BMW X5, SUV
Oct 14, 2009 (9:06 pm)
"It's hard to imagine a more complete high-performance SUV package than the 2010 BMW X5 M. It set new records at the drag strip. It's as easy to drive as any normal X5, and steers and rides better than any previous example. Its 14 mpg average certainly will not earn you a medal for fuel efficiency, but it is the best figure in its immediate peer group. And while $86,000 is unquestionably a large sum of money, that price is at the very least "fair" when it's compared to those of its rivals — especially when you line up standard and optional equipment."

#1490 of 1508 2008 X5 4.8 Pricing Question
Feb 22, 2010 (9:42 am)
I've got a chance to pick up a 2008 4.8 with 6,600 miles for $46,000...
Car has tech, premium and sports package and comfort access. Carfax looks good - single owner who traded the car in for Benz G-Wagon....
Is this a good price?
#1493 of 1508 x5 suspension
Aug 31, 2010 (3:34 am)
I have a 2006 x5 4.4 and was having problems with the auto suspension level with the driver side being lower than the pass. I brought it to BMW service and they said the front tension struts, ball joints, and lower control arm bushings need to be replaced. They say it is due to normal wear and tear so it is not covered under the CPO warranty and will be $2,500. to fix. The vehicle has 51k miles on it. Has anyone else had to replace this due to normal wear and tear after 51k miles?

I have the same car with just shy of 100,000 and have not had this issue. Any chance you have another BMW dealer within driving distance to get a second opinion?
#1495 of 1508 2003 x5 3.0 or 4.4 to replace my 1996 landcrusier
Dec 30, 2010 (9:35 pm)
Hello all, this is my first post here. I've been looking at the BMW x5 for a few years now... I bought a 1996 landcruiser a few years ago. However my 4 wheeling days are over.... I've really built up the truck and I'm done.
I've had bmws in the past and I know that they need matienance regularly. I'm planning on spending about $18k. I live in colorado so I go snowboardig 4-5 times a year and moutain biking in the summer. So I have to traverse the dreaded i70. My cruiser does this at about 50mph and it strains and is uncomfy.
So wondering if the 3.0 will do this trek ok.
Also, does the 4.4 sit lower than the 3.0? I ask this because I would like to take some light trails for the biking I do. I wouldn't like to have the bottom get scrapped.
#1497 of 1508 2012 X5 35i "dual exhaust"
Jul 29, 2011 (9:15 am)
Does anyone know how the dual exhaust system on the 2012 X5 35i is supposed to work? It seems that only one exhaust tip functions and the other is for show? I must be wrong, right? Can anyone enlighten me?
#1498 of 1508 Keep my 2004 X5 for the long haul?
Aug 23, 2011 (6:49 pm)
I'm pushing 160K on my 2004 3.0 X5, it's had it's fair share of common issues over the years...but, what's ahead? I drive 30K a year and need "dependable", anyone out there north of 200K on their X5? Keep it or dump it?
