    anybody tow with bmw x5?

    I currently tow skis with 02 gmc yukon (which is great) and I'd prefer to keep!

    My wife thinks she needs a new vehicle and might be interested in bmw x5. Does anybody currently tow with one of these? whats the good and bad on them? I would be looking at used 2005 or older, not the new model which is out of sight expensive.
    Thanks

    towing with a X5

    Dude it will tow just fine, I use a 2003 3.0 and itz fine. The kicker is that BMW is gonna hit you for 1K or so to install the tow hitch . The rear bumper has to be removed to install it properly
