May be looking for an X5 with a manual transmission, what do I need to know?
I just picked up a 330i and love it but now my wife says her freestyle is boring and wants to drive my car every day. She has had manual transmission cars since we dated (Passport, A4, MKV TDI) and says she misses driving something fun. We have some equity in the Freestyle and I've been thinking about selling it and buying something else that would be more "fun". The problem is there aren't many options when looking for something with comparable room to the Freestyle and a manual transmission. There are quite a few X5's on Autotrader with a MANual transmission though. How reliable are they? Are they fun?
It looks like the only X5 avalible with a stick is the 3.0 and I love the 3.0 in my 330i but does it have enough power for the larger X5? What kind of mpg's does it get?
