Thank you, how do you like your 2006? What's the fuel economy like and has it required many repairs?

Mines a 3.0d, car has been sweet so far, removed the swirl flaps from the intake manifold as these can destroy the engine and need to fit a new drop link as mine has a split boot and I require pads, however parts are cheap as chips and really they are serviceable items. But yes I do actually love it

Oh diesel is averaging about 32 mpg but my local route to work is down twisty lanes so can't complain, really a quick car with loads of torque, I like it

Wow, sounds good. I'm so apprehensive about an older vehicle with 120 kms (I realize that's low for a 2007). What can I expect for a useful life?

I was the same, needed something to pull my caravan with and after lots of research I chose the x3, mine has 106000 miles and is still a sweet drive. Might get the autobox oik changed, I've already done the transfer case oil and that seemed to stop a bit of hesitation I was getting when pushing on, mine has full dealer history and was owned by an old lady from new so never really got driven hard I assume.....honestly though for the money can't go wrong, kids love it too and we've loads of room in the boot too, winner
