Cheers folks. Sadly I deliberated over it too long and in the interim it sold. Someone got a bargain! I should’ve put this post up yesterday morning when it appeared!

General X5 Forum (E70) / Service History Advice
« on: April 15, 2018, 02:18:11 PM »
Folks, I’m in talk with a non franchise dealer about a 2012 30d I have seen for sale. There are a few things niggling at me, but it’s such good value I’m tempted to go for it anyway. I just thought I would get the opinions of owners here.

It’s had 4 owners, which usually puts me off but I usually only keep my cars for a year or so, so it could just have had people own it of a similar mindeset to myself.

It’s had 4 stamps at bmw, including 2 oil services at 16k and 29k, the 29k was in April 16, so pretty much right for the 2 year/20k intervals. However the next oil service was done at 52k in Sept 17 at a non franchise chain of dealers. That’s 23k between 2 services, in 17 months. What are people’s opinions on that? My thought processes is that the engine got off to a good start on life at BMW, so really 23k should be ok. I’d get my bmw specialist to change it as soon as I get it anyway. Would it really affect the longevity of the engine, or even resale?

That car is such a good spec and price, hence my quandary!

I’ve had DAB in a few cars and have never had any bother. We live out in the sticks too. I couldn’t do without it now.

Thanks folks. DAB is listed as an option on its own in the 2012 brochure, so I dont believe it was standard on all LCi models.

Touring does yours have the Media Package? It definitely doesn't have the aforementioned DAB option fitted? Do you know the option codes on your car?

General X5 Forum (E70) / Anyone With Media Package?
« on: March 28, 2018, 08:46:17 AM »
Folks I am in the market for a 2010-12 LCi 30d. One of the options I cant do without is DAB. I have found the brochure online for the 2012 model and the Media Package includes DAB, but does anyone on here have a 2010 or 2011 car with Media Package and can confirm if DAB was included in the early days too?

If not, would anyone even have a copy of the brochure for the 2010/11 car?

There is something in my head that is telling me that DAB was only added to the package later. I may be wrong though!

Thanks.

Buy and sell / 2008 335i Convertible Inc BMW Warranty
« on: March 27, 2018, 07:53:43 AM »
Thought I would stick this up on here in case anyone was looking for a toy for the summer...

For sale is my 2008 335i M Sport. This is a truly fantastic example of the E93 shape, it has covered just 50k miles and has a full BMW service history to back it up (brake service carried out at BMW on 26/3/18). I purchased a BMW Warranty for it and there are approximately 7 months remaining. The original owner had the car up until 2016. The car has an incredible spec with the following extras; adaptive cornering xenon lights, professional navigation and idrive, DAB, Bluetooth, front and rear parking sensors, keyless entry and start, heated seats, electric memory seats, BMW Loudspeaker sound system etc. The interior and exterior are both in perfect condition. There were Michelin Pilot Sport tyres fitted to the rear a couple of weeks ago so these still have 7/8mm tread remaining. There are also Michelin tyres on the front with roughly 6mm left. This is possibly the best example of an E93 335i you will find, especially with the reassurance of a full BMW Warranty. It has been used as a 3rd in our family but is sadly no longer required. The car currently has a private reg which will be removed prior to sale. Any questions, please ask.

£11695 Ono

The car is located in Northern Ireland 25 minutes from the air and sea ports. The car came from England when I bought it and will return to the original English reg.

Buy and sell / 2005 E53 3.0D Sport 81k
« on: March 09, 2018, 02:40:53 PM »
For sale is my late 2005 X5 3.0D Sport. This is a truly fantastic example of the E53 shape, it has covered just 81k miles and has an extensive service history to back it up. The original owner had the car up until 2016 and during this period it was maintained only by BMW main dealers. During my ownership I have used a local BMW specialist who regularly comments that mechanically it’s one of the best he’s seen. It was serviced last week. The car is extremely well spec’d, with the following extras; panoramic sunroof, xenon headlights, heated seats, electric memory seats, front and rear parking sensors etc. Everything works in the car and it drives without fault. I currently have a stereo fitted which has a dvd player, digital radio, Bluetooth and sat nav, this will be removed prior to sale unless anyone would be interested in retaining it, in which case it could maybe be worked in to the deal. The alternative stereo also has Bluetooth and digital radio built in. The interior is in fantastic condition. There are a couple of minor age related marks on the exterior, but nothing major. The car is currently fitted with winter tyres which have approximately 5mm left. The summer tyres are branded and also have 5/6mm, these can be refitted prior to sale, the winter tyres can be left on, or both retained at extra cost. This is one of the best examples of an E53 X5 you will find. It has been used as a 3rd in our family but is sadly no longer required. The car currently has a private reg which will be removed prior to sale. Any questions, please ask.

How-To / Re: Door Handle Fix (E53)
« on: March 04, 2018, 08:06:27 AM »
Folks, my door handle still opens the door, but it can take 3 or 4 pulls before anything happens. Is this likely to be the carrier or could there be something else gone? From what I’ve read over the page everyone else’s handle has literally  just broken.

I like the sound of that. So the Warranty Direct one is recommended as a rule?
