I used to be able to do it, but that was so long ago. Now throw in the fact that the X is all wheel drive. I donít know how it will react if it gets out of control and I try to gather it back in. But on another note, I feel comfortable, totally safe and in control of the X5 at 100 mph. I donít feel comfortable in my ford or camry at that speed. When the X5 is at 100 mph, it doesnít even feel like it. It is so well behaved. Come to think of it most newer cars, especially German and Japanese luxury cars, you dont even realize you are doing 80 or 90 mph until you look at the speedo.

Point taken.
