And just looking at the AMG, it just doesn't have that sporty appeal that I love about the X5M. It's all preference of course; but to me it's superior not only in performance but aesthetics as well.

But aren't our 1/4 mile times closer to 4.5s than 4.0s? And I think the base msrp is about $88k, right?
Car and Driver tested the X5M in the 2010 & 2012 and measaured 4.0 seconds both times. BMW says 4.5 seconds for 0-60mph, but they are usually conservative.
