To me they all still feel very truckish, heavy. I liked my 05 X3 sport pack a lot more handling wise, even though it didn't have the outright speed. But in terms of handling, the model years before the big softening in 07 are excellent IMO. Plus the best throttle response in any non-M BMW if you can believe it.

Anyway, I prefer NA engines to turbocharged ones, so I would advise the OP to check out a mildly used X5 4.8is. In Estoril Blue or Imola Red if possible, with the bicolor interior.
