That's ridiculous too. I find most high end buyers like bitching about the price of gas just like everyone else. And I find I rather enjoy it when my 6 cylinder Porsche getting 19 mpg blows the doors off the Escalade in the next lane getting 12 mpg. It's a double win. And I'm not alone.
Well...BMW sold 40 000 X6 so i guess there are some who wants them ;-)
BTW have you test drive the X6?
If not i can tell you its like driving an 911 and the 911 its nice!
But the best part is that can i put a lot of stuff in my car to, got a sportcar with space!!!
This is an good example of "think outside the box"

Its importent to test things before i talk about them, otherwise i will just look jealous.
And yes i had an -05 911
Have a nice day!
