BMW X5 4.8is--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran

http://www.SupercarNetwork.com An in-depth look at the BMW X5 4.8is, the original high-performance luxury sport utility. Courtesy of Midwest Auto Collection. Presented by Chris Moran. The 2005 BMW X5 4.8is is one of those vehicles. It rolls on 20s, has a bored-out V8 and a stiffened suspension holding it all up. On paper it's yet another argument that Americans will buy anything with a BMW badge on it, but on the road it's more fun than any SUV has a right to be. Displacing the Competition BMW borrowed a page from the Big Three school of high performance by upping the power of the X5 through increased displacement. The bump from 4.4 to 4.8 liters delivers 40 more horsepower and 26 additional pound-feet of torque for totals of 355 and 350, respectively. BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system works with a recalibrated six-speed automatic and a final drive ratio that's actually taller (3.9 vs. 4.1) than in the 4.4i to get the power to the ground. Throttle tip-in is ultraquick, with the slightest nudge of the pedal resulting in a thump from the Exhaust and a not-so-subtle leap forward. Lay into it a little harder and the 4.8 smoothes out and slows up as wind resistance and gravity begin to take their toll on the tall 2.5-ton vehicle. Its 0-to-60-mph time of 7 seconds and quarter-mile pass of 15.3 seconds make it one fast SUV, but both numbers are slower than those of any serious sport sedan in this BMW's $70K price range. Convincing Us One Corner at a Time Getting an SUV to go fast in a straight line is easy. Controlling one around a fast corner is the hard part. The standard X5 is good in this regard, but the 4.8is is better thanks to a sport-tuned air suspension; monster Michelin Diamari tires, sized 275/40 up front and 315/35 in back; and speed-sensitive variable assist steering (the standard system varies according to engine speed). With all four wheels getting power, ripping through turns requires nothing more than pitching it in, allowing it to take a set and then hammering the throttle down to pull it around. The steering is as precise as that of any BMW sedan, body roll is moderate and the massive tires cling like a high school girlfriend. The X5 4.8is clocked 62.3 mph through the slalom, a slightly higher speed than the Mercedes-Benz CLS500 sedan we ran the same day. The brakes are touchy, but the big 14-inch rotors stopped the 4.8 from 60 in just 116.1 feet, shorter than the CLS by a foot. Looking and Feeling the Part SUVs are purposeful, but rarely pretty. The X5 looks athletic and the 4.8is more so. In addition to big wheels and tires that give it a tough stance, the 4.8 gets titanium-colored grille work, shadowline window trim, extended side sills and a revised rear fascia highlighted by a pair of shadow chrome Exhaust tips. The 4.8is not only looks better, it feels and sounds better, too. Standard upgrades to the interior include eight-way sport seats, a nearly full-length sunroof and a thicker three-spoke steering wheel. There's no iDrive to make things complicated, and the cabin design has the simplicity that made 20th-century BMWs feel just right. The Alcantara-trimmed seats hold you in snugly without reminding you of every double cheeseburger you downed in the last six months. And speaking of meaty, the extra-thick steering wheel does as much to make the 4.8 feel sporty as any other upgrade on the spec chart. Cargo space is still meager, the CD changer is hard to get to and there's no third-row seat, but if those things are really that important to you, this is not your SUV.

2008 BMW X5 4.8i Jet Black
TThe letter "x" may be at the bottom of the alphabet, but the X5 is at top of BMW's sales as one of the best vehicles of its kind around. There are many reasons people love the X5, and once you sit in yours, you wont need to have anyone spell them out for you. Your new Jet Black 2008 BMW X5 4.8i with Premium Package, Tech Package, Sport Package, Rear Entertainment, Heated and Cooled Seats, Aerodynamic Kit, and Third Row will leave you breathless. It has several upgrades making it one of the most comfortable and nicest cars on the road! This great car has been treated well and is ready for you to take the wheel. While many other SUVs may have a few nice features in one area but are completely lacking in others, your new X5 4.8i is fully equipped and above the rest in every possible category. This vehicle has almost every option available from the factory. This is a one owner Carfax certified vehicle from beauitful sunny south Florida with no accident damage. There's so much more to love about this sport activity vehicle so let's take a closer look at your new 2008 BMW X5 4.8i. EXTERIOR: The exterior JET BLACK paint is in extraordinary shape, and makes the X5 look like it could pass for a new. Your friends will be amazed at not only the beauty of your vehicle, but also the amount of money you saved! Just take a look at the shapely curves. Thanks to the sport package, upgraded 20" Y-Spoke alloy wheels outfit the car for a very sporty look. Take a look at the front and back of the vehicle. The $1,200 Aerodynamic Kit provides a unique and even more aggressive look. It will make the X5 stand out from even other sport package vehicles. You'll also appreciate that the wheels are wrapped in Dunlop Runflat tires in good condition. With a 4.8 liter V8 xDrive All-Wheel Drive engine, the X5 has great power to get you up and moving. Thanks to its 350 horsepower engine with 350 lb-ft of torque, you'll never be at a loss for power. Adding a cool look and helping keep you visible and seeing well during the darkest nights are xenon adaptive automatic headlights with dynamic auto-leveling. Additionally, halogen fog lamps will provide help in even the worst weather. For even more protection against the elements, your power heated mirrors will eliminate distracting and troublesome condensation, the rain-sensing windshield wipers will automatically turn on when the clouds let loose, and your xDrive all-wheel drive will give you maneuverability even if road conditions get bad. There are also running boards to help make your ascent and descent easier. You'll love the BMW no-cost maintenance that comes as part of the active 4-year/50,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty good until April 2012. INTERIOR: The interior is outfitted in BLACK leather and upholstery and is in superb condition. The clean black interior is the perfect compliment to the sharp black exterior. This outstanding BMW smells clean and fresh and there are no unpleasant odors, whether from smoke or anything else. Accenting the leather is beautiful high gloss dark wood trim that flows throughout the vehicle. Your comfortable power sport front seats are in very nice condition, as are the rear seats, matching carpet and upholstery. The sport package power front seats are 20-way power adjustable for optimal comfort and support. The front perforated seats are heated and cooled so you can stay warm on those colder days and be cool when the temperature gets hot. Did we mention this great X5 also has a third row? The row can be folded down for additional trunk space or popped up for additional seating! The leather extends to the power tilt/telescopic steering wheel which features controls for audio and cruise control. The wheel is also heated! Just above the wheel at the windshield you will see a wonderfully convenient reflection: the Head-Up Display. It will allow you to see your speed, cruise control, and other information without ever having to take your eyes off the road. Take a look at the shifter. Just below it you'll see the sport button that allows you to switch the car into sport mode for even more aggressive handling and performance. The in-dash iDrive system features navigation to get you where you need to go so there will be no more need for Google Maps! The iDrive system also gives you easy access to the climate and entertainment. Let's talk about the upgraded premium sound system. It features High Definition AM/FM/Satellite radio with CD player, six-disc DVD changer, auxiliary audio input, USB port (for iPod integration), all pumping through 12 speakers with two subwoofers. When you shift into reverse, the back up camera and parking sensors will come up on the screen so you can have a great view of behind you for bump-free reversing and parking.

BMW X5 4x4 review - What Car?
Read the What Car? BMW X5 review http://bit.ly/x5kFNA Few big 4x4s drive as well as the BMW X5. It's more agile than such a big 4x4 has any right to be, with strong performance and good economy. The ride is a little firm over rough surfaces. The X5 looks expensive next to a Land Rover Discovery, and it's not as practical.
