Garage List
2007 BMW X5  [0.00]
Had my X5 in for service last week and they gave me a brand new 528xi well optioned as my loaner. It had 21 km on it when I picked it up. It was like having a new car for a day! Pretty sweet and when you get that little 4-cyl turbo revved up it sounds amazing (like an old E30 almost). Just strange to hear those sounds from a 5-series.

I did it, with the new way they are getting coded, you don't need to change your frm.

US Spec, yellow amber lights look cooler, and more expensive.

What's your budget? If you want to get into an M3 for a sake of saying 'oh yea I drive an M3' then don't do it. I'd stay away from that one, no i-drive, 6 speed, matte accents.. Let us know your budget and we'll direct you in the right path.

Ideally between 50-55k, I'd prefer a 6MT but won't say no to a DCT.

Hmm, whats wrong with any of those 3 items? (no-idrive, 6 speed, matte accents)? I know it might be a personal preference thing but im interested on why you'd stay away from a car with those items?

As for that car on kijiji, I think you could do a lot worse especially since the car still has warranty on it. If you can live with no Idrive I'd check it out plus its a Canadian car with edc. Personally I think prices are over inflated in Alberta and would look in BC instead.

6MT FTW. You will have so much more fun driving 6MT than the DCT (IMO)

I would try to get an M3 with iDrive. You pretty much control everything from there. Also if I were you, I would make sure to buy an M3 under warranty or a CPO one.

If you are okay not to have iDrive, the M3 in this link is a pretty decent deal.

Good luck!

Yeah that's what I've noticed. The prices in the US are eye catching considering the dollar is at par, too bad there are sometimes issues with warranty. I'll just keep on looking for a Canadian one.
