Mein Auto: ML320, X3 35i M, G8 GT
We were set on buying a Q5 Premium Plus S-Line and then to be thorough we drove a x35i M Sport and fell in love. There were several points in Audi's favor. I think it looked nicer, had a much richer and nicer looking interior, and was cheaper equipped how we wanted them. However the Audi was much less powerful, rode rougher with the S-Line 20" wheels and Summer tires, was louder, got worse sticker MPG, and none were anywhere to be found how we wanted them. Having owned an Audi (A6 2.7T 6-Spd Man) in the past, I wasn't looking forward to the assanine maintenance costs either.

I was smitten by the X3 and am now looking at potentially the next X5 when it comes out to replace my ML320 CDI. I don't love the current X5 as it seems a little out dated and porkier than it needs to be, but it is nicer than my ML320, just not nice enough to make the leap. The only thing I despise on the X3 is the stupid throttle. Why on earth do they do things like that? The throttle tip in is absolute garbage.
