Mein Auto: BMW X5 50i M Performance
50 all the way, considering what you're coming from. I just left an S4, and couldn't have done the 35 without remorse; I suspect you'd feel the same. Yes, there's a theory that says the 35 is "fast enough for an SUV," but the X5 is so composed for the segment that the bigger engine makes sense (the bigger V8 in the Merc GL, for example, is pointless, unless you're towing). Every time I get to push my new toy, I'm amazed how quick and agile it is for its size (I've got M performance, adaptive drive, and active steer as well).
