Looking to takeover a lease. I narrowed it down to a 2008 BMW X5 (the 3L or w/e base model engine is) or a 2009 MB ML350 4Matic. It will be in Boston so 4WD is important. Im leaning more towards the ML at this point but what do you guys say?

I'd choose the ML350, although the X5 might be more dynamically rewarding.

X5. Drives better. Having owned 7 MBZ products of different vintages, I would still go with the X5. A drove a ML350 for a few weeks (rental car for repair work on wifes e320)

I did not like the steering at all on the ML.

Q7, hehe thinking outside the box.
My friend's dad just got a 2010 ML350, i haven't driven it, but its a really comfy passenger car. I'd say drive both and see which is better for you.

Have had 3 MBZ MLs and now 1 X5, even though its a 4.8 I believe BMW is a much better built car also the maintenance, down to the windshield wipers are included with BMW lease. Cant beat that.

I really dislike the X5, but i think it would be better than the MB. I think i'd probably find a RR Sport or even a Cayenne if they aren't ridiculous.
