Then towards the end of the review, they all come around and admit how amazing of a vehicle this is in numbers both on paper and on the track! This vehicle is for a specific target market so I wish they would stop comparing it to the regular SUVs (including the regular X5 and X6) and question its existence. I don't remember hearing any whining when Porsche came out with the Cayenne Turbo or Turbo S, or the ML63 AMG. They both have several models; why did they need to develop one with monster power??

There are so many BMW haters out there, primarily people who don't belong to that target market and certainly can't afford one will only make pessimistic comments. I'm just glad these aren't the people in charge of making any decisions at BMW. Just report on the vehicle you're testing. Do your job and then get back in that Ford Taurus and go home...

I completely agree and could not have said it better myself - Ford Taurus, LOL.
