Mein Auto: 2012 X5 35d
As a follow up, I can tell you that on my planet (Earth), I do have some facts to back up my arguments...

According to Consumer Reports, the X5d is ranked among one of the "Most Satisfying" luxury SUV's to drive. The Cayenne and the Toureg are not. However, I can tell you that the Cayenne, Q7 and Toureg all have the distinction of being on the "Most Unreliable" list of SUV's. There are only six SUV's listed as most unreliable - the other three being two Ford's and a Caddy. The BMW X5, on the other hand, has "Average Reliability" and received CR "Recommended" status.

Based on that, I'd venture to say that the Toureg and it's ugly sisters are NOT better quality than the X5. Again, just my two cents based on the available data.
2014 F15 X5 sDrive 35i (Carbon Black / Ivory)

Gone but not forgotten:
2012 E70 X5 35d (Alpine White / Oyster)
2008 E60 535i (Black Sapphire / Natural Brown)
2006 E90 330i (Jet Black / Sand Beige)
