The engine is really there so you can have enough power for overtaking maneuvers and the like, not true performance.

Its very comfortable but it is boring to drive. If you're looking for a more performance and driving pleasure oriented vehicle, I'd agree that the X5M would be a more appropriate choice.

I've now ordered an X6M for myself and the wife will keep driving the GL550. I'd take an ///M over the ML63 any day of the week.
Nice and I see that your assessment of the ML 63 is the same as mine. The x5M/x6M provide a much more sporting experience. Enjoy your new car.
