    I think the previous one (the big 4 mufflers, not the smalls) looked a little meaner, I like mean looking!

    Yeah I lol, I just don't like beamers <IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    Of course more power is more fun. But it doesn't look like an SUV.
    It's a good car, really.
    Just lame <IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"></b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

  3. An extremely misguided and uneducated assumption, kiddo.

    This "car" as you so absent-mindedly put it, is on the contrary, a stunning piece of machinery. Have you ever driven the top-of-the-range X5 let alone ANY X5? Trust me, little compares to it in terms of comfort and speed in it's class range.

    You desperately need to gather some new material besides "Ugly Car" to start new threads. (I hope you appreciate constructive critisism)

    This car is ugly, simple as that. But thats not the reason its lame.

  7. Re: UGLY!!!!!!!

    by the way, i just wanted to point out that the X5 LeMans was NOT intended for production. It is quite old (Geneva last year) and it is tuned for track use, BMW plan to use it as a crowd-puller for motorsport events.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: UGLY!!!!!!!

    i think dat this SUV looks nice and it also performs better than a lot of other cars out there so i have to give props to BMW

    i'll stop there...

    I just dont like European cars McLaren Man, nothing really against BMW.
    Theres just something that makes them less attractive then American cars (to me anyway).

    Ok, go ahead flame me.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    heh. but one thing is a FACT and that is that BMW kicks ass!!!

    the X5 LeMans reached 194mph at some straightaway in germany. this was in Car and Driver when they introduced the Bugatti 16/4 Veyron.<!-- Signature -->

    The engine might have 700 bhp, but you all arent realizing where that 700 bhp is in the rev band. Off road experiences would probably suck because the torque band probably doesn't get above 200 lb*ft till 4000 rmp. That's just an estimate, but LeMans engines just aren't meant to operate at such low rmps.<!-- Signature -->

    Stupid machine compared to REAL SUV's. Put in racing seats, Stupid as hell. Motor Trend gives it a D in off road hadling. Looks cramped in there. Thumbs down man. The point of the SUV is to be a capable machine, plus be cofortable at the same time. I want to be a good host in my SUV to my freinds. An SUV should be able to perform well on the street. Yes the X5 does this. But it should be big, comfy, luxurious (not always needed) to. And if needed be able to perform off road. Also it should be courtious to the passengers. Able to take very long drives in one. This X5 is not made for long drives.

    Sorry X5 thumbs down. The King is Still the 2001-2002 Escalade (Wich Motor Trend Rated Higher than the X5) Big fat comfy seats, Heads up display, better fit and finish, more features and anemities, OnStar, and 2nd best handling (next to X5 only) and cheaper! Also I believe the Night Vision can be easily dropped in. No Compatition

    And yes luxury is still part of automotive enthusiasts. Ask the guys who go to see cars featuring Betley's or old 1928 Pakards. Luxury is a part of Automotive enthusiasm.<!-- Signature -->
