Anybody owned an X5

Do you need such a BIG car?

 

We had a 523i touring years ago and thought about the X5 but when we test drove it the rear load space seemed smaller than the 5 series? 

 

What are your requirements for doors, space, mpg, performance, drive-train? What else is on your short list?

I quite fancy BIG if I'm going for a 4X4 type thing, otherwise something else 4WD, have an itch for a Subaru Impreza weirdly..  When the weather is bad round here the roads get water-logged, muddy and are generally in a poor state of repair to begin with, hence a big bruiser of a car to battle my way every morning :)

 

I don't really want a small, Japanese thing like the X-trail, CRV, etc etc.  Maybe the XC-90...?  

 

Budgeting to not spend that much, I don't see the point in spending loads of money on a car that gets abused in car parks and covered in mud and crap every day. So about £5-6k.

 Maybe one of those BIG Toyotas? They seem to last, judging by the Top Gear truck!

I'd certainly consider a Toyota Landcruiser, but they're bloody expensive even for ancient ones...mind you I guess thats in recognition of the fact they are pretty much bombproof and go on for ever.
