Forums can scare you

I love these forums but as a new X5 owner it can be frightening. It seems like anything and everything can go wrong with these cars. I hope i bought the Ultimate Driving Machine and not the ultimate money pit...

Don't over think it bro. Keep in mind most people only post when there is a problem.
I don't know which engine you have, but owning a bmw id advise you read up as much as you can on issues so you can know as much about your car as you can.
It could be worse.. You could own a 745 like i did

+1 745 guy. Also, some people's problems are a non issue to others. Hope you are enjoying your vehicle.

I appreciate your advice. Any car can get expensive but why not look good while paying for it. I am very happy with my X. So happy i dont think i would own anything else but BMW. Their cabins are very beautiful and comfortable and the engine performance is awesome
