So, let's not waste time on-topic.

BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz ML AMG or Porsche Gayenne?

Prestige! But I always prefered the Ssangyong . If your going to bugger up an older Mercedes ML make it one of those.

It'll be interesting to see how that slighly longer front engine 911 they are making sells . They have been working on it since the beginning of time! Just tell the engineers to put away his calculator and start building a few .

I quite like the sports cars though, I mean they have had 40 years to make it right.

go and drive a Cayenne S or Turbo (on and off road) - it will definitely make you see past the looks.

Point taken - but why can't we have performance AND looks?

The X5 looks OK, and performs even better.........

Bangle's origami mangle? He has done nothing for BMW IMO. I watched his TED video on car design to try and better appreciate his designs, it was like having teeth pulled .

Ok, the facelift X5 looks fantastic, but do you think it performs better on or off road comapred to the Cayenne?

I reckon the interior of the Porsche is nicer than the X5 also.
