first round of production some glitches/problems are inevitable. This SUV has amazing handling, probably the best handling SUV out there. The acceleration is above average, but is no ML65 AMG or Cayenne GTS. The ride quality is can be adjusted between sport mode and normal, riding on 20's and having a stiffer suspension you expect to feel a bit more bumps on the road. Although I didn't go for the third row seat, I saw it at the dealership and I is absolutly useless unless you are 3 feet tall. The head up display is really neat, it shows speed, cruise control, and directions on the windshield; so that you can keep your eyes on the road. The rear camera is good during the day, showing turning lines which are super helpful. When it gets dark out, the camera becomes really blurry. In my mind, I think that the X5 has the nicest interior compared to its competitors and a monkey can figure out iDrive. Overall I really enjoy driving this SUV eventhough I can see the gas gauge go down every time I get excited.

Nice Sporty Suv — we have 3 kids and wanted to downsize our suv (used to have a 2004 toyota landcruiser). Looking for a smaller but nice handling SUV. This is just that. You can fit 3 kids in the car comfortably and the handling is just superb. Very nicely built car. Highly recommend. Having now owned the car for a few years, would update my perspective as follows: harsh ride - the X5 takes "sporty" to seriously, as a result the handling is very crisp but the ride is too harsh. On long drives it can actually be uncomfortable. I would also add that the idrive interface for controlling many aspects of the car is maddening. The 3rd row seats are kind of a joke if you have kids. Our kids are ages 8 to 11 and they barely fit. Our kids did not like this car as the room in the 3rd row seat was too cramped. Another thing that drove our kids crazy was the location of the DVD player. The second row could see the screen but not the 3rd row. So overall, after owning the car for a few years, I'd say, that it has great handing, a sporty drive and a 3rd row of seats, but.... the drive is too harsh in my opinion. For the money, I can think of many other luxury SUVs that have great handling but a more comfortable ride.

Pros

Power, Speed, Suspension, Braking, Engineering, AWD, Styling, Interior features, Sound System, HUD, Navigation, family and cargo space

Cons

the A/C does not get cold enough; air vent controls break easily and are crazy expensive to repair; iDrive is easy to use, but too simplistic vs. competitors

2007 Bmw X5 - Excellent, But Not Perfect — I traded in a 1991 Ford Explorer so you might laugh at the comparison -- there is none, obviously. This BMW X5 is a pure dream to drive. It's like it's always waiting to take off, which is frustrating when you're stuck in traffic. But when you hit open highway and can put this marvel to the test, it's fantastic. Go get one. Update: 2013.05.20 Have owned the X5 for 1.5 yrs now and while it is still very fun to drive and the build quality exceeds most other cars, a little of the shine has warn off with small wear and tear items costing far too much to repair. My CPO warrantly also just expired, under which I was able to get several key repairs done for almost free, so the next 6-12 months will be eye-opening on cost if anything goes wrong. Will update again in a year or less.

Pros

Very stylish looking car and once you are in you get a commanding view of the road. Start up and you immediately feel the power. Very comfortable. No shaking or vibrating at high speed like most cars I have driven in the past. Navigation is a major plus. Panoramic sunroof is simply breathtaking. BMW service people treat you like a king when you bring the car in. Would recommend some kind of warranty to help with repairs when necessary.

Cons

Fuel economy could have been better. But of course that was not the focus of cars in 2007. That said it is still better than my old fold.

Amazing Ride — There really isn't enough words to justify this car. The entire series seems to get better with every model. Just on performance alone the car beats any other in its class. Braking and handling makes it feel more of a sports car than a heavy SUV.

A Good Looking Sav — Not so fast as e39 M5 but much more space. Good choice for family. Top speed is enough but acceleration should be better. Maybe I must tune this car a little bit. Few more horsepower could make good for performance.

Awesome — A fantastic drivers car with exhilarating performance,tremendous handling, all the practicalities of an SUV, great build quality, loads of gadgetry, down side a bit heavy on the juice around town, but good on a long run. Overall a great fun drive with the practiclity of a safe family car.

Best Driving Suv — This SUV has excellent performance and drives like a dream. Great styling and the panoramic roof is a must have. Leather seats are comfortable and wear well. Easy to see out of and rear view camera makes it a breeze to park and backup.

Pros

Handling is second to none for an SUV. Great power for a normally aspirated SUV.  Luxurious. Love the heads up display.

Cons

Expensive service cost.

An Suv That Drives Like A Car. — Shockingly good handling when coupled with the adaptive suspension. Plenty of power from the 4.8L V8. Truly easy to live with on a day to day basis. Head up display option is a must! Will not buy another BMW or indeed another SUV without this feature. Have stopped looking at the speedo and very handy for the navigation as next turn instruction is also projected. Still irritatingly slow iDrive. Interiors is luxurious and use of soft plastic moulding. Pretty decent sound system. Bluetooth connectivity is not bad. Seating is comfortable with lots of adjustments for front seat. Perforated leather for heat and cool function. 3rd row seats folds into floor and really is OK for only small children. Cargo space is average.
