I would just like to say that 330ciNJ is a retard. He came on bimmer.org trying to sound like a bad ass but ended up looking like a moron, and i just want to say that I appreciate everyone here not being as big of an idiot as he was and posting stupid flamebait on the bimmer web site.

ps Alot of my friends have an is300. I currently drive an x5 but think the is300 is a great car and wish they offered it with a 6 speed in the USA. I guess Ill get the new m3 instead. Anyway this is a great board, bye

hey dand I was thinking of posting a sorry note myself. I'd like to say sorry about that idiot who posted all that crap bout bimmers vs IS's. He not only posted the link on the X5 board but also to the M5 board. Hey dand are you in the bay area? Some IS300.net members and m coupe owners are gonna go the Speedring on the 27th for some kart racing. I'm planning to go and would like to see a few X5's there. I left a post on the x5 board. I'm paly x5er on there.

i heard the nsx will be in a v8, but thats all ive heard. also i heard when the x5m comes out, itll be the most powerful and fastest suv in the world. right now the merc ml55 holds that title.

Although the Porche Cayenne will be extremely fast the styling is kinda awkward and just doesn't seem to big enough to hold any cargo except for maybe a weekend bag or something. In any case I can't wait till the 4.6is comes out...I'm gonna try to convince my father to trade our current 3.0 in for it...WISH ME LUCK!!!!

the porsche's top cayenne will be a flat eight twin turbo. but it will still loose out to the X5M. looks kinda weird too

Although the X5 is a very nice looking WAGON, it is not a true SUV. Come on, it's a sport wagon.

Why would you want a fast SUV? As far as I'm concerned, SUV's are for going off-road (mud, hills, sand, rock, etc.) not just dirt roads. If my wife's Civic can go where your SUV can go, then it's not an SUV.

I know, I know, but it's JMHO.

yep, I do extremely hate SUV's, but for some reason, I do like the X5. Sits lower than the rest, darn fast for a big chunk of metal, and actually looks good when you put 18's on it.

I think people just look stupid driving down city streets in their big-azz SUVs 10-feet off the ground trying to drive like they're in a sports car. It's the city, people, who needs a big 4*4 like that!!!

To me, the x5 offers a good compromise between sports-car feel and SUV utility.
