Every mile

Just broke 51K on my 13 X5m. After a local bmw dealers "come drive an m" event where I drove (hard) a 700hp m5, a 400+ m4 and a nice stock m6. All new. Even though i got to do at least 2 full power slides and some very spirited on ramp accelerations with the m5, driving my 13 home I would'nt replace it with any new models yet.

The s63 engine is almost a miracle. Mine has downpipes and 21psi turbos with a sunroof. I drive it around town and on 4 350 mile trips a month right now. Every mile is precious and appreciated. Over 51k now, i just needed to reflect. I think this is one of bmw's best m cars ever built.

I had a 2012 550xi (N63 motor, not S63). I understand the sentiment, enjoyed mine a lot (except when fixing coolant & oil leaks)....
