I was told it's not something that can be fixed. It annoys the crap out of me too. My F25 of the same year allowed you to sync them.

Huh? Guess we have different opinions on sluggish. A 98 Isuzu Rodeo is sluggish...an e70 35d is Not the least but sluggish...though not a 50i.

Good replies- like I said, it's a beautiful car and certainly drives very well. The loaner is a 2014 with 1,800 miles. No DHP or sports package- but I don't have that on my X5 either. It could...

X5 Interloper's thoughts on F series

I drive a 2013 X5 35D which I love. When it's in the shop, I always get a 528 or 535 loaner. I've driven them around town as well as an hour away for a weekend wedding. They are awesome cars-...

You guys are inspiring me. In addition to the X5 and RX, I have a Honda Element(toaster on wheels) that the Au pair drives. I can't wait to get rid of it in February and get a toy.

I had beige mats and switched to black as the beige ones showed scuff marks and my OCD couldn't handle it. I bought the BMW ones during one of the 25% off accessories sales.

2014 x3 v.s. 2013 x5

I traded my 13 28i for a 13 X35d. The X3 was fun but I wanted bigger and heavier. I probably would have loved the 35 but I feel the 35d drives better than my X3. It's torquey and corners great. ...
