Lots of good feedback here...

Setting the obvious fuel bill aside... whats the upkeep like per year (or better still mileage) i.e. brakes, servicing etc.

Not sure the corporate plan is available on M cars here or on used? Which I'd have to be buying used to be honest.

I'd imagine the same story here... but you never know! They have a strange way of doing things here in Australia.

A few things have to happen before I can consider ownership first anyhow.. so I'm a good couple of years away from going shopping!

I bought a additional oil service plan to compliment the factory service which provides lifetime oil changes every 6 months. Tires go fast....about every 10k miles.

FUN!

I shot off an email to my dealer about this... see what he comes back with.

I am a Porsche guy through and through, I wanted a Cayenne S but couldnt justify the price once I got in the X5M. I already had a X5 4.8is and loved it but the X5M performs better, And is MUCH less than a Cayenne TT. I couldnt get Porsche to move ONE inch on price. I got a LOADED 2011 X5M for a song. 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!
