^^^^^^ 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.

68000km is is nothing for an X5. Just get the dealer to fix the screen. There is an iDrive setting which turns it off. Not sure how much a pre purchase would be but money well spent. Good luck.

This was the second. The first was a similar issue on my X5, but a front tire and a standard 19" wheel, they paid but the tire wasn't as expensive. It still felt good though!
