So far so good, no issues, but I do get nervous reading up on threads where the general consensus is that these models are problematic with a variety of issues. It's still under factory warranty until Feb 2014, but whether or not we'll keep it after then will depend on how reliable it is out of warranty.

As far as performance the 4.8i is great (though I never did test drive the 6 cylinder models so can't really compare)......the 4.8i is crazy on gas though, I'm lucky to get 200 miles out of a full tank!
Discussion is for the 4.8i*S*, effectively the X5M before there was one.
