How in the world did your friend get a lease of a 67k X5 for 817? How many years and miles per year? Money factor? Any incentives?

My first BMW was a black 325ci over a decade ago. Attracted dirt like that was its job. 10 years later I apparently didn't learn. Black Sapphire X5 also equally bad at hiding dirt. But man does it...

Completely agree on Cayenne buttons. Don't get that at all. Also don't get why the electronics in the RRS seem so dated. BMW's surround view camera absolutely blown away the POS RRS equivalent. The...

Combine the current front end with the old back end and it'd be perfect, in my opinion. In terms of looks, the RRS beats the X5 hands down. But the X5 drives much better and I personally like its...

Go Bucks!



If I had the 50i, I'm sure the power would be too intoxicating not to use. I already floor my 35i constantly. What's the point in driving a BMW if you don't drive it hard? Might as...

Good post, thanks for this. We've got an F15 X5, but the X6 continues to grow on me. I quite like the sporty look and sportier drive. I'd always thought it wouldn't do because of more limited space,...

F15 is not ugly

I don't get why so many people are critical of the F15s design. I see more and more on the road (now that I'm actually looking for them) and they look imposing and modern. Big upgrade in the front...

Mine had the logo and I told the dealer to remove it before I drove off the lot. Not an issue at all. In fact, they totally understood. They would do it for their own cars.

Didn't get any lines and don't really regret it. Luxury and x-line are only cosmetic changes that, in the case of x-line, look worse than stock. Only thing I would've added is upgraded wheels. The...
