The BMW X5 has been named by CAP as the luxury used car of the decade. The residual value and whole life costs experts praised the X5 for setting a new benchmark and taking the 4x4 from the field and putting it on the motorway, but most of all making it feel like it has always belonged there. It was the effortless usability, faultless build quality and strong influence on the marketplace that wooed the judges.

Mike Hind, CAP Communications Manager, said: "For the used car buyer who does need a workhorse, with towing power and room for the whole familys holiday load, the 2000 2006 BMW X5 provides it. But it also offers the opportunity to leave the green wellingtons and the horse box at home and enjoy driving as a pleasure in itself."

Since its inception in 2000 the BMW X5 has been a popular choice with British car buyers, selling 64,063 since its launch. The first model to feature BMWs acclaimed xDrive four-wheel-drive system, the X5 has inspired other BMWs as well as created a new class of vehicle that has since been emulated by many other manufacturers.
The new beast. BMW M5.

Previous generation x5 is on my "possibilities" list when I pay off my ZHP. I'd like an x3, x5, or 4x4 Tacoma double-cab as my new daily driver, the ZHP will continue to be the "weekend" car...

In addition to my e90, I have a first gen X5 and I love it. BMW made this car feel as if it was carved from steel. Four years on and it drives like new.
