Will likely be buying out the lease on our E70 next year, unless something else comes along.

The Cayenne looks really nice, but no 3rd row option.

Wife doesn't like the looks of the new F15,...

Uhh yeah was gonna say.... Diesels generally aren't quite as rough on turbochargers because the exhaust gas temperatures are lower, but there's still plenty to go wrong. The biggest thing for diesels...

Never said you're not going to enjoy a 328d or a VW TDI. I think I enjoy driving our E70 X5d just as much as I enjoy driving my E93, but it's most certainly a different kind of fun. OP has neither...

Try an ad in Auto Trader or something like that. The last time I tried to sell a car on Craigslist I got virtually nowhere. It was my 2007 RAV4 Sport V6 4WD in 2011 or 2012, with 43k miles on it?...

No I don't know it, and these statements show that the diesel is definitely the correct choice for you. Me, in my E93, I hit redline just about every morning down an on-ramp here in the crammed DC...

If you're not going past 8/10ths then sure the 328d will be great for that - a spirited cruise through back road using the torque band. If you're going up to or past 8/10ths though, I'll still take...

425 ft-lbs of torque in our X5d make it an awesome car to fling around quickly in suburban traffic and "five minutes from the office" type of trips. I felt the same way about the 328d with...

Well when it comes down to it, the 328d "only" has 180hp pushing around a 3500lb car which isn't a whole lot. But it will get 50 mpg on the highway (EPA's internal documentation admits to...

Built in BT and speaker system is usable, but definitely works better with the windows up and with speeds down. Yeah I could imagine a BT earpiece would be much better!

So easy to get my 6'3" carcass in and out of the car in those tight spaces at the supermarket when there's no silly roof in the way!!

I would go with the D unless you have serious speed cravings, in which case I'd get the 550 or maybe an M3 if you can do with a bit less space.

The D has plenty of torque to push you back in the...

I was referring more to the no-Line 3ers that I've seen or have used the configurator for. They just don't look right to me.
