Audi Q7 Diesel vs. BMW X5 Diesel?
So what does everyone think of each? Which is better in your opinion?
Personally I like the X5 just because it seems a little cheaper for a fully loaded one, but not by much. I have not driven either. They both seem hard to find. Americans not liking the diesel stigma(black smoke, redneck, etc)?
I am making this thread in both the Audi and BMW section to try to get a good opinion of both. If that is bad of me to do, Im sure a mod will take care of it as they see fit. I apologize in advance if this is a problem. I dont care about post count, thats not my reason.
EDIT: Sorry, meant the ones you can only get in the US. Audi Q7 3.0L TDI(225hp 406tq) vs. BMW X5 35D 3.0L(265hp 425tq).

I have not driven the X5 Diesel but I have driven the Q7 diesel. My mom's regular gas Q7 was in the dealership for almost 4 weeks trying to sort out a problem with it. They gave us a new A4, but we wanted something better after a week of waiting. They gave us the diesel Q7. Imo that car was, even though it was a base model (no HID's, smart key etc) greater than my moms loaded 3.6 gasser. I always thought her Q7 was slow and had no power, but the diesel Q had massive pick up from the huge amount of torque. I think the ride quality was a little harder, bute, and this is a huge but...we got 650+ miles on ONE TANK!! Even though diesel is more expensive, it is worth the extra cost. All in all I would buy that in a heartbeat if I was in the market for one.
As I said, I haven't driven the X5, I'm sure it's good too, but the Audi was great.

my dads got a diesel q7 and ive got a diesel x5 and hands down the x5 has the better engine and handling. Bmw diesel engines past 3 litre are twin turbo so theres alot of torgue and and the higher up in the rev range you go it begins to sound more like a petrol engine, plus its much more economical.present,
