My experience with the manual trans in my '94 325i is that 3000 RPM is almost nirvana. The car cruises at 70-ish doing 3000, and 85 pulls the needle to about 3500, and the car is utterly effortless at this speed.

Your X5 is as close to a truck as you will get in the North America market with a BMW logo on the hood.
