Changed the X5 for an X6

Tue Nov 13, 2018 7:53 pm

Traded in the 40d X5 last week for an X6 M50d. Went away on holiday with it almost immediately for a week so the pics of the car are not showing it at it's clean best. Very impressed with it so far, power is fantastic and the ride is better than the E70. Just waiting for the log book to come back so I can put my private plates on :)

Haha, it's actually slightly more economical than my E70 X5 40d :)

I went the same way in 2015 changing my E70 for the F16 and agree with your comments regarding ride and fuel economy, ownership for 3 years and nothing but impressed with the whole package. Have just extended the BMW warranty although apart from a boot lid issue at the begining, nothing has gone wrong and unlike many other cars, I'm still not bored with it!!

Lovely motor sir,

I’m hoping to get mine across to Scotland next month to stretch its legs a little.

Thanks Don. I'm off to France on Monday for a couple of days so I'll take it easy going there to see what sort of mpg I can get and then give it a bit of a blast on ther way home for some fun :D
