Welcome back! The X5 also brought me back after a BMW hiatus. My last bimmer was a 2012 MN6 135 cabrio I specced and ordered--fun car. The X5 50 has proven to be more fun than I anticipated,...

I don't buy 3500 miles for the rear RFTs...mine have about that mileage. They still have more than half their life left, and I tend to push them.
