I’m looking to lease so don’t care too much about reliability I suppose...I love all cars and mostly performance cars. I have to agree with most enthusiasts that the LX is too fat and slow, steers like a boat. I know the new LX600 will have more power but I hope it also has sharper steering. I personally own a 2011 and a 2012 Full size Ranger Rover Supercharged, same color too! The reason for having 2 is that the 2011's engine blew up and it's not worth the money to fix it. So it sits in storage as a parts car! Even with that, I bought another Supercharged because of how it drives. 510hp! If you drive them back to back, hands down the Rover. But factor in depreciation and reliability, the LX is the smart choice. I'm just stupid, I love punishment and cannot say no to HP. BMW is not cheap to own. An extended warranty (VSC) on a LX is a fourth of the price of a warranty on a BMW X5M. Statistically, that means the X5 will have 4 times the problems that the LX has. Or less problems but the problems costs 4 times more to fix. Still hard for me to say no to a X5 5.0M. I am a gluten for punishment. I've owned 39 car is the past 20 years. Other than the 19 Lexus cars, all others were not smart choices. But most were fast and fun!
