Hello BMW Owners,
Ralph here, I own a 2006 X5 (e53) 3.0D Sport, had a 330D M sport touring before but found it a little small inside, had the X5 for 7 months and so far very pleased with it. It is mainly used at weekends and is my long term project to refurbish and upgrade certain part, brakes, interior & wheels, it was a family car so had a pretty hard life but not as hard as some I saw. I will post some photo's later but for info it's silver and and is pretty much as it came out of the showroom. I am already learning about potential issues and intend to address these before they happen (transfer box actuator gear etc.). No doubt I will have lots of questions as time goes on and I get more involved with the refurb. Happy motoring.
