hi, I'm thinking of getting a used X5 2001 to 2005 for under $28K. does anyone have any advice on which year I should stay away from (most problems)? I like the 2004 model with the new front headlights, it looks like some 04 have the silver grill like the 05 model. thank you

There was a mild freshening in 2003 IIRC, that added the angel eye headlights. Other than that, especially if you opt for the inline 6 version, there is not a lot of mechanical difference across the years. You might even find a very excellent 2001 (*cough*-look at my signature-*cough*) well below your price point.

I have an '01 4.4i that is going up for sale in the next month, if you are interested.

Also, other major update was the Nav "widescreen" which I believe happened in 2002/03 as well.
