    Default 2011 BMW X5 or 2011 Porsche Cayenne?

    Hi guy's

    I been talking with Ryan at BMW Gallery on getting a new 2011 X5. When my 335i was in service, me and the wife had the X5 loner for couple days and we really liked it. The X5 i am looking at will have the M package and 20" wheels. This is what it will look like.



    Then just yesterday i went to see Malcolm at South centre fine cars, we test drove the new 2011 Porsche cayenne. I was not toooo crazy about the old Cayennes but the new ones are really nice. It drove pretty nice and smooth. The interior was awesome. They did a great job with the interior. But the look wise i am not too sure still.

    Here is the pic. of the Cayenne i am looking at.



    Both are identical in price. Both have their Pros and cons. If you guy's were to choose one, which would you go with?

    Also like to thank Ryan and Malcolm on here for the great service and help they have been. Very Great classy guy's to deal with.

    X5 is due for a redesign in 2013.

    There is also a new ML coming for 2012.

    2011 is the first year for the new Cayenne.

    Food for though.

    After talking to someone who was a Porsche technician, I would buy the X5 unless your made of money and can cover the possible expensive costs that could come up.

    Because X5s are much cheaper to repair

    Mostly cheaper, some of the parts for the Cayenne are outrageous when they fail.

    Given that you said you both liked the interior on the cayenne and made no mention on the X5, I'd be more inclined to suggest the cayenne.

    Lets face it, it's pretty darn nice.

    haha u fag...

    but seriously, I vote the X5. I LOVE mine, and its the exact one your looking at aswell. I was looking at the white vs black and opt'ed the black, but my god I think their so beautiful from all angles. I also checked out the porsche, and even though I think the front end is beautiful, the rest of the angles are IMO unattractive, esp the rear. reminds me of much cheaper SUVs.

    Get the BMW for sure, you wont regret it.

    If I was stuck between the 2, I'd go with the X5. The Cayenne is a great truck to drive and has a great interior but unless you have a huge preference for the Cayenne, it's not worth it imo. The repair costs on the Cayenne can eat you alive over a long enough timespan, so unless that risk is worth the driving experience, go with the X5.

    What time were you at SSFC? I was out in the Cayman around lunch yesterday.

    Also I sat in the Cayenne. I would totally rock that thing. Damned nice.

    Maybe you seen us there with Malcolm. I was there around 12:45. My wife is pregnant(due any day) and my daughter 7 was there also.

    We test drove the Dark purple(Eggplant) cayenne that thay had in the front.

    They are pretty nice cars, specially inside. The touch screen navigation, the dashboard and the buttons on the front were Very impressive, it is like a cockpit of a plane. Seats were very comfortable and soft. The only problem i might have with the cayenne is, it does not have much room as the X5 does.

    But i have couple weeks to decide here, so i will let you guy's know the outcome

    ^^ yup I remember seeing you. We had just took off on a test drive down McLeod around 1240 as I remember the wife bitching she was hungry. We were there talking to Martin near the front door. I was hanging out at the Boxster Spyder once we came back.

    I dunno about that Eggplant, I am a sucker for white, but overall I think the dealer and car is top notch.

    This is what we took out: http://twitpic.com/3z5464
