I would stick with an X5.
Im not making it any easier but... I disagree that they drive about the same. It's a small but distinct difference. X6 has wider rear track, is a touch lighter, has a more raked windshield, lower CoG and the all important active rear diff (the only x5 with this is the M).

Were on our 2nd X5 (x4.8 sport w/20s) and we're leaning toward an x6 35i. It's an exclusive car (tons of X5s out there) we don't need all the space (only 1 child).

Good luck
