Yeah the A6 is off my list, and I dislike the way the X6 looks. I'll definitely have to try the V8 in the X5, but at that point I'd rather just spend the extra cash for an E63S. Luckily I still have time to try out a variety of vehicles to see which I like the most.

It's just a horrible day when you realize the choice you have to make is an E63 S Touring. But sometimes these are the kind of things you have to live with. Poor bugger.

Lol, as much as I love the E63S I would never buy one, not at the price they're charging. I was just saying if I'm gonna spend close to 100k on a V8 X5, might as well go big or go home with an AMG wagon for an extra 10, but that would literally be overkill and over budget.

CPO? I'm in a weird little pocket of my town where there are ten or twelve E63 wagons, things are everywhere. Of course one of my neighbors also has a six cylinder X5 with an M badge in it. Maybe just fake it with an E450?

I hadn't even thought about CPO, so I just did a quick search and looks like its a very small market. 17 used W213 AMG E-Wagon's on Cars.com and Autotrader, and 1 CPO, which is gorgeous but has the hard as a rock track seats. Most seem to be $90k+ used (even with 20k miles!), and shockingly 3 of them already had 2 owners, and 2 were lemon/buy-backs and they're still priced insane. I would imagine since these are already low-volume vehicles, as well as most being build only/personal spec, that a lot of owners plan on keeping long-term and leases haven't ended yet, not to mention they hold their value better than the sedan. The Canadians are so lucky that they get the E53 Wagon.
