MJ uncool.

Take a BMW- a car that has traditionally been a nimble, solid, enjoyable vehicle to drive with good steering responses, rapid acceleration, strong brakes, and a fun nature (well, in a german sort of way)- and then totally muck it up.

The SUV has all the features that BMW didn't used to- and really shouldn't- stand for- high center of gravity, high kerb weight, not exactly sparking acceleration (325bhp and it can't crack under 7 for a 0-60? sad.) The X5 is almost as bad of a brand sellout as teh Cayenne is.

you expect great things from BMW, and the X5 doesn't deliver. The FX45 is the "BMW" of SUV's, and that's because it can't really do any SUV things. That's because the concept of a truck and a BMW don't mix, dumbasses, and they never will.

I'm not a BMW jerk (the only bimmer i like is the M Coupe in 315bhp form and the old 635CSi models, M1, and early M5's) but the X5 makes me mad every tiime i see one. THe X3 is less pointless, wait no it's more pointless... cause it's a bad bmw and a piss poor truck. Same with the X5.
