Indeed, my build is around 107k, which contains 35k of tax.
For the maintenance, will a X5 40d be more expensive than a 530d?

Thanks for the insights.

Needing a tractor thinking X5 40d

So I need to tow 2500 kgs on a trailor.
The Touring is not capable, so I am thinking of switching to a X5 diesel.
What are the drawbacks?
