The one part of the design that I really do like is the interior. Very elegant yet sporty.

Weird. The rear shot is the best shot. IMO.

A Carrera white with that interior above. TechArt pkg with their black/silver wheels.

Formula I think is that model wheel above.

They even said the panamera is the best 4 door sedan...and its not even the top of the line model.
And the quality and fit and finish is FAR and beyond any bmw.
Panamera Turbo just brings everything up another notch or two.
you must hate bmw too much. how the x6m is ugly as the aztec and the failnamera is good looking? failnamera is the ugliest/most hideous porsche ever...wait, ugliest luxury sedan ever made.

Stepping stone for posers??????????? I am guessing you are 19 or so.

Base price for the Panamera is $89,900.
That get's you 4 doors and an engine.

x6 bad from every angle? Like this is better looking?
http://www.hellaswebnews.com/images/foroi/Cayene_1.jpeg or http://www.cbautoimports.ca/images/c..._cayene_v8.jpg. It looks exactly like a raised failnerama

than the x6 here.
http://www.bmw.com/com/en/newvehicle...erior_side.jpg
http://images.dealer.com/nctd/09-x6-hero.jpg

If you think the cayenne is better looking, you need to get your eyes check asap.

LOL. the beetle looks deadly similar to any porsche. j/k

I don't like the 7, but it is not ugly as you made it to be. just a plain and boring car for the older crowd, that's all. How can this be ugly?
http://www.bmw-syria.com/me_dl/sy_en...troduction.jpg

In fact, I think the 7 is better looking than the failnemara

I think you're on crack. Or you simply lack the ability to include the term 'imo'.

I think the 7 series is an excellent design in terms of being elegant, understated, yet powerful.

I don't know anyone who thinks the Cayenne is "great looking but questionable from the rear". Nobody gives a shit about it, because the looks aren't out there nor are they ugly. It's just an angry looking fucker that can go fast. There's nothing polarizing about it.

Everyone I know thinks the X6 looks futuristic and unique. I think it's the best looking SUV on the market, but that's just me.

Silver or white GTS is my pick if ever in that market.


The Pan is obviously not for everyone.

I like it because it IS different. The S63/65 are great cars but are a dime a dozen in my area. The Maz is a great looking and sounding car but over priced and has/had to many bugaboos. IMO.

Everything is a personal opinion and not fact when it comes to looks. I don't think the X6 is the best looking SUV but it's neither the worst, the Panamera isn't the worst looking luxury car but it neither the prettiest. There is part of the Panamera that looks great and others not so much which I believe that's how most people see it.

It is one of the best handling luxury cars made, it's also one of the quickest and definitely is one of the most expensive and probably one of the best made if the rest of their products are anything to go by, these are all facts but the looks isn't a fact it's simply an opinion and everyone shouldn't get so up tight about his comments.

P.S.
I noticed shift@red made a comment on the 5series GT, I just for the laugh configed one of the BMW UK wedsite to the same spec as my XF, though it was only the 530d and not the same 535d that would have been the equivalent. Anyway my Jaguar came out at 45K were as the 530d GT totalled a huge 54K, 9K more expensive was even a shock to me.

I think this deems the X6-M useless. This is a 4 seater with a decent trunk and 4WD. We all know the ground clearance of the X6-M doesn't give it an advantage anywhere. No BMW road cars should be off the road, especially with those low profile tires and 20 inch wheels. Where the Panamera shines is in its package. It is basically the same price as the X6-M, but has MUCH less power yet performs similarly if not better in most of the tests. Sure, call it ugly, just like you guys call the GT-R ugly(At least I don't think it is lol). But this thing hauls ass even without twin turbos. The Panamera Turbo will be a beast. Now I'm not saying I don't like the X6-M, I would love one. But it seems as if Porsche came out with a sensible option.I believe this is basically what the X6-M would be if it were a car.

Are you forgetting that a lot of people buy into these cars simply for the increased driving position and better vantage point to see around.

I agree. And SUVs also have the advantage of not giving you a guilty feeling when you have to drive down an old dirt road with big water puddles, etc. They are also handy when you have to do light work on rental property and need to pack a shovel and a sapling in the cargo area and need to fold down the seats. Or when you need to jump a curb

Well frankly I wouldn't be doing that with a 85K motor, SUV or not.
