The key to picking the car I'm looking at is adaptive drive which is nearly impossible to find on a used X5.
Have you driven a 3.0si?

It's technically more powerful, but doesn't have the sloppy torque converter that they used to make the 3.0i feel a lot more powerful than it really was. You may be disappointed.
