Yup. Even on my E70, if you hit the pedal around 80mph, it pulls pretty hard.

I've driven tons of 35i X5s over the years and they're slightly faster, but I'd pick the diesel every time...

Thats valid. The Japanese are horribly behind the curve these days. Lexus is acting like their 2.0T is something huge. Even Ford and Hyundai have had 2.0Ts for a few years now :rofl:

The diesel upcharge is something like $1,500 now. It was way more with the E70s.

I've noticed this too. The 12V port in the front and the two for the back seats wouldn't power my small air compressor, but the one in the trunk would.

Good ole Bosch. Trying to shift the blame off them. That's not a valid excuse IMO. They can't blame us and the fuel. It's out of our control. They need to adapt their components to US spec.

Plenty...

Damn. Feel better OP!

I got some serious food poisoning two months ago from bad sushi. I thought it was my appendix too. I can't even imagine how bad the pain must've been.

I'm not sure Jaguar is really a major step up to Maserati either. Their quality and fit/finish is pretty terrible as well.

Do you fill at the same diesel station with your X5 and as your VW TDI? Maybe that's the common denominator here.

I waited about 1.5 months for a DEF tank on my X5d in the spring time. They rotated me thru a bunch of different loaners, so it wasn't a big deal really.

Are BMW dealers using special "BMW-branded" alignment racks, or basically the same hardware that most competent 3rd party shops are using?

I was driving a rental LCI X3 recently with the NBT iDrive in it and the routing is just as bad as the CIC iDrives.

Longer MY16 cycle and doesn't the Euro market usually get the models first anyways? We probably won't see the G30 until late 2016 as a 2017 model.
