Escalade starts at $73,000 cnd oh and look.. M3 coupe starts at $73,000 cnd.

From the investment point of view the M3 wins
From the performance point of view the M3 wins
For fuel economy the M3 wins
For practicality the M3 wins
For style and looks the M3 wins

You do the math.. the olny problem is you can't take the M3 up a rocky hill in the jungle but are you really gonna do that rideing on 22 inch chrome? i didn't think so.

If he want's to drive something expensive and impose his size on other people how about one of these??

best part is he can make money driving it and it comes with factory 22.5 inch rims too :D

GO BIG OR GO HOME!

can we help Marita convince her friend instead of what we all just did??*no-no* how bout a truck on 30 inchers??


BTW im not picking on ppl or anything....



Edit: if the Slade starts at CAN$73k, then taht makes it US$45,625(exchange rate of 1.6)looks like the Escalade seems better considering price.......

Marita,

After i got rid of my X5...i went to go look at Escalades also...and the thing i noticed considerably was... the Caddy is a great comfortable SUV... but thats about it...its big, bulky and rides like a boat.

On the other hand...the X5 corners awesome, brakes great, and the ride is alittle bit bumpier than the Caddy...but in the X5 you feel comfortable going 90mph + ...i wouldnt go past 70 in the caddy and feel secure/safe. The X5 still has the same feel as the BMW sedans have. I can trust whatever i decide to do while driving...it will listen to me...

"take control of the car...dont let the car control you"

hmm what about Honda CRV ? :D
personally I would go with Escalade, it's more roomy, more luxury, and it looks sick lowered and on 22"
also beacuase he is black it suits him

I like the X5 more just because its a bimmer, the reputation alone will convince me

but the caddy has what, about 63 more horses? I did 340-282

caddy or X5???

ummm.....both would look nice in black or white*th-up*
it's just that those colours would suit him more if he was gangsta type*smoke*
most colours look nice on the X5. Caddy.....just black or white.


just my 2 cents.

Marita
02-11-2002, 10:04 PM
well i havent talked to him...


i remember the escalade has 345hp...how much does the x5 have???
