question re: 428 vs. 435 exhaust notes..

Hi all,

Been reading the forum regarding N20 vs. N55, but most focus on cost and power.

I know in my car enthusiast heart...

Totally agreed! +1

IMHO. No other SUV drives sportier than a BMW (since 2012 Porsche is now as sporty with the right options).

Cayenne...but...$$$$$$

We've had 2 X5s and now an X6 and I drive a 911. The BMWs handle better than their porsche equivalents (if you compare apples to apples) in the sense that the suspension settings are stiffer on BMWs...

Yes!! Thank you X3. BMW is still the ultimate

I have a 2.8X3 loaner (4cyl). No sport pack. What a great chassis. The ride vs. handling balance is great. Engine is strong and smooth.

Thanks for the replies

I'm not asking about simultaneous pairing w/both phones in the car. My question seems to have been answered. Current idrive will pair with only one phone for BT. I got it.

not apples to apples

The OP ponders Cayenne vs. BMW diesel.

Haven't driven Cayenne diesel, have seat time in the X5d

Cayenne is in another price bracket period. Think of them like 7 series SUVs.

I think software is your best option unless the 6 is on its way out.

Dinan gets 400 ft lbs. of torque out of the 3.5i. Amazing.

Good luck,

The retrofit requires removal of the headliner if I'm not mistaken. I wouldn't mind doing it once, but I don't want rails on year round. I'm looking into the Thule system that effectively clamps on...
