Mein Auto: 2002 540i sport
We are all better off for that Q-man. Enjoy your new wheels. Wife INSISTS on a SUV even giving me her 2002 540 E39 so I could sell my 2000 540 E39 so long as she had an SUV...go figure. She had a Ford Exploder as she must have ride for our two Goldens even if it is once a year and being a short person (5'2") she hates sitting down low and loves looking truckers almost in the eye??? better check that.......

She and I looked at used X3s (too small) and used X5s and they were beautiful, but 2006 or 2007 to equal a 2012 Kia Sorento with 10 yr. 100,000 mile warranty. With a 2002 540 and a used X5--- well, we needed a vehicle we could count on every day and not have money issues. I worked 65 miles one way West and she worked 15 miles one way East. We could not share one ride even one day. She test drove an X5 and still talks about it even though her AWD Kia she claims she absolutely loves...she longs for the X5. I'm no dummy. Hell, I bought a M5 FOR HER because I felt guilty owning a 540 sport. I bought her a 1991 mint ZR-1 because I had a modded 99 C5 vette with over 500 RWHP. She is used to always having the best so I call first dibs on your X5! In Sept./Oct. we both got let go from our jobs totally surprised so we are lucky we have what we have I think.
