Keep my X5 or my Mdx?

I am in a dilemma now on which one should I keep? MDX with 58k miles/ 93k km or X5 with 81k miles/ 130k km. both 2007 and both fully loaded top of the line. Entertainment package on both. 3.7 vs 4.8? V6 vs V8?

I love the drive of BMW but the realibility of MDX. Wifey wants a smaller car, I am thinking of a Mini Cooper Countryman All4.

What's your guys call if it's you with this situation?

hmm... i had a dilemma - a trophy wife that can barely cook scrambled eggs but every dude in 5 mile radius was drooling over her, or just run of the mill regular woman that feeds me, clothes me nicely, takes care of me and doesn't even ask for a thank you...


well... it all depends where in life you are at the moment!!!

those two cars are in totally different league - you know that the V8 is not same as a V6, and that BMW will not take care of you but will expect you take care of her... on the other hand... Acura is like your mom, always there for you...

After my 4.6 kicked the bucket, i went and got ANOTHER E53, 4.8... I guess, i am a show-off!!!

Seriously; That question on this site? Why not get a TOYOTA and call it a day?

If I had that decision I would be tempted to keep whichever is cheaper (or at least sell the more valuable one), but in the end I would keep the one that I enjoy more (driving +/- other frustrations and fun) because time is short so its pleasurable use should be maximized.
