Well, my reasons are mainly the want of Alpine White which 06 that I'm looking at has, getting tired on working on BMW V8 and I've always had more love for inline 6. Yes, it's slightly underpowered but this would be my wife's X5.

Also, question for those who's had both:

Which AWD you liked more? The older mechanical N125 such as in my 4.6is or the newer electronicaly controled ATC500 found in 06 I'm looking at.

TIA.
Can't go wrong with the M54. I am currently at 189,000 miles and headed for 300,000 miles with minimal maintenance.

Slightly underpowered as you point out but unless you are racing the car next to you, a solid decision.
