Uh, you mean I can drive it after we come out of the brewery?

Seriously, that would be cool. I am in Portland for at least the next 6 months, hopefully longer.

Yah...mebbe you should drag the missus along too. After all, it'll be HER car right? (plus it is my wife's car after all )

I'll have a litre of beer with that test drive and I'll let the missus drive my drunken ass home! Shall it be the Rogue? I'll drop you a note tomorrow. I feel like **** right now!

Good for you. You are definitely in the right path. But please, please, don't go with the Lexus. Trust me, you will regret if you do that. Now it's an easy one: Need more space - MDX. Otherwise, X5-6sp. If the X5 comes with the same ZF 6sp as my ZHP, it is definitely the Ultimate Driving SAV, period.

I can easily fit 4 guys and all golf bags in the X5. Everyone is more than comfortable all are 6' or taller.

Load them side to side and stacked 3 on the bottom and 1 on top of them. Pleanty of room for a cooler and all shoes....

If I needed more room, I'd have got the bigger truck, Navigator, Denali etc....

In the end get whatever makes you happy!

Exactly about the golf bags. I don't understand how you CAN'T fit four bags and crew aboard???
