I'd had my eye on an e61 LCI motorsport 535D Touring. NZ New, all the fruit, low mileage. Price dropping month by month. Just waiting for a contract, and 'go' - a quick PPI, Autosure, and pay the $$. I'd done the groundwork and figured I could afford it, the depreciation (on my business) would work. Got an offer today. Bingo! It's all happening, a new pipeline of work, keep the income running. Should have that stitched up in a couple of days. Called the dealer. "that 535D Touring you've had on your website?". "yes, sold it on Sunday". Deflated. There are few 535D Tourings around. The sedans - currently in the market - are over-priced. A decent 530D Sedan would do, prefer a touring though. So I'm looking at E70 X5 Diesels, NZ New. Preferably M-Sport. Am I mad? My price band indicates I'll be getting under 180k kms. I know they love brake rotors and pads, and like tryres (around $2k a set at 19 or 20"). I guess there are the same swirl flap concerns, and keeping the transmission serviced, as with the e60. Anything else I need to know? cheers.
