With it being a 2009 does that mean it’s only the 6 speed box? Mileage is great but 16k gets you in a 40d under 100k miles and I’ve even found a 2013 50d on Autotrader.

I reckon you’ll need to chop a few grand off that price, hope I’m wrong though.

They hide their miles very well if looked after and the 8 speed and LCI engines are a nice upgrade, still miss my X5 40d.

What’s the idrive on these is that the newer style?

Personally I’d rather have a newer, better spec (in terms of engine, gearbox, idrive ) with 100k motorway miles on the clock than a car that’s pottered about and older spec. The LCI versions are a decent jump in terms of performance, MPG and technology.

and what I mean with hiding miles is you don’t have to have a low mileage car for it to feel, drive and look good.

But I’m sure yours feels a fresh as a daisy and there are plenty that insist on the low miles.

I Bought a 2016 66 plate 40D M sport X5 with low mileage and every extra available , 8 months ago , it is better in every way than my 2004 54 plate 30d sport that I owned for nearly 12 years although if I had the chance to get my car back with lower mileage I would jump at the chance . There was something about the way it drove , held the road , sounded and the way it made you feel .
I test drove a new G05 30d with suspension to rival a Range Rover but it the wife felt sick in the car with its bouncy ride , even mine feels about 8" too high , I have 21" style 375 wheels on the car and it still feels comfortable but not sporty .
The new cars are all trying to make you feel in control but disconnected in many ways with traction control that cant be switched totally off and so many systems controlling your driving . I also have a 2008 2.7 Boxster that drives like a go kart leaving many modern day cars far behind when approaching the twisty bits .
As a for sale page people can be very critical often commenting on cars that they have little or no interest on or in and it makes you feel as if you have made a mistake .
A. your car looks in very good condition .
B.your car is very low mileage .
C. great service history .
D. nice mods and upgrades .
E. price reflects mileage and condition .
The best place to advertise would be auto trader or piston heads , although some one on here may have a mate looking for one .
Good luck with the sale !

ahhhh he's sulking and taken his ball home.

he asked the question about his pricing so I gave him my thoughts, it was expensive for a pre facelift X6

- but I also wished him good luck and hoped to be proven wrong.

Sulking, not at all. A pompous and inaccurate remark.

Its usually good manners to simply be courteous whenever commenting on someone else's sales thread. You completely ruined mine

If you cant say something nice, say nothing or say it via a PM, including your idea of a value.

Public comments of 'only six speed' and LCI is better does me no favours at all. I didn't seek critiscm or negative remarks only a value if mine was off.

You have reminded me the world has its share of unthinking inconsiderate individuals

Stick it back up on here then and I’ll keep well away.

You wanted to know why I thought your value was off so I told you :headbang:

With you saying you’re leaving the UK I thought there could be a bargain here as it seems a lovely example but instead it’s the most expensive pre LCI X6 in the country.

Good luck with the sale but don’t book them flights just yet.
