You are being "green" for the environment because it emits less CO² than any other X5 model (okay, the xDrive30d in the EU emits 3 g/km less, big deal).

Honestly, I don't understand why anyone gets the 3.0si model, maybe someone can explain this to me. Just my €0,02.

I waited two years for the diesel. The gas 3.0 didn't have enough power and the 4.8 uses too much fuel.
