Not even!

Other models have it if I recall, but the diesel gets the stupid "mpg" gauge instead.

I've idly thought a euro cluster might give me the temp gauge back....

It's stupid, like I need to know that I'm getting 5 MPG at takeoff (every time I take off). Other brands have that info on the system check steering wheel control without taking up precious real estate on the dash.

What I dislike is the frickin cruise control stick, I have gotten it mixed up with the turn signal numerous times. It is so awkward, and it was so much better on the X3 where the buttons are on the steering wheel.

Yep, just some little things like that BUT I can't wait for any reason to drive it again.

Will have to take some soon but it's your basic white on black, first for me. Recent black Avalanche, current black Lexus, traded blue Porsche, current dark green Chevy diesel mule. I need to be a silent owner at my local car wash. Rains almost every day in the Summer here. I have seen some really nice color combos on this forum, pics have been great.

Even on the Sport "M kit" the side rocker mouldings get in the way and get your trousers (pants) dirty "if your car is dirty that is

Give it a little time. I noticed this when I first got my X5 as well. Now with 5000 miles, they have loosened up and feel much better.

P.S. I'm 6'4.
