I very much enjoy driving this rig, it just goes down the road. It has almost 154,000, miles. This is part of what a review said about it. We, (car and driver) flogged a few x5s equipped with the system at bmw’s test track across the street from its factory in spartanburg, south carolina, where the x5 is built. Running water at strategic places on the track created conditions where all, some, or none of the wheels was able to get a grip. What we discovered was, well, nothing. The xdrive did its work with no discernible lag, noise, or effort. The x5 remained under control through all but the most moronic driving.
