Help? Time for a pair of new cars. What should I get?

I am going to be picking up 2 new cars over the next month or so. I will probably be getting rid of my 2004 X5.

So what should I get?

Im thinking 535i or maybe even the XI and maybe an E70 X5.
By the way when do the 08 E70s come out. If it is in sept im gonna wait. Is the current 5 series at the dealers an 07 or 08. I thought the 08s were out already. If not when do they hit the showrooms. \

My dealer told me that if I trade my 04 X5 for a 5 series they lower the money factor on a 5 series lease. but that promotion is only on the 5 series and not any other model. Has anyone else heard of this?

Does anyone here currently have a 535? If so how do you like it.

Last question, Will the proceed work on the 535 since it is the same motor as the 335. Maybe Sanguru knows the answer to this.

That jerk still has the M6. But I got over it.
The 2 cars I get have to be daily drivers and 4 doors. So the 6 series is out for now. I still have an M3 on order though for when I need to have some fun.

The '08 5-series has been out since a few months ago. I think the facelift is a welcome addition, and the LED (red) turn signals really shocked me the first time I saw them. Personally if I had the cash, I'd go for the 550i simply because, well, its the top of the line V8. But the 535i is a good choice too and I'm sure the dealership has a handful for test drive.

As for the E70, the '08s aren't out yet. I heartily recommend the 4.8i version if possible since that is the motor that provides satisfying thrust. The 3.0si.........well I think that'd work terrific on the X3 3.0si coupled with a manual.

How about a 7 series? A really sweet car, my uncle just picked up a AW 750, its gorgeous but for $83k I asked him why not just get a slightly used M5???
