But if money were no object, I'd have to take the PC Turbo over the X5. I also think I give the edge to the PC over the F15 in the looks department. If we were talking about the E70, it'd be a much harder choice for me.
Agree with PC Turbo, just saw one for 136K loaded.
Yesterday stop @ local RR dealer to look at the 2014 RR Sport, they have/ Paul Miller RR in NJ/ HSE version with V6 for MSRP 76.5K. Very good looking car i liked it more from outside, not impressed with interior
Now my IDEAL car will be RR sport with BMW F15 in Moca Leather inside and PC turbo V8

I love the look of the RRS, but bad it will turn out to be a POS

Cayenne...but...$$$$$$

We've had 2 X5s and now an X6 and I drive a 911. The BMWs handle better than their porsche equivalents (if you compare apples to apples) in the sense that the suspension settings are stiffer on BMWs for the most part.

I like the size of the Cayenne - not too big, but what sells me is that the ride is better (due to the softer suspensions) and the naturally aspirated V8, although not as fast is so responsive.

However, once money is factored in the cayenne looses because they are charging a huge premium for the steve McQueen/James Dean badge.

The GTS is incredible (although honestly a 5.0 X5 will take it easily).

I'd get a regular S with some nice options like the panoramic roof, the PDCC anti-roll suspension, sport rear diff, burmeister stereo - a lot of these options are rare as they are so expensive on top of the MSRP. Thats another point...your average BMW X5 or X6 is vastly better equipped than your average Cayenne.

Either way, you can't go wrong. But I suspect the new X5 is simply a revised version of the same recipe.
