Calling E70 owners

Are the rest of you as happy as I am? Just under 4000 miles on the odo and I'm amazed each and every time I drive her. She's gotten better or she's adjusted to my driving style. And to think how I disliked the E70 when it first came out. I didn't want a larger vehicle. I was so sure the handling would be compromised. How wrong I was.

Good job BMW.

L,

I wish your previous X5 was the 4.8is.. I'd love to know how you would compare the 4.8i to the E53 with the same engine..

I'm bored with my 750i, it's too much work to drive. Doesn't make power the way I'd like it to even though it has a huge engine..

I can't wait to get back into an X.

Sorry I can't help you B. I've never even driven a 4.6is or 4.8is E53. She does blow away the 4.4i.

Maybe you should test drive a B7, I hear they are giving them away....B's B, it has a ring to it.

It has been two weeks and 500 miles later Im so happy that I look for excuses to drive it everywhere. I enjoy the look on other people faces as I pass by. It is a pleasure every time I get in it. Love it.

I had a 2004 4.8is, and it was a great, awesome car. Honestly, my 4.8i seems just as fast as my 4.8is though.

The 4.8is only had 5hp more than the 2007/2008 X5 4.8i. The exhaust note was better on the 4.8is, but in general the E70 is better.

I still think the front end of the 2004-2006 X5 looked WAY better than the E70 does, but the E70 rear end looks WAY better than the 04-06 models.
