A bit related, but can an old key be programmed to a new car? I have a third key from my trade in and it's not doing anything.

I'm pretty sure anthracite is just fancy speak for muted glossy black. So not totally shiny, but a glossy finish. That's what I've seen anyways for anything related to "anthracite finished."

I have the current one. No issues with reliability so far and it's loads better than the X5 it replaced.

Of course. I'm not saying the E70 is bad. It's just if I was given a choice, I wouldn't go for an older model.

It's like the new RR. I actually put a purchase on hold for a year just so I could...

It's all styling and features. Nothing to do with performance… well unless you consider different wheels to be a performance advantage.

I'd rather have a new model I can keep for years compared to an old model that's already outdated. If there are bugs... That's what warranty is for.

Never happened again. Also don't own the X5 anymore.

I don't even see the X5 and the Cayenne as the same level. The Cayenne can perform admirably both on-road and off. The X5 only does on-road. The amount of luxury in the Cayenne also surpasses the X5.
