Case closed. I like it so much I drive it more than my 2009 911 S PDK!!!
Here in Australia, a Cayenne Turbo is about a $100K more than an X5M (mid to low $100k) in the same vintage (2010) totally out of the question..

Funny thing is about a month back I took a trip down to the Porsche centre enquired about and drove a Diesel Cayenne, lovely car and all...but it would be very hard to say its a cut above an X5, I personally like the way an X5 drives.

IMO if you want the whole Porsche experience, there is the 911.

I decided to wait out till the next generation X5 is unveiled and see if I like it or not...

used X5M's are pretty good buying right now!
