So, I am in the market for a used SUV. I don't ask advice on here too often, but I just want to know some peoples opinion on this vehicle below. My requirements are: V8 (Needs to be able to pull roughly 4,000lbs) Seating for family of four (SUV, it has this) Fully Loaded (I like leather, heated seats, Nav and Backup Cams) $20,000 limit (As long as I get $5,000 trade in on my car, which KBB says 6k-7k trade-in) I found this gem with a rare (for my area) M5 package, so it looks fucking BEAUTIFUL. Its a 2011 BMW X5 xDrive50i, fully loaded with a Twin Turbo V8, and 85,000 miles on it. It has 3 fender benders on the Carfax, it was a NYC vehicle since it came off the line, so fender benders and light cosmetic damage is fully expected to me. They are asking $16,000. Went and looked at the car, and it looks great. It has a small ding in it, and the premium wheels have a few pits from salted roads (which all my trucks I ever had with chrome/premium wheels also had, because I don't take care of my shit like I should). The body lines were all straight, all the doors opened/closed great, same with the hood. Exterior wise, I am perfectly fine with the way it looks. It's fucking beautiful. Thing drove like an absolute fucking champ. When the boost kicks in, my god, this thing is fucking awesome. Handles perfect, tires in great shape, and the overall feel was just plain ole awesome. It will definitely pull boat/ATV's and feel good doing it. Here, to me, is the kicker. I am not a "fancy" guy. I have always had "American made vehicles". Ford and Dodge my whole life. Parts and shit that went wrong were relatively cheap and were easy to fix, pretty inexpensive. I am not sure if I want to jump into something like this that will have higher maintenance costs, and potential larger downsides. We are financially stable and could afford it if something went south, but not 100% sure I want to risk something like this. What say ya'll Sherdoggers? Would you poor folk take the risk with a BMW? Have you rich folk who owned an X5 or any other BMW for that matter have good experiences with it? Side Note - Easily able to tune the CPU for another 90HP and more torgue. If I do get this and the first year goes well, I am tuning this bitch and probably getting exhaust, because I still feel like a lil kid inside when it comes to HP/speed and shit. And sure, I am poor.... TLDR - Should I buy a used BMW with 85,000 miles on it for $16,000, and let's discuss the risks involved.
