The former site owner is due to contact me later today.

I will chase this up if he fails to do so & will update here in due course.

1. A new site domain has been purchased.

2.Discussions are underway to facilitate the setting up and running of a self funding replacement forum albiet these are discussions are still in relative infancy.

3. I have been in communication with the former site owner & admin. I would be lying to say I have encouraging news re ascertaining whether any data was backed up &/or is retrievable. He states he hasnt had a chance to get anything done & isn't sure when he'll get a chance to do so. Also offers no explanation as re the domain expiry issue. I have indicated that his response is far from encouraging but this has only caused him to reaffirm his position.

4. I intend to get together with pvr at some point to discuss/move things forward but but we are both genuinely tied up with non forum related activities which puttting it simply are legitimate, time consuming & higher priorities.

5. Rest assured we dont intend to give false hope & the new site has not been overlooked. We appreciate that in the meantime anyone else could start a new site, however, anyone can start a new site any day after we go live - thus we are not motivated to race when currently unable to fully commit our time & energy or importantly get it wrong !

In the meantime this site is very accomodating as is bmwland. I think most former x5drivers realise that others will welcome us if well behaved & polite.

Thanks for your patience.

AW8/PVR,

If I can help take the workload in any way just say the word. There are other forum members I know which have MUCH better knowledge of running a website than I do, should you need further assistance.

As for old data, even if we don't get it back, for me the priority now seems to be to logon and talk to my old friends (hope that doesn't sound too sad). I genuinely miss you all!

We can always build an up-to-date database with write-ups as we we go along.

As for this GREAT forum, deeply humbled by your hospitality - you can tell though, we X5Driver members feel lost without a home of our own.

Thank you though as always! Keep us posted AW8 and thank you for all your effort!

PVR you're useless as always! Still shining that old Clipper! God I miss the banter....

(making notes to pre-ban Sanj for then the forum comes back up ... )

Clipper doing great - thanks, got new wheels and tyres as the old ones (still 6 mm tread left) had dried out after 17 years ...

Just a reminder ... (colour not right in picture, it is darker then that)

Ok all, we are back

The new site,xdrivers.co.uk has now been opened for registration. AW8 and myself decided to use the new more generic xdrivers.co.uk to make it less X5 specific as we also welcome other X series drivers.

We have not been able to retrieve the old data from x5drivers, as unfortunately the site owner has been not as interested in assisting us (the moderators) as we would have liked him to be.

As before, we will continue to refer to this site for the vast amount of technical information that is available here, and of course - we are very grateful for the welcome that we have received here as well.

Please join us on xdrivers.co.uk
