#2193 of 2444 Current or 2013 X5?
Nov 29, 2011 (11:48 pm)
I've been making my mind to get 2012 X5 Sport Activity model. Test drove it last weekend, liked it but still felt my current MDX to have an edge on the type of ride which I found to be easier and as strong as X5. But definitely BMW has more pride of ownership, thus considering switch to an X5. Hoping I'll get used to the ride and all.
Just curious...does anybody know what kind of changes we can expect from 2013 X5. If I am not wrong, X5 is coming all new for 2013. Any ideas or sneak peeks? Thanks.

Can I ask where you got the X5 offer in Atlanta area? I'm also looking X5 3.5i and I just can get around -$4,500 offers from dealers.

I've been looking for a new SUV to replace my 2001 x5 v6. After trying Porsche v6, v8, and MDX, I decide to go with X5 again. The diesel wins me over all the other choices. Its very powerful and smooth.

BMW X5 Diesel
Ext: Alpine white
Int: Black Nevada lether
Dart Bamboo trim
Cold Weather Package
Sport Activity Package
Total MSRP as built: $67,325
my deal: $56,883 (include $1000 from BMW finance) in New Jersey

BMW usually runs 7 year model cycles which would mean a full redesign in 2014. Also BMW made some changes to the body for 2012.

#2200 of 2444 Production Timing
Dec 08, 2011 (1:52 pm)
I ordered the x5 diesel on November 23rd and bmwusa still says that production has not yet started. I was told I would have the car before Christmas. Is this length of a delay common? By when should it be in production? Can I still expect to get the car by Christmas?

I LOVE the diesel. I've had my 2012 X5 for a little over 6 weeks now, and have racked up almost 1200 miles. The gas mileage is amazing. I drive it to work 3 days a week at 45-50mph (commute of 25 miles roundtrip with very little traffic lights and no highway driving) and have been averaging 23mpg. On the weekends, I drive it in normal city conditions at 40-45mph (with normal traffic amount of traffic lights, stops, etc.) and have been averaging about 21-22mpg. In terms of highway driving, I took a weekend trip where I drove it on the highway at about 75-80mph (250 miles roundtrip) and averaged about 27-28mpg.
I have a fairly light foot. I don't accelerate hard off a green light.
I HAVE BEEN VERY HAPPY!!! You can't go wrong with the diesel!!!
