So, here's some pics of the X5, fresh from an exterior buff and polish and engine bay cleaning.Hey folks - I just dropped in after another long absence, to find a spot to let people know I've reached that point where I'm finally willing to let go of my '05. Still been driving it daily, but some issues are starting to arise that will require more maintenance for me to keep it, and I just don't feel like investing the time and energy. I considered selling it, but I suspect when I go to get it safetied I'll find a couple issues that will need to be corrected for it to pass (mainly upper control arm bushings & cracked exhaust manifold).
Bought in 2012 with 170k km on it, now over 400k...served me well, but I've made a deal to pick up a beautiful 2012 X5 50i with M-sport pkg next week.
Kind of a shame since it has sooooo many recent new parts, I figure I'll part it out before I dump it as scrap.
If anybody has any interest, PM me for details
Apparently they weren't listening about making Ventilators either and had to get a kick in the ass to wake them up.Your example of people moving to other brands shows that GM is not responding to what people want. Hello GM, are you listening?
