How do you like the diesel?
The diesel has a lot of power and fuel mileage is pretty decent. 20 MPG city,
25 highway. BMW's parts availablility is unacceptable. I had a check engine light for 3 months waiting on an air temp. sensor. Now, I'm waiting on a fuel line heater that's been on back order for 1 month. I've thought about trading my X5 for the GX 460. I also have a LS 460. My BMW has been in the shop with more problems than I would have expected for only 4800 miles. I've had to get BMWNA involved in order to receive these back ordered parts. The BMW drives, handles and runs great. Just not reliable enough...
