I completely got my azz handed to me courtesy of a BMW X5 50i. Holy crap those things move off the line. I think those things are over 500hp. It was cool to see the guy hammer it. Nice growl too! Turbo V8 ftw!

I was thinking X5 M at over 500hp. Thanks for the clarification.

I don't understand what happened. You mean to tell me that you lost to a vehicle that has 250 Horsepower more than you ? You lost getting off the line to a automatic, while you are shifting like a mad man ? You lost to a vehicle equipped with BMW Xdrive intelligent all-wheel drive vs the LSD front wheel drive system. OH - for the shame of it all. Next time - don't pee into the wind, OK ?

Lol, that X5 has the same engine as my BMW M550i more or less, the car FLIES. Feels like it has way more than 456 horsepower at times, and it probably does since BMW is notorious for being conservative with their horsepower ratings. I've had my share of having some fun with cars off the line needless to say ;)

I restrained myself and didn’t do a ricer flyby when he let off. I’m still impressed how quickly that thing got out of the hole.

You forgot to mention the $76,555 MSRP.
