    Feels Safe And Comfortable — The 20" low profile tires with wide tread help the ride comfort and do a good job of offsetting the otherwise rough ride of the X5 BMW Sport Package. Has more than enough power to go anywhere you need to go.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles great, looks sharp with great body lines.

    Cons: Sport package makes the ride a little stiff if there are no passengers and the road is not smooth.

    Very Good Car For A Family — This is not a car you would want to drive if your by yourself. It just to expensive on gas. It is however amazing if you have a huge family you can load up alot of kids and your wife with ease all in one trip. Handiiling is very smooth but feels heavy because of the car weight. Favorite feature of this car is the heated leather seats and heated steering wheel. This car is a Speed demon

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Engine is super strong! Love the sound of the car! Very roomy

    Cons: Fuel economy and maintaining that beast is expensive

    Mint Condition. — Not much stuff that i dislike literally none. But the insurance cost to maintain. Got a lot of great features heated leather, sunroof, automatic windows, oil needs to be change every 10,000 thousands miles, stop speed is 3 seconds. And many more great perks.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good fuel economy Handling, Capacity, Reliability.

    Cons: Maintenance Cost.

    Loved It!! — Will keep it as long I can afford the maintenance. Handling is exceptional and would like to see it in a bigger tires. Hate the auto ac but not always the case. Creeking sound under the car can't find the source.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Nice torque and power for the size and weight.

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Want To Always Drive A Bmw! — Like the fact it looks almost new, even at 8 years old. The paint reflects like a mirror, and the leather is soft and comfortable. Dealer's care is supreme, but not cheap. Dealer's service department looks as clean as a showroom.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: A pleasure to drive.  Deep metallic green paint is gorgeous.  Great looks, comfort, visibility, and reliability.  Synthetic oil; change only once a year.  Superior craftsmanship.

    Cons: Gas mileage could be better -- only gets 20 -21 mpg on highway; 15 in town.  Dealer replacement of altenator was costly.
