Hi everyone, just picked up a new '05 X5 4.4i on Saturday and I am loving it! Black on black with panoramic moonroof, conv. pack., winter pack. and much more... Had a '04 Touareg V8 (actually 2 of them, both lemons) and I couldn't put up with the service dept. and VWOA customer service inadequacies any longer. Traded in on this and got an awesome deal from Erhard BMW in Farmington, MI. The sales, service and managers were excellent with explaining there heritage and what they pride their delaership on... Service! Thats more like it. Even though I don't expect to be there often, I know there are times when stuff happens. The T-reg was in the shop 32days in 10 months, unacceptable! I also had considered the new XC90 V8, the only benefit there was 3rd row seats, everything else was :thumbdwn: compared to this X5!
