another diesel to the family

Just go a 2011 bmw x5 diesel and I have to say I love the diesel power, I have the rv and the wifes car the only one that is not a diesel is my car but some day I want to go that route as well, The x5 is a 3.5L in line six with twin turbo and that thing makes really good power, 265HP and 425FT of torque, and that thing burns so clean that the inside of the exhaust tips dont even get dark they stay nice and shiny, I must say so far I love the vehicle it is great. Joe

They sure are nice! I have not driven a BMW diesel, but when my wife's MB R Class was in for service, my loaner was a MB diesel SUV. Plenty of pep and super quite!

Enjoy the new SUV.

right now I have 350 miles on it and a mix of highway and city I'm getting 21.5 mpg but when I reset on the highway at 70mph on cruise I was getting 27mpg, but as time goes I will be able to get a better idea, my bussiness partner as one as well and he as about 15,000 miles and he gets about 500 miles to the tank and it holds 22 gallons of fuel and that is a mix fo city and highway.

I never drove a MB but a MB tech told me that the BMW is faster then the MB.

I have the Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD diesel that they only made from 2006-2008 and get about 22 mpg. When my wife's minivan bites the dust in a few years, she will definitely get a VW Jetta TDI. Once I replace my pickup, we will be an all diesel family.

Now if diesel would just drop in price lower than unleaded like a few years ago, everything would be great!

BMW are the ultimate driving machines I own a 3 and 5 look at a 6 the other day $85,000 wife said two was enough. Haven't driven a diesel one yet but I bet it's great.
