Well at least it has the roundel Ron. How do like that? I don't even look at the newer stuff so I have no idea what exact model, X5? Nice to see you are still buying cars!! :D

I think that is an E83 (X3), probably with a 3litre diesel engine (M57)…?

you will have to revise your signature, Ron!

Some versions of the M57 motor make 286bhp..... :shock: Even though according to some "it is the fuel of satan" I have often wondered how an E24 would go with that motor in it..... :-"

cheers

Brucey, my daily is a V6 diesel and coupled with an auto box it might not be exciting but it makes a lot of sense and for a lazy but fast drive.

Shame Mr Khan has declared war on diesels. Went into London the other week and parking a diesel now incurs a 50% surcharge on the meter :-#
