The 4.4i and 4.6i are exceptioanlly fast but I think they are a novelty. While much bulkier and heavier that the 5-series sedans they are based on, there is hardly any useful cargo space and the tapered roofline at the rear really impedes how much cargo you can fit behind the rear seat. Also, I am not very impressed with the quality of the materials used for the interior. The X5 is assembled in the U.S. so I doubt that it's put together as well as other models manufactured in Germany. Bottom line. The X5 was BMW's attempt to cash in on the SUV bandwagon.

I'd rather have a 325xi all-wheel-drive wagon and it's substantially cheaper.

The X5 still gets a "cool" vote from me - mainly because of the manual equipped X5 3.0i.
