The new efficiency
The BMW X5 was among the first of a new breed of soft, luxury SUV’s. Its first generation saw the light of day just before the turn of the millennium with the second generation following in 2006. This third iteration was launched last year and we’ve just spent a week with the range-topping M50d.
The strange tragedy
A recurring theme in motoring journalism is that of taste. Opinions will always differ and my dream car may not arouse so much as a passing glance from you. Differing tastes seem to be linked mostly with a car’s design and the chief offender in this discipline appears to be the BMW X6.
The demented mystery
A few years ago I tested BMW’s 555 horsepower X5 M and concluded that its ostentatious power and price was only for the super wealthy, utterly demented and rock stars. Sad but true, when nothing else matters and only the memory remains, you too may want to park such a car in your heated garage.
