Where in NC are you located? I have a friend at Land Rover Cape Fear in Wilmington that will work with you. He has an E46 M3. I bought a RR from him before I for my M3. His name is Matt. Good guy. I also have a 4.8 X5 that the wife has as her DD. I love it. It would be a tough call. If you never plan on going off road, my humble opinion is the X5.

IMO It was much better than both cars, with a very nice layout inside. The only thing I hate about it, is where the keyhole is located. Very awkward for me.
Agreed.

I was shopping the RR Lux before we ended up with the 750. The wife actually originally was set on the RR. Thought the interior was better than the X5 and it drove more like a truck.

I then had a chance for some extended time in my close friend's 2012 Cayenne S. I thought it had a better interior and was a much better performer than either the X5 or RR.

I'm not sure it's comparable, as I'm up in Canada, but RR was a joke to deal with as far as negotiations go. Due to the fact it was what the wife wanted, I went in prepared to sign with any kind of real negotiation. Instead I got offers for after market options or wheels, etc....lol. Sent them an email letting them know we bought the 7 series instead a couple days later.

Too small and too much for what you get imo. Didn't drive it, but it is a long way from a mid to full-size SUV.

Funny. Was working with a guy at LR Charlotte that had an e46 m3. But ended up getting it from Another dealer. Ended up giving me 4200 off and a trunk mat. I think this is one of the best deals out there for them.

Definitely ask for Matt at LR Cape Fear. I had an e46 in 2004 when I bought my first Rover from him, a 4 year old Range Rover. Everyone there is very professional and my wife and I just ordered an LR4 from him.

Had an x5 35i an it was amazing if your looking for a wagon with a higher view point. Towed 5500 lbs better than my tundra 5.6 w/tow pack. I avg 22mpg 50/50hwy and st

But at last I realized that I don't like wagons so I traded in for a used g500. I'm keeping this truck for a long time. What I hated about rr besides the reliability is that their finanance and lease rates suck. Other wise I choose the rr all day long
