Lightbulb Is The X5 50 Msport SAV better than Porsche GTS

Let the comparisons begin!.....

Better bang for the buck..GTS can go into the 100k plus range
Better exhaust Note on X although i just heard the Cayenne's on youtube. Very impressive!
More torque 450 to 380
More cargo space and leg room
Better off road, Gts is so low its like a car.

I drove by one the other day full throttle and the porsche guy had his window down.
His expression was priceless

The porsche is a great truck , i think ill test drive one so i can know officially know
Im sure it handles better than the X

Exclamation

I changed the title to "is" the X5 better than the porsche instead of just stating that it is.
Seemed appropriate!

here we go again.

Some X5 owners seem very envious of the Cayenne. All I've been hearing recently is constant Cayenne bantering

I actually test drove the Cayenne GTS and Panamera GTS. I was leaning toward the Cayenne GTS when I compared it to the 5.0 with performance pack. However, when I realized that I could get an x5M for less than the Cayenne GTS that changed the scenario completely. I love the Cayenne GTS and I think it is better than the x5 in many ways. However, the x5M is the performance SUV bang for the buck and I voted with my wallet for that performance. Not to mention that I got about 10k off MSRP (including car club rebate) made the choice even easier.

I suspect most of you have checked out the X5M vs Cayenne Turbo thread. I posted this there and I suspect it applies here as well.

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho....php?p=7368716

I went through this decision recently and went with the X5 M Sport with performance package. I drive a new 991 C2s so my decision wasn't based on brand loyalty but price vs performance. Both SUVs are great and beyond the competition and I guess everyone will make their own choice and between the two there is not a bad choice.

I don't even see the X5 and the Cayenne as the same level. The Cayenne can perform admirably both on-road and off. The X5 only does on-road. The amount of luxury in the Cayenne also surpasses the X5.

For OP, yes, YOUR truck kicks every Cayenne's butt. Have a wonderful weekend. Time to move on out of the phallic stage and stop that penis envy of yours.

why? because it's a BMW and cheaper?



just because it's cheaper doesn't mean it's better.

similar argument with the Nissan GTR and 911 Turbo. I would buy 911 Turbo anyway over the GTR.

Well I'm a very, very poor and unemployed American living off of unemployment checks and food stamps. A BMW X5M is all I could afford...therefore it's better! :P

Stop discriminating against us poor people! Haha
