Like this review. They have good chemistry. Great to see my internal combination of coffee and fine line as well. Not sure I agree with the comment that the fine line stipe is old man trim though 😂

My favorite YouTube car review channel by far. That X5 didnít even have air suspension and they loved the ride. I saw a lot of things that annoy me about my X5 (temperamental kick to open, flaky CarPlay, and terrible lag with voice commands) and they also hit a lot of things I love (good looks, superb ride quality, distinct driving modes, sweet in line 6, heated arm rests, and the seats are super comfortable). Mine is also white/coffee so extra happy that they dug that color combo.

lol they said the X5 is better looking than the Cayenne and the grille is proportionate. They really want the pre-production review units from BMW, don't they? Sucking up on reviews is the best way to get dibs on review units. Being first to review new cars is the best way to get YouTube views. Endless cycle of B.S.

That said, i do like the X5 and I think it's the best all around SUV in its class.

I would agree with them, the cayenne looks pretty bulbous from the rear 3/4, not enough sharp creases for me and is too round for my taste. I also think the tailights are more boring. Having seen the x5 in person I think the grille looks great

Great unbiased review. I fell like X5 is less comfortable compared to X7.

That was a bit dramatic. I find the new drive system pretty easy to use. It took me about a day or two to get used to it. Never made me hate the car...

Seems like the only knock I've heard on the new X5 is the shitty steering.

My folks who've had multiple X5s didn't get into an F15 because it sucked to drive, and after a recent G05 loaner they had they won't be getting another one.

If BMW isn't going to provide a unique driving experience, one may as well buy another boring-to-drive crossover like the Q8 or RR Sport.

Just enjoying the entertainment value of the rant, off course I drive still good would argue mbux just as good, no longer the outright leader.

The faux agonising and ranting over perfectly coherent UI is cringeworthy.
