For anyone reading this thread who does take their X5 into sand: The key is to turn OFF the traction control. We run ours on the beach fairly often, and you need some wheel slip to get through soft sand.

With traction control off, the X5 is no better, and no worse, than the XC=90 and Grand Cherokees we had previously.

Current BMW's:
2017 540i MSport
2016 428 GC MSport
2015 X1 28i xDrive
2015 X1 35i xDrive

Prior BMW's
