    Default Mama got a new ride

    Mrs. CarDudes is very happy this morning. She is cruising a new 2011 BMW X5 xDrive35d. It's BMW's diesel power plant that is an inline 6 cylinder, 3.0 liter twin turbo with Bosch's common-rail direct fuel injection, 16.5:1 compression. It has an impressive 425 ft lbs of torque which peaks between 1750 and 2200 rpm, a very usable range. Not that my wife cared about any of that but I did. Now we have a great smaller 7 passenger family vehicle so we don't have to roll the Excursion every time there are more than 5 passengers. Not to mention, it can splash the boat if we really needed it to.

    MPG's rated at 19/25. Gives it a 500 plus range on a single tank of fuel plus the power to pull the Howard just down to the ramp. I wouldn't haul the boat long distance but it is just right for a couple miles around town.

    And they get upwards of 30 MPG on the road. I almost bought one, but the 530 is just too sweet. Enjoy.

    If you had the time you should add Purchase Consultant to your business.
    You know how to roll.

    Nice ride. I had no idea BMW made a diesel. Thanks for keeping us up to date with the review.

    BMW puts that same diesel in the 5 and 3 series cars. they offer huge "ECO" credits that are up to $4,500 making them the same if not less in price than the gas cars.

    There was a nice ECO Credit of $3500. Since I leased it, it actually made the lease payment cheaper than the 3.5L turbo charged gas version.

    In addition, since I own my own businesses, I am able to fully depreciate the vehicle this year (100%) with the current Sec 179 tax provision. Almost any vehicle with a minimum GVWR of 6000lbs qualifies. That will work out nicely on the 2010 Tax return.
