Great driving experience, love this car and the reason I say car is because it handles more like a car than a 4X4. Smooth drive with clean gear changes. Plenty of room for the Kids and boot storage and bag loads of poke! Never had a problem with it as I regularly serviced it as you should... remember to do the Turbo filter each year as most people don't! Fuel efficient as long as you don't drive it like you stole it all the time, I was getting 35MPG however my mate was getting 50MPG with a £200 remap and had more power and torque also. Had one negative with the X5 and it is the same with any BMW, they are bad in the snow unless you use winter tyres.

Most expensive car to maintain that I have ever had, unreliable, a complete death trap in the snow and ice, absolutely no good on mucky ground, ridiculous fuel consumption, parts are way too expensive, other wise a nice driving vehicle.
