They should have been tuned by M but given a normal designation, like the later 850Ci's. Would have made everyone happy. Think X6 Type R

disgrace? BMW is a company and its goal is to make money. If the chief of consumer research at BMW decides that a pink hovercraft that runs on vegetables with a roundel on the hood will sell, they will sell it.

We should come to an accord agreeing to boo all M SUV'S we encounter.

i think we should all hold judgments (performance wise) til this thing hits the streets. i remember back on 6speed when the cayenne line was announced, everyone was "WTFing" especially with the turbo model. turned out that thing was actually a pretty decent performer and the looks of the cayenne seemed to grow on most people.

The looks of the Pre facelift Cayenne never grew on anybody. Just that they were so fast that nobody saw them enough to understand how ugly they truly were.

now if it towed more, and could tow my dirt bike trailer, I would be interested, but it's an SUV that you can do even less with than a normal version

DO NOT WANT
