Yup, needed the ground clearance for the snow drifts. Apparently trees are a foreign concept around here. I miss the northeast, there isn't a good corner within 50 miles of this place, so the only time I can even think of drifting is a snow covered parking lot. It is a good vehicle for what I need right now, but I really miss the E39. If they still made them, I would buy another.

I see you got a 50 X5 too. I am amazed I like it so much. With the AD I can go thru the northbound Yarmouth exit ramp nearly as fast as the m5. Doesn't drift as well tho.
2012 X5 50i
2008 M5 (missing it badly)
2004 330ix (former winter beater)
2003 M5 (traded with 103k, still working fine)
