Brown as fuck: 2001 BMW X5 3.0 - Exxon5!

There does seem to be the odd gem of an E53 colour combo around. I still think I win though :D 

210 mile round trip today - faultless. Coolant level seems to be stable for now ?

Didnt reset the trip before I left so not sure on consumption (shows 20.9 average, up from 20.1 when I left) but the range was at 400 miles when I left with a full tank and it’s now on 398 on my return!

I guess some folk just have different priorities. 

I get stuff done to the house every year to keep it good but my newest car is 13 years old, other folks in the street have new A6s and X3s but their houses have water ingress, missing slates and all original fixtures and fittings ( I always have a nosey online when a house near me comes up for sale).

I went to look at a V70 for sale the other day, trader based at home on a nice street but his house was falling apart with rotten wooden windows and doors, rubbish laying around etc. Yet on the drive he had 2x Bentleys, 2x ML Mercs and 2x BMW's... he "specialises in used Bentleys and supplying new cars to rich contacts because his gets 4%" apparently. Like you say... priorities, he was probably asset rich and cash poor with that kind of stock :D

Just checked and at 10k a year 3+36 that  X3M is 736 a month.

That's significantly more than my mortgage.

Seems cheap* to me. 39x£736 is £28704. 
If you bought one cash for £80k would you expect to get £51.2k for it at 3 years old? If not the Lease seems a cheaper all round option. 
I suspect the excess mileages will be about a £1 per mile.

I think you'd get more 35 or 40 for plus the market for cars like this is unpredictable with the changes in legislation around congestion charging and road fund license. . Leasing is the way to go if you want something like this.

Here's a BMW garage selling one brand new for £66,000 with nearly 16 grand off.

I've downloaded the figures £769 is at 47 months and a very juicy deposit.

I'm not wishing to take part in the PCP bashing that takes place on here, but I'm struggling to understand who would buy this car? 
To have this as a company car with fuel it would cost £15k:yr in tax - it would actually be no more expensive to lease it at your own expense! A Volvo XC90 hybrid with a list price of £74k would only cost £5k. 

So it seems almost anyone having this car is spending at least a grand a month of their own money. Whether co car tax, lease costs, or depreciation if buying in cash.
