Hi,

After driving my (1992) ancient and smelly Terrano for the last 16 years (which has had a range of live and dead animals in the back including sheep and once a very dead and very smelly alpaca) I have finally decided to upgrade. As an aside, a wee while ago my partner took the car with a trailer load of sheep for delivery to a couple of friends. She dropped off the first half-a-dozen but was unable to secure the last remaining one securely in the trailer; so she tied it up and put it in the back of the Terrano. Being tied up didn't prevent it from weeing and pooing, liberally. Took a while for that smell to dissipate! Anyway - hummed and hahed for quite a while. Should I get a 6-year old Kia or similar or an older premium car. Well obviously the premium car won out - a 10 year old BMW is still well nicer than a 6 year old Kia (or whatever). Looked at a Q5 (too complicated) and an ML320 (too ugly) before settling on an X5. Didn't necessarily want the 40D but that was what was available so it'll do nicely 🙂. Haven't had much of a chance to drive it yet, and won't for the next month other than to the supermarket but it is a lovely ride and I love the engine growl. No doubt I'll be badgering people about all sorts of BMW related stuff - but that is for another post(s). In the meantime, is there a funny handshake or something I have to learn now I am a member of the club?

Well, if you need a front set of brakes I have a set of Brembo pads and rotors. For after the lockdown. 
 

Congrats!

Thanks, I'm still smiling. I might take you up on the brakes in the future. About 10k km left on the present ones.

Keeping Terrano as 'dirty car', not really worth anything in any case.
