I completely agree. Hybrid is way too expensive. The diesel is much more comparable priced except it does not have active anti-roll bar from their website. That's the key technology which makes cornering much more fun. It was the main reason why I removed Porsche out of equation.

Of course, Porsche is more expensive in Package than BMW. Their active anti-roll bar is $3.5k option alone and you have to add air suspension which is another $3.98k. Their air suspension system is far superior to BMW X5. It actually adjust heights of the car. Then again, I am not sure how important is height adjustment.

I can't wait to see what 2014 X5 looks like. Given the current trend in BMW, I don't believe I will regret my decision to get it early. Only time will tell.
