Thats what worries me about the future of BMWs being turbo.

What were your thoughts in the low end torque of the X5M? It must have felt pretty massive coming from an M3
Low end torque? Yes, like a freight train. The vehicle is unbelievably quick. Yet it feels like a nimble elephant in the twisties. It still weighs 5000+ lbs! LOL!
