Want to first thank all the posters. I have been skulking around for a month and a lot of valuable comments and posts got me off the fence two weeks ago. I picked up a Baltic blue prestige. It was hard to say goodbye to the X5 but it has been worth it. The only bust is lack of space for cargo. Will be picking up a Thule or Yakima cargo box this weekend for those trips that need the space. Wish we had a flush mount hitch too. This extended member that LR is selling is not attractive. Paid a lot less than msrp and got free install on the roof rack in the price. I am thinking it was a good time to buy. Wondering about 325? T'is my plate# and was on my first BMW. thanks all for being helpfull!!! This is the best looking and most fun to drive car I have owned so far.
