    There's definitely a place in this world for sporty SUVs, but sometimes they can be a bit excessive. You know the ones: plenty of power and performance, but not a whole lot of practicality to match. This is where the 2017 BMW X5 xDrive35i comes in. It may not offer the same degree of dynamism as...

    I have a 2008 X5 with adaptive drive so requires 220AMP alternator. Cheapest I can find online is around $700. Was wondering If I should get a voltage regular (~150) since I'm pretty sure the issue is with the regulator and not the alternator itself. Anyone ever tried replacing just the...

    I guess people are having problems seeing the difference between the next generation X5 and the future X7. A side-by-side seemed like the best idea to help illustrate the size and other differences between the two. Well, here I am, spent way too much time looking at these two and I have to say...
