Who has recently compared to M-class?

I'll do my own driving comparison of course, but am interested to hear thoughts regarding the 3.0si versus the M350.

I've driven the 3.0 and I'm probably OK with the hp and torque. It's a money issue for me and I'm trying to keep costs somewhat down on my next vehicle.

Take a long look at the '08 XC90 V8 sport. They have really improved it a ton!

here's a comparo thread. (http://www.x5world.com/x5-e70-forum/36380-bmw-x5-vs-mb-ml350.html)

Autozeitung did a comparo (http://autozeitung.de/online/index.php?render=83341) between ML500 and X5 4.8. There results:
First place: X5

In another comparo (http://autozeitung.de/online/render.php?render=41409) betwenn Audi Q7 3.0 TDI, BMW X5 3.0d and Mercedes ML 320 CDI the results were:
First place: X5
Second place: Q7
Third place: ML

the ml550 blows the doors off the 4.8- X5, i have the ml350 and love it the X5, the 3.0 was nice too but i prefered the styling on the ML, I GOT MORE FOR MY MONEY BUT LIKE THE SPORT PACKAGE ON THE X5. you get more for your money with the ml but the X5 is sportyer, it's just about preference, the decision is yours:thumbup:
