One thing I've done today is go back and drive again the ML 350 and the X5 back to back on the same route and while I'm not a fan of the overly heavy BMW steering effort, the X5 just seems like a better truck all in all. Even with the rougher ride.
Did you try Texas Direct Auto? They are nearly always higher than Carmax.

Have you considered the Momentum is able to offer the higher trade due to the obscene MF? I suspect they might be "robbing peter to pay paul". Run the payments for both offers, add up the difference over 3 years, and I suspect that will be the same as the difference on your trade in, or at least pretty close.

As far as the ML vs. the X5, they are not even in the same league IMO - totally different cars for different audiences. If you like the ML, go drive the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and save yourself several thousand dollars. I'm actually not trying to be funny - the new Jeep is very nice and very similar to the ML.
