Believe me, I've driven both and like them both (each in its own way) but this thread is not about comparing X5D to a Touareg TDI or a Q7 TDI. My comment was directed at the engine where BMW employs a last generation diesel engine and Touareg/Q7 has a better, more efficient new generation diesel engine. Just listen to the BMW's engine, it clatters like a Ford F250. BMW is due for a redesign and when that happens I am sure they will come up with a better solution then what they offer now but for right now VAG diesel wins.
