Farewell E53 ... Going to E70

So my journey with my E53, nicknamed "Sharky" has come to an end
we had great times together, though sometimes he was heavy on my wallet
What made departing earlier than I thought was a leaking transmission heat exchanger that infiltrated my transmission with water... everything was cleaned up, but i was told that it's a matter of time before the trans will go south... so I sold it...
I got the E70, 2008, alpine white on Tobacco... 112K on the ODO, and ready to roll for few years I hope (i barely put 5K each year on the odo, so i hope it won't cost me much in repairs).

The Journey continues, with yet another X5, the one and only King of the road

I'm now blessed with an E53 and E70. What engine did you decide on?

It's a 3.0si
My motto is to keep it stock... every penny you spend on mods is a lost penny. keep your green papers for the repairs

But all stock and no mods is boring!

Congrats on your purchase...
