Well you know what, I have a E46 M3 myself for summer car, and yes you get the perks and you get the feeling of being surrounded by heavy metal, but when I have made my choice of investing in a Lexus LX 570 rather than a full load X5 with 90000 KM with EXTENDED WARRANTY for another 2 year selling for $33800, i still went with the LX 570 because i knew that I would be driving with "fear"...you know, the electrical problems, mechanical maybe, and i asked my mechanic that head gasket will leak is a common problem, the part is cheap for gasket but takes hrs of labour to install and stuff...so after driving my GX 470, i knew that this "new" LX 570 would be a dream ride...so i know i have to make monthly payments for my LX and not the X5 which i hate doing, but you know what...It is a Land Crusier + a Lexus Badge, so it is the best of the best, instead of being the middle which is X5, a 5 series jacked up...so think carefully if you want the perks or you want the perk with out the s but with high reliability and king of the road like driving...LX 570 =TANK...
