Having to worry about scratches everytime.

Frankly, the only thing annoying I've found is the climate fan which turns itself on even if you had it off. See recent thread.

Worries about scratches and dents are my big problem, I had a small dent last week, and that was driving me crazy, luckily i had it out and itís perfect again. This is my biggest concern, now Iím parking away from everyone.

If you look at the "big picture", there's no such thing.

I love this car and there's nothing else out there that I would rather drive than the X5.

My seat is creaking everytime I move it or hit a bump. The other thing is keeping my dark paint scratch free and clean!

When I push the rear hatch unlock button inside the car then shut the drivers door the cabin pressure causes the hatch to open a little more then close.

Having to release the seatbelt SLOWLY so I don't nick up that side panel. I LOVE everything else about the X5. This is the most satisfied I've ever felt about a new car purchase.

Mine is wierd, and borderline stupid. And I'll get over it.

But the window controls annoy me. Not only are they in the wrong place for a Bimmer(j/k), but I can't for the life of me role down the front windows on the first try...Almost every time, I first reach down towards the gear shifter, then switch hands and role down the rear windows, role them back up, then finally look down to find the front windows...I'm 6'2" and I sit with my knees nearly touching the dash and still, the front window switches seem almost out of reach.

Otherwise, I'm completely floored by this truck...
