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 itís 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.
Car and Driver got Cayenne Turbo 0-60 3,5 sec. Cayenne Turbo S got 3,2 sec 0-60, which is X5 M Competition competitor.
