My Ride: getting a 330 ci
tough choice

think i would have to go with the m3. But if i am going to be driving people all over the place, I would def take the x5. For the price of the 4.6is, you should be deciding between that and the m5. If thats the case, m5 all the way !!!!

For the price of the X5 4.6is, I can have an E46 M3 and a Toyota Rav4 AWD.
