Too bad you weren't with me you would have enjoyed my manuevers. Let just say he was a distant blip in my rearview mirror when I finally turned off that road.

Anyway, the X5M handles pretty well for such a heavy vehicle. I've been pushing it in clover leafs and there's a tendancy to understeer, but it's controllable. The bigger challenge is controlling the power under wet conditions; today the torque was transferred to the rear, then to the front, and then back to the rear as the Xer accelerated like a banshee.

2013 X5M ........ 2013 650xi ...... 2011 550xi (ret) 2011 335d (ret)
