    Always tough with the E65, has lots of known problems irrespective of wether yours is good or not, probably should be worth 25k, probably is with 12-15k if you can find the right buyer. My 2 cents. Pics would help

    Very well thanks, clocked about 8000ks already. Doesn’t take long and includes a great trip to Welly and back. its very quiet and refined till you want to give it some stick, but it feels like the front control arms are a bit tired, getting a little bit of noise from the front end. Still basic maintenance and it’s 2011 so expect some work. averaging around 10.5l/100ks on gas which I’m happy with. Trips are around 9.5, even with a six speed box, it’s only ticking over 2000rpm at 120. Not having had active cruise before I’m not sure I like it as much as I thought I would. While you can alter the gap to traffic in front, you get tards cutting in and that just has the car on the brakes and it’s frustrating so I haven’t used it as much as I anticipated (clicks off below 40 as well)

    Been mucking around to much and not had the 750 sorted, however fixed the airbag light issue, horn problem, replaced a few door clips to isolate some squeaks and it’s driving great post the front suspension refresh. Off for alignment and and WOF this week now, then it should be fully fit for service again. Loving having it driving again, and much smoother.
