Cost difference is around $8k from what I was quoted with the ML being more expensive. The ML of course having more bells and whistles. The only ML550 I found had pretty much every option and was around $80-81k and while it drove a ton better than it's diesel counterpart, just not worth a good $25k more to me.
One thing for sure is that the ML350 Bluetec and Touareg Diesel will have much better resale value. All diesels have a better resale value. Hell, you have 2001 VW Golf diesels with 100K+ miles that go for about $10K and that car was originally new for 20K.
