NICE!

Are you gonna tow your racecar with it? I’m thinking about getting into an X5, so I can tow the E46.

Congrats on the pickup! I was actually looking really hard for a nice e70 for the past few months with a third row and came up empty, so settled for a boring Highlander.

Thanks!

they're hard to find - especially the clean ones! I probably looked hard at 10 different ones, and had several PPIs conducted...

Congrats!!! Best SUV ever!

My wife drives the same year and engine but Alpine white.
We tried to replace it, due to a lot of trouble free miles, but the replacement was no match.

So far 110k miles and two problems came up.
1. 103k miles - Urea tank temp sensor bad (not BMW fault since this is an USA requirement and the same universal system is in all cars). car drives normal but lamp came on. I plan to rip the whole urea stuff out when I have time.
2. 60k miles - Boost pressure sensor, this was probably caused by the JBD in plugged in. Car drove normal except limp mode in hard acceleration.

Besides that only oil/ fluid changes and some bushings at 100k miles.
notable feature, the X5 loves to eat tires!!
Best mod, no dust brake pads.

since there are some E70 experts in here, any thoughts on the X5m? Been eyeing those lately and for $25k or so they seem like great value for a DD. Anything out of the ordinary problem wise I should know?

Love the x5m.
Possible replacement in my book.
However my wife drives quite a lot and she has concerns on the gas usage.
The diesel has great MPG while pulling like an animal.

That's being said, DO NOT buy the 5.0 v8 e70. A friend of mine made a collage of his e70 on the flatbed when braking down.
