    2013 BMW X5 35i Xdrive

    After owning a BMW X5 back in 2003 and being rear ended at 90mph i was shown just how safe the BMW X5 was engineered. In any other vehicle im certain i would have been hospiltalized or even worse not be alive. So I made a decision last week and finally did it. Got myself a new 2013 BMW X5 35i all wheel drive twin turbo SAV. Its a blast to drive and handles like a sports car. I mainly purchased the vehicle for safety as me and my girlfreind are expecting a baby boy in april. Gas mileage is avergaing about 20mpg but for a 6,000lb vehicle thats not bad.

    Your X5 has the N55 motor which is a Single Turbo. They market it as Twin Power but its still just one turbo. Great SUV's... 2013 must of set you back a couple bucks.

    They market it as "Twin Power" because although it is a single turbo it is "twin scroll"
    I have a new x5 diesel and by fa it is the most badass thing I have ever driven. I LOVE it and am prob going to buy another this month when the holiday rebate comes out.

    Yeah buddy I live a sheltered life. I don't want to get in a pissing match about what I've owned or driven but for a daily driver I find the x5 diesel hard to beat. It's just an awesome vehicle in my opinion.

    I had a 05 (bought it new) POS would barely pull my quad trailer over the pass at 70. Traded it in for a trailblazer that pulled the trailer at 90 over the pass barely trying.
