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.
The new F25 X3 3.5's are sleepers mid 5's 0-60 from the factory. Personally waiting on the DINAN tune (350hp 401ft/lbs) to be released.

When the new F15 X5 is released will consider it as well
