My Baby — Probably the most perfect car out there. Both quick and powerful, but also practical.

Pros: super fast, handles like a beast

Cons: burns gas like nobody's business

The Do-it-all Suv. — What I thought would be a great AWD replacement to the 540i has turned out to be pretty amazing but nothing really compares to an E39 with a V8 under the hood!

Pros: Everything

Cons: 18mpg

Nice Car But Cayenne Is Nicer — while I did not buy this car, I did research it extensively. It is a very nice car. Drove this car and the cayenne and found that the cayenne just seems to handle better - more of a car feel than the x5 which still feels a bit like a truck.

Ultimate Driving Machine — This SUV drives like a car. Gives you the safe feeling and will never let you down. It has power and comfort at all times. It is the perfect family car. Both back seats fold flat gives you a lot of cargo space. German Engineering always unquestionable..

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Dependable & Reliable.

Cons: none that I ever experienced

Steady Rollin' — Incredible handling and acceleration, especially considering this is a 2.5 ton vehicle! A little thirsty and requires premium fuel, but this is an absolute PLEASURE to drive. Long road trip in an X5? No problem! Little Rock to Cleveland was a smooth enjoyable trip. Maintenance can be costly, but it IS a BMW. Gas mileage isn't the greatest... I average about 19mpg in the city and 26mpg on the highway. Great comfortable vehicle. I love it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Basically everything

Cons: The only issue I really have with this car is the gas mileage and the cost of maintenance, but neither is a deal-breaker for me.

I am partial to BMWs for the handling and electronic "awareness" and inline 6 cylinder engine.

I did enjoy many of the features, but overall I prefer the more sporty feel of the X3. It definitely drove well for its size. Didn’t feel as large as it is, easy to drive. Read More
