This kind of stuff kills me. What did you expect? Really.
I owned an X6M for two years and it was a great SUV but unlike like a few in this thread I use other SUVs as a comparison. It was definitely superior to my wifes X5, X3, Q7, and Cayenne S and my Cayenne S and GTS.
Complaining about an X6M not being as much fun as an M3 is like a 911 owner bitching that his Cayenne Turbo isn't nearly as exciting.

I know the X5M is faster, but stock vs stock the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 has a better exhaust note.

Just spent a day driving around my X5m in the snow. Hard to argue that a car that can drive in the snow with twin 6 month old boys in car seats, my wife in the passenger seat, and a trunk full of groceries,/double stroller/diaper bags yet runs a 12 sec 1/4 mile and beats a 335 around a race track is not special.

Sometimes i feel like im the only person who has a strong natural love for the X5M.
My biggest point is the thing handles so damn well! I actually prefer to roll in the X5M than the M3, that shit is so powerful, has instant power... makes my m3 look like a damn sloth.

I LOVE LE BMW X5M!

-signed yours truly,
biased X5M driver.

X5M is RACE CAR.

I too love the X5M. But you simply can't compare a SUV to a car. Totally different feel. The M performs great for an SUV. Sure it doesn't perform like a m3, that makes total sense...it does a lot of other great stuff!

I agree with op on exhaust note. You need o realise the more boost you run the quieter it gets.
