At the risk of starting a flame war, i must protest you dislike of us folks who own and drive an SUV. as the very happy owner of a 535 (my 6th bmw) and the happy owner and driver of an eddie bauer explorer, i find each is perfect for their intended use. no way could i haul mt cargo trailer of photo equipment, cruise a two track mountain road or plow thru thick snow on my commute with the bimmer....but nothing does beat the car for sheer driving enjoyment. i guess my point is that both have a place in my life because the both fill a need. and to be honest it is a nice change to just poke around like an old man in the truck! just my 02 cents worth.
if i had the cash i would trade the ford for an x5 in a heartbeat!
