Hi looks like you are running X6 wheels on your new X5 E53 ! just check that they have spigot rings in the front wheels as they as from an X6 they run 74.1 pcd front and 72.6 pcd rear , these just centre the wheels and stop any judder about £20 for four from local parts store . I run the same wheels on mine style 258 .

                  Hi you need to check the PCD on the wheels if they are 611M winter square set up from the X5M , I read they used a different set up back to front like the X6 E71 74.1 fronts ,  72.6 rears . Could be a costly mistake !
 The latest X5 run 74.1 all round , just like the E70 .

Hi as I said when we bought ours it was light years ahead of the X1 , felt better screwed together & much faster even though they were supposed to have the same engine , 400 nm from a 2 litre is amazing same as a V8 M3 . The interior space is great for our 3 growing boys and being able to keep them all seperate at times is a bonus they have all stopped complaining that they were cramped in the X1 .
 Boot space is also amazing even bigger than the X5 , one or two things we would order next time would be the rear camera and the under bumper opener for when you have your hands full . The key opens and closes the boot if you keep your finger on it one thing we didnt realize . last thing is the auto park which once pressed finds a parking space big enough for the car then beeps , you still need to press the accelerater , put into reverse or forward but it is amazing that it can parallel park itself .
 Good luck

Hi not sure what the bike rack prep would be cost wise but cant see it being any more than a towbar ? The E84 X1 had 2 towing eyelets on the rear bumper for a bumper mounted bike carrier but not so lucky on the 220d Gran tourer .
  Give me a shout if you want to know anything else !

Hi yes still got it! Fantastic just order with pan roof as it makes the interior much lighter , we should have spec d our with a towbar but was about £350 for a none factory one from a BMW dealer recommended supply and fitted. We went for a white one can't remember the colour but find it attracts the flies so maybe a blue one next time.
 I managed to get a set of winter wheels and tyres for it and even 6" of snow couldn't stop it at Christmas.
 Only had one problem the thing that clogs up is it the DPF needed replaced after 10k, was the 2nd one they had in doing. Covered under warranty though.

Hi it is great that the 4x4 hasn't been left out with the green party, I looked at buying a new one last year but electric points are a problem where I live, the concept is a very good one, economy amazing and at the end of the day it is built by BMW.
