Picking up a 4.6IS

Hi guys i've been lerking on the forums the last few days as I was looking into getting a 4.6is recently.Great help for us buyer's in the UK as there's not so many of these 4.6is's around.

Anyhows I'm think i'm going to buy this nice 4.6IS tomz probably!

Nice spec:These are factory options over the standard 4.6IS all-ready high spec:

4.6is Metalic black .Black leather
Tracker,(bmw fitted)
Running Boards
Titan line Trim
Double glazing
Climate Double

SunRoof
Electric folding heated wing mirrors
Ski bag
Rear seat heating
Bmw Upgrade hi-fi
Comms packs (sat nav tv etc)


Black on Black like i wanted and no nasty wood trim etc.

95k Genuine I've check the BMW History with BMW 14 visits and 8 Services last was 2011 March.

Only thing I'm worried about testing when I get there is the gearbox as I know there prone to going.I know theres a dodgy first to 1st-2nd downchanges being ruff.I've never driven an x5..Well drove a mates 4.4 2004 years ago but can't for the life of me remember how smooth the gears where.Is there some tell tell signs you guys can give?

Only thing that was putting me off these beasts online it seems your gearbox on the 4.4-4.8IS will deffo go before 120k.OR is this just a case of every person with a gearbox gone coming online? and really its just 20% of these cars?

Great site! Deffo going for x-pipes first mod!

thanks

1.30 a litre for the 95 octane stuff usually 12 pence more for the 97 octane.

for the OP the 4.6is is a great car to drive, I have owned mine for the last 3 years only problems that I have had have been the suspension mounting bushes, can probably class that as wear and tear, but well worth having a close look at them. Also check this buyers guide

Thank you TMV, you got the specs - going over the specs, I noticed couple of things that were included from the factory that I wish I had in mine, the RDC, the TV function... Was a fire extinguisher included?

Isn't the fire extinguisher part of the "Smoker Package"

hahaha, i get it - the SMOKEr package!!!! well, maybe in Europe it is, but we in the USA are all toopolitically correct and are trying to quit smoking, so the BMW does not put the extinguishers in our cars... same as warning triangles... first aid kits... rear fog lights... TV functions... aspheric mirrors... Drivers in the US are not well educated drivers, they might hurt themselves with something and then sue the manufacturer...
