Bmw X5

Has anyone seen one of these up close, they are truly fantastic, there's this Dr where I work and he has a dark silver one and I see him drive it most day's,and he does drive it,the little 4.4L V8 sound's awsome, I think to myself this is the vehicle that suit's my need's, AWD,room to move and most of all, a V8, yes Ford did you hear, a V8,this is everything a Territory should be,well not quite but I think to myself this is truly my AWD vehicle, now if only the Territory came with a V8.

Re: Bmw X5

For some reason, I think the same engine sounded better in the Range Rover.. I don't know if the exhaust is slightly different, or just my imagination, but yes, the BMW 4.4 does sound sweet... I wonder how the 6.0 V12 X7 will sound?

Re: Bmw X5

On BMW's website they claim 0-100 in 7sec's for the 4.4L,with 235kw, that's not bad considering the weight of this vehicle, it would have to be over 2tonne.

Re: Bmw X5

The X5 might suit your needs but does it suit your budget?

Re: Bmw X5

The X5's look nice but i would much prefer a VW Touareg 4.9L V10 Turbo Diesel.

Re: Bmw X5

Re: Bmw X5

The Touareg are nice vechicals.. The V10 diesels are quick too, ~7.5 seconds to 100.. Top out at 225kmph!.

V6 isn't all that expensive either $67k.. V10 comes with almost everything you could want, 4 zone climate control, electric glass sunroof with blinds, xenon lights, sat nav, front and rear parking sensors, walnut inserts, 12 way power seats, colour screen, etc..

Pretty awesome Offroader.. Apparently pretty good off road too.. 67k for the V6 you might even be tempted to take it off road.

Re: Bmw X5

My brother has just been in the dilemma of what to buy - an X5 or Land Rover. The X5 was a bit too steep, so he looked at the X3 a little. He opted for a Landy in the end. I was really hoping he'd get the X5, they are sexxxy.
