Range rover is too expansive, same for Cayene( V6 is not real porche) so whatelse do we have option? RX350 is lower class, New GX looks ugly. LX is again too expansive.
That is why I ended up with x5. The x5 is for my wife, and she loves it. For me , Once a while, I check her car, and bring it back to dealer for repair or fix. So far, not major issues. I really like the handling of this x5.
I really didn't understand your post.

BMW X5 4.8 being fully loaded ( go to and add all packages there) costs 80 K, with M-package instead of Sport-package is around 83K. So that the car is not actually cheaper than Lexus LX570 or Cayenne -S with 4.8 engine or say Mercedes GL550. Another story that in BMW u may NOT to add all options and buy it say for 60K.

Now to the first post. I have 5-th sedan bought in 2006. I drove also X5 and has some experience. I also have Lexus LX470. In quality Lexus is not reachable, no breaks in 6 years ! With BMW I had a lot of problems. BUT-BUT-BUT dynamics of BMW worth those many breaks, japan cars are not even close in dynamics and enjoyment for a driver.
