    Unless he wants to get another set of tires/wheels for winter....

    stock 20's on performance rubber, he'll crash within the first 5 minutes of snow...

    a different suspension would help a lot too

    At least if you're gonna buy the bia-suv, you're gonna buy the best version of it! The 4.6 is about the only x5 i can stand to see

    its quite good " fast " but not really a winter car ..
    it has shitty ground clearance and so on but its a huge step up from the cherooke

    well if he is happy with jeep like i said its a big step up

    with the x5 "4.6" u get much more power and better driving experience
    (handling)

    so its a good buy i guess if not he could check out the cayenne or wait a few months and he could get the WV touareg v10 engine :cool:

    4.4 then...

    4.6's are for richass yuppies in Florida or SoCal, they really arn't meant to be used in the snow or any inclement conditions other than rain...

    If he wants to go offroading, tell him to get the Range.

    If he wants luxury, power, and pimp factor, get the Bimmer.

    I drove one, but ONLY for like 2 miles delivering it back to the BMW dealership, but for those few minutes, I felt like a king. :)



    edit: the Range has plenty of luxury, power and prestige too. Just making that clear :) I guess it's just personal preference and what he wants to do with the damn thing

    he defioatly wont be offroading. but i assume the winter driving might be a concern of his since he is driving consstnatly everyday, no matter the weather. and his jeep was perfect in the snow.

    I've never been in a 4.6 or driven one, but I've been in the other X5's and the new RR and I'd have to agree...

    BMW designed the RR to be better than the X5, for the money it is for sure...

    I drove my cousins 4.6 and it has gobs of power, and the only way it gets driven in the snow is with a set of blizzaks, otherwise he'd never get it moving.

    If you're going with him, just check out the tires and any idiot can see they'll just be little sleds when they get on top of some snow, and I'm pretty sure they're isn't such a thing as winter rubber for wideass 20" SUV rims....
