I bid thee farewell X5.
I'll never forget...

But I also appreciated...

And there you have it, goodbye at 37199 miles to the best handling automobile to have graced our driveway, when it wasn't in the shop of course. Your replacement definitely doesn't handle as well as you, nor does it feel as lively even with the two extra cylinders, but it can't possibly have as many problems as you did, you tempermental SOB. I will have to live vicariously through a friend's 2005 model with the updated X-drive system. If only she would throw it around a bit more. Make use of BMW's claim of, the Ultimate Driving Machine.

Things I remember well of the X5:
1) Coming up over that small hill and getting nailed by the stopwatch cop.

2) The 'meet me at the corner of maggie mo in 5' calls for the weekly (daily?) trips to Winners.

3) Badtz on the dash?
