BimmerFile Review: 2010 X5 M

This morning brings us a really well written and honest review of the X5 M, I won't say much more to ruin the article and let you read it for yourself to be the judge, but here is a select quote from BimmerFile's well written review of the X5 M

This article was suppose to be a thrashing of the X5 M as an overweight impostor to the hallowed M brand. That begs the question of how do you even measure what M is? The answer is likely personal but there are a few core ingredients that we can all agree on. Power, balance and precision. Thanks to the X5 M, the scale of which we measure those attributes has just shifted. Is it a true M based on tradition? Can a vehicle with all wheel drive, turbos and an automatic transmission be mentioned in the same breath as the E30 M3 or the original M Coupe? After 1,000 miles in seven days the answer is a little complicated, but during those few seconds in that corner it was nothing but pure joy in the most raw M way.
