^^^Yup.... BMW is so conservative with their HP and performance specs that they are practically sandbagging to lure the competition into a smack down. This also separates the automotive press into who just compares vehicles by the spec sheet and who actually tests them.
Look at what the real world performance reports are with MB and Audi.

For example the Cayenne with optional Sports Chrono package is getting a real world 5.1 second 0-60mph by MT. What does the X5 40i with it’s base V6T engine get 0-60mph?????

The Cayenne Turbo real world performance comes in exactly the same as the X5 M50i real world performance by the automotive press that actually tested them. 3.8 seconds 0-60mph.

This begs the question of what the X5M will do with the inevitable comparison between the Cayenne Turbo and X5M??

BMW is always bringing a bigger gun to each gun fight in each comparison.
