Hyde, did you change the EQ to Eldorados settings? I found by lowering all the bands it really brought out the bass. Of course, not like an after market system but plenty adequate for my personal...

You really have to drive both of them to understand. I found the 35 sufficient but extremely civilized and dull (I felt the same way in a Cayenne S). The RRS Supercharged (though not nearly as fast...

Paddle shifters do not come on the 2012 sport or "m sport" models. You cant get them on an x5 unless you opt for an "X5m"

I had the 4.8i and the lag was unbearable. The new 50i is fantastic. Instant acceleration. Quite an improvement. I highly recommend driving one.

I've had both. I very much prefer both the looks and drive of the RRS but the overall experience (maintenance nightmare) makes it far less practical.

2nd X5 and no kids. 2 dogs are enough for me. I originally ordered a 550 M Sport and decided it was a bit mature for my outdoorsy life. The X5 is perfect!

My last 4.8 held a steady 11.5 mpg and went through 3 sets of tires in 40k miles. So far the new 50...

Thats how my Range Rover was. It never ended. This is exactly why I recommend OP buys a Mercedes or Land Rover next. Maybe then he will see that he is splitting hairs with BMW.

Did you lower this? It looks like it sits on the wheels SO nicely!

I feel like my 12 sits a bit higher than my old 08 w sport suspension. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.
