    My brother is in the market for a new SUV and has narrowed it down to one of these two.

    Both Similarly equiped is around $72k.

    Which one should he go with?

    All of you who picked the Range Rover...:rofl: I can't help but laugh at you.

    Take it from someone who has owned a Land Rover, don't do it.

    Go with the X5. Both have issues, but the X5 has a bit less.

    Horrible? Let me explain...

    There are about 37 auto manufacturers in the world.

    Land Rover is #37 in terms of reliability and I don't mean that it was close between #36 and #37, either. There was a HUGE difference.

    what about a Audi Q7? I believe they are in the same price range and they look pretty nice.

    Both mine and my father's started to go at 60k. IF you get a Range (or any other Land Rover), get the extended warranty.

    Wife was reprimanding me earlier for looking at sports cars earlier today at the Nürburgring when she was under the impression our next car was an Audi Q7. Sadly, I admit I'm really deficient in my knowledge of these two SUV's and why they are worth that kind of price tag. Apparently the Q7 4.2 Premium will cost me $57,100 (Stateside cost: $65,700)...maybe a bit more info in the first post on specs and photos?
