If you always run the AC and just adjust the temperature without turning off the AC from new, you will not get the musty smell. I have also never had it on a car as I always run the AC "on" and turn...

Thanks for the advice. Paper towel will not scratch if it is dampened first. The amount of Windex I use sprayed into the damp paper towel is tiny. I have never had a problem with any crazed surfaces...

If my 2013 F30 335i didn't have Nav, I would be quite happy using Google. In fact, I use Google anyway most of the time. It's better than the OEM Nav. If you like the car and the kms, don't worry...

^^^^^^ Agree entirely, earning 56K you can't afford an X5, it will break you financially. Sell the Mustang and buy a 328i if you want a BMW.

Not sure, but I use a new 16gb iPod Nano plugged into the USB in my X6 with no problems. I like it better than BT which gets confused between my 2 iPhones which I carry for work and personal use.

You will have 3 years of warranty. Then you can take out additional warranty. Buy it new, maintain it well, change the oil frequently, it should be fine. Just buy it and enjoy it.
