Re: X5M Am I the only crazy one out there ?

Congrats! Alpine White is still my favorite color for the X5M.

I've moved to the 2013 X5M from a 2011 STi Hatch and the M is practical to me... but the MPG's are very impractical.

I laugh every time I tell somebody how many MPG's I get, I thought the STi was bad for a little hatch at Avg. 18mpg.

Had the M for about a month now and love it, a lot more fun and excitement than the STi.

I've driven '08&'13 Porsche Cayenne Turbo's and plenty of other sport cars, but for an everyday car the X5M I think is the best choice of performance and usability.

What mileage are you getting? I have no trouble getting 17 in mixed driving with periodic use of the fun button.
Love it for all of its amazing versatility.

I'm only getting about 12-14mpg on Premium gas all the time.

Maybe my driving involves too much throttle, but there is too much fun in that to save the mpgs

The driving experience and sitting up high in this beast is truly a unique experience.

What's funny is that coming from an X5 50i into the X5M you feel as though you are much lower. You are, a bit, but it feels almost as though you are in an M5 driving position in terms of height. I love it even though a subtle change from my prior.

It's all relative depending on where you come from.

My previous car was a '11 STi hatch, so the M sits a lot higher than that.

It is hilarious how fun it is to swap it into sport and push the M button. As if a totally different car appears instantly. The sound and the fury is just fantastic.
Practically impractical and could not have been a better choice.
