Just a comment about the X5 doors. They are the heaviest, most solid feeling doors since the old Mercedes of yore. They have GOT to be extremely safe in a side impact, God forbid.

My wife loves them too, even though she has to give that extra 'oomph' to shut 'em!

Yes, the doors are very heavy. I pity the fool who parks too close to my and my son opens the door too quickly. There is no way his 40 lb. body is going to stop it...

I definately feel safe when I close doors on my X5. :D
I wish my E46 doors feel like that....

Yeah, the 3'ers doors, at least the sedans', are tinny.

Interesting though, comparing the early E46 to later E46's, (I've had a 99 and now a 02), I swear they used to feel more solid. My 02 definitely has tinny doors.

My sentiments exactly.
