Buy and sell / Re: SOLD 2006 BMW X5 30d M Sport - Sterling Grey
« on: May 15, 2018, 09:38:30 PM »
Well done and Congrats on the sale.

Was it via the forum or did you use the likes of Autotrader/EBay?

eBay.

Nice one.
It looks like I'm going the same route as you, Sterling Grey E53 to a F15.

Nice, which F15 you going with? I’ve got a M50d on order as you’ve no doubt seen on the other thread.

Sorry missed this. Not going for new even though there are some good deals about.
I'd love the X5M however 2 V8's in my house might be a bit overkill!!! Most likely to be a 40d - used prices seem to be similiar for BMW AUC cars against the private cars up for sale, just got to find the right one.

Equally Id be quite happy to take on a 50d if anybody is thinking of moving theirs on?

Hi Lee

Wow Sid congrats on the sale....there is no doubting the E53s are solid at what they do which is why it makes it so difficult to take the decision to sell

Whe did you advertise it in the end and how much did you get if you don't mind me asking? (pm if your prefer)

I'm sure our X5 is quite similiar to yours and I'm edging closer to that period of changing it. I've been saying that for the last 2 years but still not ended up selling but the calling of a F15 is getting stronger and stronger!!

I've got a Michelin Diamaris star rated front if that helps you.
I'll put the details in a PM to you

Is it a front or a rear Michelin that you need?

General X5 Forum (F15) / Re: Swapping my 40d with a 40e
« on: December 08, 2017, 11:45:00 PM »
The pros are are great fuel efficiency & performance & in my case no VED (being registered in 3/16).I think that I read somewhere that  the cost of a full charge from the mains is about £1 but I may be wrong on that. I obtain about  15 miles on electric,although it seems the decrease with colder weather;can't think of any cons.

15 miles is somewhat surprising. I guess reading about the Nissan Leaf's some of the chaps took out on here I was thinking it would more like the 80/90 mile range and then the 2.0 petrol engine would kick in.

Once the 15 miles have been exhausted does the electric element play any further part in journey if you are travelling further? Is there any self gen for additional 'electric' mileage?

I guess the VED change is also for cars registered from April 2017 and cars registered before that will still benefit from a nil rate?

Thanks all for the feedback.

Bringing this bttt.

Looking for any further feedback on the 40e if possible please? Pros/cons? Estimated cost of charging? Distances possible on electric only?
Any other adopters happy to provide any feedback also?

General X5 Forum (F15) / Re: F15 40d v 50d
« on: November 09, 2017, 10:17:32 PM »
Thanks for the replies chaps.

I should have said it will be a used model that I will be looking at between £30-40k spend. Looking at cars available they all 40d, 50d, 40e seem to be available within budget, it's just a question of which one  :bangin:

It seems not many favour the 30d in a F15, is that because they feel it a bit sluggish/slow?

General X5 Forum (F15) / F15 40d v 50d
« on: November 08, 2017, 11:19:04 PM »
Hi guys

Anybody able to share any experience between these 2 engine outputs on the F15.
I've experienced the difference between a 30d (e53) and a 40d (x6) and without question I would only buy a 40d going forwards on any future X model I consider.
What I need some help with is it worth paying the extra for the 50d, if the car is mainly going to be used for local driving over a 40d model?

And just to twist things further, am I going to be left lacking power with a 40e model?  :blink:

Cheers
Max

Private plate transfer can now all be done on line, saves lots of time.

Do you mind me asking what they gave you for your car?
Mine is very similiar albeit Sterling Grey, 05 and slightly slower miles and most likely to be up for sale soon
