This is a good point, but it's valid for any luxury maker. You're probably not taking your brand-new Audi/Porsche/BMW/Mercedes/Lexus to an indie. It's going to the dealer.

That's awesome!

Hopefully they'll also upgrade the interior with LCD gauges and a leather wrapped dash. Audi/Porsche/Jag/Mercedes are all doing it.

SQ5 VS X3 35i any thoughts??

5 year/60k B2B warranty plus included maintenance (WITH brakes, wipers, etc)

For MY17, BMW is decreasing their included services down to 3 years/36k miles and not covering brakes anymore.

Rough comparison test of X5 in new Car and Driver

No VW/Audi owner is paying $2k at every maintenance interval for new brakes and brake fluid flushes. That's literally impossible unless you drive around with your parking brake on or go to a shady...

Rough comparison test of X5 in new Car and Driver

The burden of proof here is on you. Please provide proof that OEMs pay to win these tests or head to heads.

If you find concrete evidence (for C&D, MT, Edmunds, Automobile, etc), I have no...

I spent some time messing with the build-your-own and there's barely any price difference between a loaded diesel, 340hp, and 380hp. The price delta was like $500 between a loaded diesel and loaded...

That's incorrect. The US-built models were not allowed to do special-order colors. The closest we used to get were Priority 1 colors.

I'm glad BMW, at least, offers a spare option on the X5... even if they do force RFTs on us.

It was a no-brainer for $150


That being said, RFTs have improved by leaps and bounds over the...

Cayenne would probably place first, but Porsche always loads up their press cars. Would probably be like $100k :rofl:

Someone really needs to scan and post the article! :)

If an $87k RRS was in this test, they should've thrown in a Cayenne too.
