    Advice: Get this car ..if money is not an issue, go with the 4.6

    What a great car ....worth the extra money. If you are looking for an SUV, then you are better of with a Tahoe, The X5 stands for performance and luxuary ...once you test driv e this one, you will never go back.

    2002 BMW X5 - 3.0i (M5)

    Pros: Speed and Stability Control System

    Cons: Rear headrests a bit too high, could make parking a little difficult

    Advice: 3.0i model is great, not a lot of difference from the 4.4i

    Fun to drive! A 'no thinking' required vehicle, it does all the thinking for you! Maintenance checks are done automatically, tells you when it may be slippery outside, tilt mirror aids in parking, and don't forget the great acceleration speed and the super brake system! Also, it doesn't tilt when you turn corners like other SUVs because it has an advanced Stability Control system.

    2002 BMW X5 - 3.0i (M5)

    Pros: Interior look, feel and comfort

    Cons: Quirky problems that need dealer to fix

    Advice: get the 3.0. FAST enough. the 4.4 isn't worth $10k.

    Unbelievable ride! I am a Lexus SUV convert. Didn't think it could get any better. Well, I was wrong! This is like driving a sports car in an SUV body. Yes, I've had a few issues with minor 'defects' (NEVER had that with my Lexus's), but in the end, its a worthwhile tradeoff! The other wierd thing that I never thought could be fixed in any car that somehow BMW nailed, the sunroof on the X-5 is SILENT when fully open at any speed. Most sunroofs are noise makers that need to be closed to carry on a conversation. How do they do it???
