Trouble parsing soap xml result

Hi,
I can't seem to figure out the best way to parse the result of my curl/soap request.
For example, if all I was trying to do was get the BaseMSR value for below, how do I echo it out? Can't seem to access the value on its own. In a perfect world I'd convert it to json for the return

Code in my controller is:

$request = '
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"><soap:Body>

<VehicleGet xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://schemas.datacontract.org/2004/07/PBS.PartnerHub.ServiceModel">
  <IncludeBuildVehicles>false</IncludeBuildVehicles>
  <IncludeInactive>false</IncludeInactive>
  <SerialNumber>9991.QA</SerialNumber>
  <VIN>WVGEF9BP1ED005013</VIN>
  <Year>2014</Year>
  <Year>VOLKSWAGEN</Year>
</VehicleGet>

</soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>
';


$soapURL ="https://partnerhub.mydomain.com";
	$ch = curl_init();
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $soapURL);
	$header[] = "Content-type: text/xml; charset=utf-8";
	$header[] = "SOAPAction: VehicleGet";
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $header);
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $request);
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$username:$password");
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 60);
	
	$result = curl_exec($ch);
	
	curl_close($ch);
	
	dd($result);

This is a bit of a hack, but it works.  SOAP is just awful, isn't it!

Worked right out of the box and using a function is much cleaner in my case.
Thanks again. Always so concise.
