    I browsed roadfly. Not many people has the 4.6is, would any of you recommend buying one used? A co-worker of mine is heading out to Kuwait for two years and wants to sell it. He's always had BMW's and has taken meticulous care of the thing, but I still want input from others.

    I owned one a few months ago. It's a great car (and personally, I liked it better than the Cayenne). The handling, for something its size, is astounding. Since it's your buddy's car, I assume you know its maintenance history (extremely important).

    this is slightly off topic but wasn't there a 4.8 made as well?

    Yeah there was. The 4.8i had a slight facia change and some minor changes here and there. The motor actually carried over to the newer model x5's. I was just considering the 4.6is because my my co-worker offering to selling it to me.

    Really? That's good to hear considering I was looking at a used Cayenne Turbo.
