So we get the new BMW X5

2008 bmw x5

I always had many unkind words for the previous the BMW X5. It is driven by overspeeding yuppies, cannot go off-road and did not have a reason to exist. But for some reason, I was anticipating the delivery of the new X5 at my parking lot. There is something to be said about about a big 4WD that can outrun most “normal” cars on the road. And I just had to see the gadgetry that was advertised in the press releases.

Well, I am looking at it right now, and it doesn’t seem like the “miracle” vehicle that other “leading” magazines made it out to be. It looks a lot like the old one too. But it really does exude character, enough for me to stare at it for a whole minute after I got it. Normally I don’t bother for that long.

What do you think?
