View Full Version : What about the X5 ?

11-23-2004, 06:30 PM
my E31 850Ci is sold.. so i'm car-less.. (driving a Renault Coupe of my g/f)
even though.. still looking for a new car.. had some testdrives in the new Impreza but i dunno.. the interior is just the worst in any cars from 1999 till now i've been in.. Z4 and the 350Z is also out of the question..

But i've got a very nice price on a 2003 BMW X5 4.4i Executive with the Sports Package.. (older model though), fully loaded, and chiptuned to 300hp..

the problem is, i'm used to drive sportscar.. but the X5 is pretty fast.. 0-60 in under 7 seconds.. maybe with some options in the future i can reduce that.. allready drove it, it's really great.. but it's just NOT an sportscar..
i love it to death :D but i dunno, hope i don't regret that i've didn't bought a sportscar..

Any comments or so.. i still dunno.. though i'd trew it onto the board :)

her mileage is just 76k's..

got a bad pic of the car... it's in front of my old 850..

if ur gonna consider the X5 look at the 4.8is

11-23-2004, 06:43 PM
he man :D just bought a house with my g/f.. so a new 4.8 is waay of the menu :P

the 4.4is is second hand..

11-23-2004, 06:52 PM
i dunno how ur gonna go from an 8 series to a x5....unless ur expecting kids or something...i dunno in the end it comes down to ur priorities..do u really need all that space?

what about a 330ci?....m3?...G35?...Corvette?..

11-23-2004, 06:56 PM
yea then look at an E46 M3 used, should be about the same and in europe u get more power 10 more hp than what we get here in NA

11-23-2004, 07:00 PM
^ good point...

a 330ci is nice.. but i dunno.. it's soo much in comon' (i know the X5 also.. but i just love the looks and the brute-ness of it :D ) .. an M3 is still expensive.. there are cheap ones, but with a high mileage or just ****ed up by the previouw owner.... a G35 isn't available over here.. and a Corvette is just not my style..

11-23-2004, 07:02 PM
then how about an E36 M3 then mod it?

11-23-2004, 07:06 PM
then how about an E36 M3 then mod it?

no.. when it's gonna be a 3-serie.. i'm sure it's gonna be an E46.. but there are sooo much over here..

11-23-2004, 07:19 PM
I dunno why u sold the 850 man, but look into an older model 4.6is. I'm sure that's up your alley.

11-23-2004, 07:25 PM
yeh.. i know.. but the prob is.. those second hands 4.6 and 4.8 are still pretty expensive :(

11-23-2004, 08:07 PM
I think 4.4 is over 300 hp if the same engine form 745.....
lol you wanna rare car besides selling 850.....I dont know what to say....850s are truly pimp..

11-23-2004, 08:30 PM
the new 4.4i's (facelifted version) come with the same engine in the 745i and 545i which is 325hp, the older ones come with the same engine that was in the 740 and 540 which is only 290 hp i believe

11-23-2004, 10:26 PM
New 5series? 545?

11-24-2004, 02:08 AM
New 5series? 545?
ya...i dont think E39 had a 545...they had a 540...which was a 4.4 liter no?

11-24-2004, 10:10 AM
ya...i dont think E39 had a 545...they had a 540...which was a 4.4 liter no?

Yep...it was a 4.4L, up from the 4L from the E34.

I think he was suggesting the 545i as a next vehicle.

i'll say go for it bro !! *th-up*

for that price it's a killer car !! save the money.. don't buy a E46 or so...

go for the X5.. slam some big ass rims on.. ACS kit or so..

even if you're used to sports cars.. SUV's is one of those things... once you own one, you never go back to regular cars. For the price, I say go for it. BMW's are so common over there... especially 3-series... it's like having a Honda Civic here in North America. I don't know if you and your gf plan on having kids soon.. but the X5 would be good for that, and of course transporting all the new furniture you'll be buying and all that kind of stuff which comes with owning a house.

Well there ya go, that's another benefit... at least you can have proper sex in an X5.. unlike a sports car. :)

my dad's got a 2004 X5 4.4i and it frigan rocks!
The sound is amazing and it's damn fast for a truck.
I say get it.
You don't need the 4.8is.
If you want it to be as good as a 4.8, just get a chip, exhaust and a kit and that's still under the price of a 4.8is. *th-up*

11-24-2004, 08:30 PM
^ yep.. that's what i said.. get a full bodykit ACS or Hamann :D love those..


11-24-2004, 11:47 PM
Why not get a e39 540i...................

11-25-2004, 12:03 AM
i heard superchargers are avaliable to the x5's and cost bout 10 g's

11-25-2004, 12:21 AM
4.6IS!! May not take some sports cars in the turns, but shes got beef!! lots of it!

11-25-2004, 06:02 PM
I drove the X5 for like 2 hours today.. all i can say is that i just love it :D

always loved the good SUV's, Range Rover's and X5's..

it's a second hand 2003 BMW X5 4.4i including the whole Sport Package and is chiptuned to 480Nm and 300Hp :D it does 0-60 in like under 7 seconds..

it has only 39.000 km on it.. on autotrader there are 4.4i with 50k's for like €50.000..
i can get the car for €39.000 so it saves me alot..

i'm still thinking about it.. and about the whole kids and stuff.. not in the first 2 years i think.. but what the hell.. the X5 looks bad ass :cool:

11-25-2004, 11:15 PM
Go for the bad ass X5. They look awesome with 315 wide 20" in the back and 295 in the front. Mmmm. Deep dish and huge wheels....................
