For some reason the X5 has a way better AC than the 540it— it can actually make me uncomfortably cold even when it's 115º outside.

Love to hear about the high mileage X5's. My X just hit 147,000 and my E46 is 199,750.

I love my high mileage cars. My E39 540i touring is at 192k miles now, and I intend to get it well past 300k. I put 18k miles on in just a year, and that's with other cars in my household. Now I'm racking up the miles on the X5.

The only trouble is that if I were to ever sell the X5 I'd have an extremely difficult time due to the mileage. People still think 150k is high mileage, so 215k is unfathomable. It took me a really long time to sell my 03 540i/6 because it had 198k miles.

Yeah, I put more money in my BMW's than they are worth. Just put $5K in each of them this year alone. That being said, I do not have a car payment and love driving both of them. I can't afford to sell them now... :bustingup

Nice cars! I dig that E46. Have you noticed that the E46 and X5 seats are pretty much the same thing? It's interesting how the X5 is a mishmash of E39 and E46 parts, I can easily spot which pieces come from which car.

As sharkk001 mentioned, Network Alignment is my go-to. They have a few different locations depending on where in the Phoenix metro area you're located. I'm in central Phoenix so I just go to the North Phoenix location. Their hours are great, especially on weekends when all the other alignment shops are closed.

Seats are close but the X5 has a bigger plastic back panel and different head rests. You are right though, the X5 is nothing more than a 4 wheel drive E39.

Nice ZHP! I would love to pick up a 6spd in imola red...

I also agree on not being afraid of higher mileage cars. It usually means they were cared for well enough to avoid being scrapped and have more replaced parts on them than their younger counter parts.
