In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2004 BMW X5 4.8is. I take
viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this suv while
showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues
to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start
it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. I also take it for a brief
test drive and show how it is on the road. A thorough tour/review of this
suv designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
BTW there are many other features of the X5 I was not able to show such,

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.

2005 BMW X5 4.4L V8 Start Up & Rev With Exhaust View - 84K
2005 BMW X5 4.4i
This has a 4.4L V8 making 315 HP while paired to a 6 Speed Auto. So this
is a pretty decent combo.
I have never been much a fan of X5's of this generation. The smallest road
imperfection is made into a huge deal so the ride can become choppy. I find
that the vertical travel of the rear suspension is very short as the rear
makes this hoppy or Jouncy feeling which is very uncomfortable. The Seats
are very hard & more so in the back seat, so these can become very tiresome
on long drives.
If you like X5's, best go for the V8 version.
I have driven dozens of 2001-2006 X5 3.0i's. The 3.0i is one of BMW's best
engines but it's too underpowered to propel this small but heavy SUV. The
5 Speed Auto used in the 3.0i hasn't proven too reliable and it is very
clumsy. Sometimes shifts can be smooth, Hard, Abrupt, it's just

The 2011 BMW X5 ranks 12 out of 17 Luxury Midsize SUVs. This ranking is
based on our analysis of 67 published reviews and test drives of the BMW
X5, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
The BMW X5 continues to offer superior driving dynamics and a plush
interior. For 2011, new gasoline engines give it more power and better fuel
economy than before. Though it costs slightly less than the outgoing model,
it's still pricey for its class.
The refreshed 2011 X5 starts at $46,675, which is over $1,000 less than the
2010 model. However, that's still a lot compared to the X5's competitors --
especially when you consider that higher trims like the V8-powered
xDrive50i start at nearly $60,000. But if you value a sporty, luxurious
ride above all else, the price premium may be worth it. With an optional
third row and seating for seven, the X5 can even function as an upscale
"Exercise caution with the options list, and the X5 can still be had for a
reasonable price -- well, reasonable compared with the rest of the
luxury-SUV flock," writes Car and Driver. "And like its begotten offspring,
the X6, the X5 remains a surprisingly agile and entertaining way to
transport the family. The new, more powerful engines will only enhance its
Not only are the new engines more powerful, but they're expected to be much
more efficient. While the 2010 X5 had only an average base fuel economy
rating, the new model is expected to get two more miles per gallon in the
city and three more on the highway. That makes its estimated 17/25
city/highway rating one of the best in the entire luxury midsize class.
Another advantage the X5 enjoys over competitors is a standard xDrive
all-wheel drive system.
Other Luxury SUVs to Consider
Those who can do without German driving dynamics may want to consider the
more reasonably priced Acura MDX. It starts at around $4,400 less than the
X5 and comes with a spacious three-row interior and smooth handling. It
also gets a standard all-wheel drive system, but its fuel economy can't
compete with the X5's increased ratings.
The Lexus RX 350 is another good option because it will save you money and
even a little gas. It's one of the least expensive and best rated SUVs in
its class and boasts an 18/25 mpg rating. It doesn't offer a third-row
seat, but its cabin controls are more intuitive than those in both the
Acura and BMW. The real draw, however, is the RX's affordable price -- it
will save you around $9,000 as compared to the base X5.

In addition to slightly revised styling and two new gasoline engines, the
2011 BMW X5 comes with the latest version of BMW's iDrive system. It also

X5 Performance - 8.5 (Very Good)

better fuel economy. There's also a well-reviewed and more fuel-efficient
turbodiesel model. Read More
X5 Exterior - 7.9 (Good)
The 2011 BMW X5 has updated styling, but reviewers say the changes are so

X5 Interior - 8.1 (Very Good)
The 2011 X5 boasts available seating for seven and includes loads of
high-tech features. A major drawback is the X5's iDrive system (BMW's radio

despite the fact that BMW has updated it for this year. Read More
X5 Safety - NA
