I looked at the X5M but damn, it is one ugly bus!! Apart from that, I really don't think it's a good idea letting my leadfooted wife loose with 400+ kW!!
I initially thought the X5M is ugly too, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. You realise that the front is actually an X6 and not X5 (the lights)? The V8 isn't a bad car, but if I am going to get a X5, I am going to get a crazy powerful one.
Similarly, if I get ML, I will get the 63, or if I get the Cayenne, I will get the Turbo...unless the missus puts her foot down on such a crazy purchase.
