Yeah, it was actually only about 4k more for a comparably equipped Q5, warranty is a year less then the Q5, but you do get maintenance. Since this is just my wife's DD, she wanted something small enough to park in compact spots at work, works perfectly for that, basically a XL AWD GTI. Plus it's one of the few NA market VWs still built in Germany.

Also have the Macan now to cross shop with the X3 and Q5, until you decide to start piling on the options and double the price.
