Mine was installed at build and was about £500 at the time.  £200 a year subscription.  Directline required a copy of the installation certificate and confirmation of the subscription status from the service provider.

In my case it is ‘no tracker, no cover’ but others may give you a discount - often less than having a tracker installed and current costs you  >:(

We have trackers on the other cars, but only the X6 had to have one.

Wonder if it's where you live that means your X6 must have a tracker fitted. I have been getting quotes for 50d X5's and X6's and no insurance company mentions having a tracker fitted.

Do you know how much discount companies give for having a dash cam installed?

I'm 57, no claims or points, £150 xs - loads of companies around the £350 mark. I'm actually with SAGA which was about £340 5 months ago.

Pleased you managed to get what you want :)
Looking forward to the pics. Where abouts in the country are you based as some on here will be able to recommend local Indy garages if you need any work done that you cant do yourself.
I have runflats on 20" wheels but use non runflats on 19" winter wheels/tyres so carry a space saver spare under the boot along with some tyre weld and a puncture repair bung pack :)

Problems / Re: 3.0sd rumble from the front

If it gets louder when you turn to the left it will probably be the drivers side bearing, louder if you turn to the right will be the passenger one.

Is it worse if you turn the wheel slightly to the left or right? If it is it could be a wheel bearing.

If you go for a 7 seater there is no space under the boot floor for a spare so it would have to sit in the actual boot :)
I have the 20" runflats but also have a spare under the boot floor - that was just in case I got a puncture while towing in France on the autoroutes, as trying to source a spare would be difficult with them being odd sizes.

Thans Graeme, that's reassuring and reality is all modern cars are complex, but at least I'll be upgrading to something I really like to drive and be in. Does yours have sports suspension and what size wheels?
Mine has self levelling suspension but it is not adjustable so I assume it's not sports suspension. It runs on 20" wheels with Bridgestone runflats.

Hi Andrew and welcome :)
I have had my E70 for 3 years now and the only things it has needed are a front spring and a parking sensor. I tow a 2t caravan and it is an effortless tow, car has plenty of power and is very stable. My car is a 2012 and the tax is £290.
I am sure you will love the X5 and there will be loads of room for all the family, and camping gear. Mechanically they are easy enough to work on for simple things like brakes.

Problems / Re: E70 4.0d 2012 parkng sensor issues
« on: June 25, 2018, 03:08:44 PM »
I have the same problem on my 2012 40D. I can't get any of the sensors to work on the front or back. Can't get any of them to click, so not sure what the problem is. Any ideas?

Problems / Re: Oil leak
« on: June 04, 2018, 03:47:59 PM »
Is it engine oil or power steering oil? I had a 3.0d 5 series and it developed a leak from where you mentioned and it was a leaking power steering hose, I think from one of the connectors.
Not sure if the X5's have the power steering hoses in the same place.
