I couldn't afford like the one above....that one in particular is 80k!!! However, seen a few used Cayenne D's for 39-40k. Aero kit is 15k but after speaking to a mate today he can get same kit for 8k. This would keep the price similar to X5, RRS and 535d.

However been looking at ScotChu's car again and again. More I see it, more I'd like one. But, to be keep it individual like his would cost a fortune bringing you into silly money and simply something I can't afford.

Getting confused like feck now....

Assume old shape Cayenne? I wouldn't bother, the new one is so much better and will only make the old shape look even more dated and devalue more quickly.

I have been in a new shape Cayenne Diesel, a very very nice place to be. Absolute quality interior, just like the Panamera and the new 991

Mmmm lovely car and would be a dream..however I need to be lot more realistic in what essentially is needed; flash/family car. Hence why I narrowed it down to 5er, RRS, x6 and Cayenne.

If funds allow in a year or so, I'd love to get into a GT-R or 997tt.

Have you driven an X6 ?
They are far far from driving like a bus.
Next you'll be saying the facelift A5 is a new model.

"admiring a proper BMW is it mate?!"

I really like the x6, it is a much younger cooler looking version of the x5 imo, catering to a different market..

Again, not to everyone's taste, but I'll be looking at them when I switch defo
