Just bought a Monte Carlo blue x5m I own a r8 and 2011 7 series. But this car outperforms everything I own. MileAge is 5.5km/litre which is not bad for a suv that beats the 360 Modena. I think this vehicle deserves more Appreciation nd it's much cheaper than cayenne turbo. Its really fun...

It's only pointless and a waste of money when you can't afford it.....

If you can then by all means buy this thing and have fun with it!

This car or any car is pointless for people who cant afford it.

hell, a civic is pointless if you cant even afford food.

For everyone else this is another niche market just like any car.

I'd be happy with either an X5M or an X6M. Sure it's more power and size than most people need but that's part of the fun :)

your missing a point though an all wheel drive suv is going to fare better than a 2 wheel drive sports car in the rain any day. plus this has an extra 200hp on the porsche. put both in the dry and this thing wont look as impressive than you think

Thats only a 1s difference, and this is an suv!

no becuase the GT3 was also in the wet and it beat this thing by one second. Even then I think one second is misleading. They always say on the show had it been dry it would be about four seconds faster. I think the GT3 would pick up more time then the Bimmer. I think the wet proably affected the Gt3 more. i think it made the Bimmer look better than it really is.

If this does a 1:28.2 in th wet, at the TGT, could this be at the 996 GT3 level????

Mr sav  7 years ago  

yeah sure, suggesting buying 2 cars instead of 1? we have 5 month of snow, so buy m3 and then just park it in garage for half a year??? People stop being arogant. For example Top Gear always saying that diesle are best solution. But when its -20 diesle cars wont start ( exp Moscow ) or Us consumers, from your point of view we can also say that big stupid suv like Escalade are pointless, ( they are bad quality, shity of road capability, gas guzzlers ) also its impossible to park car like this in Europe, but for Usa its ok, cause parking is not a problem. I belive that marketing departament in Bmw did good job. Mb have Ml amg, Volkswagen have Cayenne turbo and Q7 v12. So why bmw cant create X5m, especially if it is better that all of above. No after promotion i'm lucky enough to afford this car, and believe me its awesome. I sold my m3 and i dont regret it, cause X5m is much better all-round car for our country.

im not so sure but a direct fuel injected 4.0 twin turbo charged inline6 can get a 520hp without so much lag...

this is where is the 570hp news came from...

I hear 520bhp and 500lb ft!! from a TwinTurbo V8. 570bhp is kinda overkill though, and suv's are really just big or different shaped cars.

It's a waste of money for the one who buys that sort of car, not for the BMW

In my opinion 600 ps would be great for Publicity even if it will hurts fuel consumption with only a bit of extra performance..


User avatar

Anonymous  7 years ago  

an extra 25ps for the m5 to 580ps is believable but some sources say that it will have 570hp & more torque.. even thought 570hp is around 580ps...

Its only a waste of money if BMW doesnt sell as many as they thought, but, they should have made a CSL, which my sources say there going too!! iz supposedly a even more hardcore than that GTS crap, 500bhp from a 4.5 i hear! but also a hefty pricetag!!

Sure people need SUV, but not this pointless X5M. It's a waste of power and money.

For the X6M money you can buy an M3 for nice weather and a less expensive SUV for snowy conditions, and probably more competent off-roader (Nissan?) So the X6M is pretty pointless..

+1

bann them all... SUV´s are useless gas guzzler ... the bigger the "sporty" SUV the small the not so sporty ***** of the driver :-p

Performance Suv as X5m, Ml63 and etc, are the best suited cars for countries with cold climate. we have cold winters (-20c) with a lot of snow, and we still want to buy 4wd high car like suv, but still want it to go fast, that why they are so popular in Russia and Kazakhstan. British people (top gear) saying that they are completly pointless, maybe for small and warm country like Britain. But for us they are obvious choice if u have money to afford them. Diesle will just freeze in this kinf of climate. And cars like m5 and etc, are real wheel drive, so no use at winter time. 911 r8 have all wheel drive but there are to low, so it wont be possible to park them in our countries cause we have pretty high road ''borders''

Cars like X5, X6, Cayenne, ML are not for serious off-roading. But they won't let you down when being off-road. The X5/X6 M will be bought by people who want to drive the best suv/sav out there.

All of these X5 and X6-Ms will be owned exclusively by very unpleasant and not very bright individuals (to say the least). It is big only to look intimidating and not for any kind of off roading (not with those 1 mm profile tires) or practical versatility. This car is solely for chauvinist russian gangsters.
