    I would say the BMW definitely. It just seems more yonuegr and fun than the Porsche Cayenne. Now, if it was between the Porsche Cayman and the BMW, I would go for the Cayman. It’s looks are much more exotic than the BMW, and would get more attention.I would also suggest the brand new 2010 Mercedes E class coupe, very nice looks, definitely an attention getter. Also, the Audi A5 coupe, also very nice. So really the Porsche Cayman, not the Cayenne, BMW 3, Audi A5, or Benz E coupe are all fast, excellent picks, and attention getters.
