The tailgate on my '08 X3 rattles enough that you think its going to pop open. I have it "adjusted" nearly every dealer trip. Simply poor tolerance design.

FYI if you are planning on financing, the 1.9 for 60 months does not apply to the diesel.

Second FYI, the tax credit is exempt from AMT so that's nice.

First off you really have to option-up the Cayenne to make it palatable. Plus there just isn't as much space inside. If you want a Porsche buy a car, not an SUV. Just my opinion of course.
