Hey you - thanks for the insights. I had no idea about the differences being so big. I'm going to take my time but it seems clear that it is going to make sense to get out of my 4.8is. I love it but the costs outside of the extended warranty are a pain in the ass.

And beware of the brake squeal on the new X5/X6 Ms. It's makes my ears bleed. A lot of owners have wheel bearing issues that haven't been resolved. So far, 8000 miles, I have the brake squeal but no bearing issues.

Make sure you test drive first.

Good luck.

I hate the idea of giving up my vehicle - it's been incredible and I love driving it. But at some point I need to have more reliability and the extended warranty is excellent but doesn't cover 100%.

I drove the e70 m last week, a fully loaded one. Incredible ride, power that rivals my 911 turbo, well thought out. The dealer is putng on new tires and I hope to pick it up Monday.

Once you've driven one, its all you'll think about. I know that was true for me ☺

If I go pickup, it's got to haul more than a 1/2 ton can. The GMC/Chevy 3/4 and 1 tons are the nicest IMO, quiet, ride is decent for what it is and they have plenty of power. Now with over 900 lb/ft torque, enough to move a house. The highest level is all leather and great electronics, just about too nice to have for any work.

Update on the situation - bought another house and bought a pickup, '17 F350 Dually, crew cab diesel (for general pickup duties plus hauling a future LUXE RV) and also bought out 1/2 interest in '11 BMW 535.

Too many vehicles, I am now looking to sell my amazing 4.8is as well as the 535. Hard to imagine not having it but I'm ready to upgrade to X5M or similar and once both are sold will pull the trigger. I'm starting to look at the X5M's (and a few others too) so I'll be ready to buy once I sell my other BMW's unless I find the right one and I'll get it right then.
