I have the M3, but just bought a X6 35d to tow the E36 with. I've always loved the X6, and am glad I have it. Its only two of us (most times 1) so the 4 seat option isn't a big deal. I love it, and if possible, would have got the M version, but the diesel will do, as I'll be driving to Sydney and Brisbane a fair bit (1000-2000 km's each way).

I think if you want it, go for it, who cares what others think.

Sorry I disagree, I like modified cars and love that Cayenne. I guess I prefer modded cars over stock ones. I agree the body kit on the Cayenne is a bit over the top but at $200k MSRP its too expensive, even the sales guy agreed it was $$$$.

The X6M in stock form is ok but with the right body kit from say Hamann, I think it looks very aggresive like a hunkered down turtle ready to take off
Let me see if I can find that picture from SEMA last year to show you.

Consider the upcoming Audi SQ5? Same motor as the current S4, V6 Supercharged.



Or hell, the Porsche Macan should be revealed soon as well.

Who cross-shops between a performance car and a SUV?

I don't think its weird. I'm kinda in the opposite boat. I have a 4.8i X5 that I love for the space. I want something faster though and for a bit was torn between the X5M and an M3. I need a truck bed and I miss that from my last vehicle. I've decided on an E90 and a truck. If I didn't need a truck for the bed though I probably would have ended up with the X5M. Some people want a utility vehicle that is still fun to drive and insanely fast.

I understand your need for more cargo space.
How about an E63 AMG wagon?

I second that motion and will repeat that i think the X6 looks like a dog doing his business:

I still like BOB MG's X6M.

And his 911 GT2 RS.

Please don't buy an X6. It will just encourage BMW to build more...

Wife says I'm a hoarder but I just believe in being "prepared" for any situation!

Anyways any X5M or X6M owners past or present?

I drove the X6M a while back and was mighty impressed with everything except the price tag. I loved the fact the newer ones can seat 5 instead of the stupid 4-seater arrangement!

What would you guys do?
I looked at the X6 and didn't like it as a family SUV. It's more of a crossover IMHO and butt ugly. The X5M is the best of all worlds for you coming from a M3 and your growing family. X5M is faster than the M3, more HP. But the mess will only get worst in a bigger vehicle.

Good Luck!

If you want sporty get a Cayenne.
If you want luxury get a Range Rover.
Don't compromise.

thanks for all the comments, I not in a rush to make a decision. Just wanted to hear m3 owners thoughts for now. Sadly there is no new cars I really want (at least now the ones I can realistically afford) My current stable covers all of life's necessities however our SUV's are boring and my wife's hybrid is too practical.

I keep looking at the GTR but deep down I know the car is too small for my needs. Exotics are fun but only seats are is definitely a big no no at this point in my life.

I drove the new Cayenne GTS, awesome ride and priced about same as the X5M and I think they are direct competitors right?
I had the same problem and ended up buying both the M3 and x5M. I considered the Cayenne GTS along with the ML63 AMG. The x5M was the most car for the money and much, much faster than the Cayenne GTS. I think the x5M is the ultimate bang for the buck in the high HP SUV club. It rivals the Cayenne Turbo S for about 50k less.

+1. X5M is no joke. Crazy amounts of bang for the buck.
