I think it has a lot of to do with the type of driving you do. Mine is weekend only, lots of short distance stop and go driving which makes it worse.

My guess the dealer didn't add the oil or didn't add enough. Every BMW i've own all burned some oil especially the turbo models. On my 2014 550 i've added 3 quarts of oil already with only 7-8k...

A 2014 equipped with the same options as your 2012 will drive better than your car. Heck a 2013 will drive better too since BMW seemed to have made many software updates in that model year as well....

The car looks lowered and has some type of exhaust on it so I would guess its tuned. Piggback tunes and even BMW's own press tune still has the speed limiter in place.

You should take a before and after video of the X5 with the exhaust.

I am sitting tight myself until next summer. Hopefully the rates will be better. There is no way i'm paying over 1K for a X5 35 when i could get an M5 for that kind of money.

I can't believe the X5 lease rates are so terrible. You can lease a 70K 535xi for around 650-750 and a 75K 550i for around 750-850. Meanwhile the same msrp X5's are leasing for about 1K based on...
