Mein Auto: BMW X5 35d

Not that anyone asked, but I hold the Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTEC as the "best overall" seven-passenger SUV on today's market.

The GL is very nice and large. A little too big when comparing against BMW X5 or Cayenne.

One grip I had with the cayenne diesel is that the adaptive anti roll bar is not available for diesel. I tried their website numerous times and could not find it. The ML does have the option which made the ML more interesting. In the end I chose BMW because it has best combination of price and sporty feel.

After waiting for BMW X5 for 5 weeks, I know what I won't be able to wait for an European build SUV. It's just take too long.
