Lightbulb Quick! What is more rad? X3 or X5?

X5 all the way. It's a far higher quality car. The interior of an X3 is very cheap and un-bmw-ish.

Actually the interior cubic feet of space is slighty larger int he x3 then the x3. Dont ask me how but some program on tv said it was.

But back on topic the 4.8 X5 is the only x5 that should be bought. The 3.0 and 4.4 are slow and dont have good handeling.

I test drove both and I know I would opt for the x3 over the x5. The x3 felt like I was almost driving my 325. The x5 left a lot more to be desired in the driving experience.

BTW, the 4.8 x5 is retarded. It's too much power for that car if you ask me.

Uhh, yeah....X5 without a doubt.

The X5 3.0 is ok but better than the X3 3.0, the 4.4 is rockin'.....4.6 is rollin'....and 4.8...is da BOMB~!

Well, if you had a FULLY loaded X3 3.0 with Nav. and EVERYTHING (including the entertainment package)....it will be considered ok.

4.8's just barely beat 325xi's. Ive tested it once. The 4.8's sounds awsome but they haveno cornering and they really are slow POS. Becides they have that stupid front wheel bearing recall which is a pain to do. For the price get a 03 540 and beat the 4.8's all day long.

I suppose I would like whichever one sustaines the most damage after I run one of each into a brick wall, better. BMW and SUV go together like pepper spray and eyes.
