I ordered a BMW... so I obviously feel the BMW X535d is a better value than the Cayenne V6 (I personally don't like the VW powerplant). While I like the Cayenne better, look where I put my money.

BTW, I spent the weekend with Porsche executives and engineers in Germany/Portugal (you don't want to know why, as you will all hate me). They asked me what SUV I finally ended up purchasing. I told them the X5 diesel... you could see them wince as they knew they would have had the sale had they offered a diesel in the States.
