What about the X5 ?

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 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

^ 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 ) .. 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..

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
