Putting a tow package on an X5M? Why not put that money towards a P38 Rover as a 7th car that is actually designed to do that?

This isn't intended as a jab towards the X5M (if that is in fact what you're getting) but it just seems like that is the last thing in the world they had in mind when they designed the vehicle.

I saw a green P38 today. It ran a stop sign in a residential neighborhood.

I claimed it towed well... not stopped

In all seriousness, did you know the only vehicles (at time time) equipped with brakes on par with the P38 were supercars? When I had to buy new rotors for my old truck i was like these are huge (that's what she said about my multiple penii)

Bring it on YO! I'm just saying that I think it weird to spend a thousand bucks on a tow package for a performance oriented activity vehicle when you could put the same money towards a real truck designed to tow.

BTW, motorsports BMW is cool but this is gaudier than my car
