    The old girl is doing me proud, I just hope that hasn't put a jinx on her. :whistling:

    It’s always satisfying to clock up the miles with little trouble.

    My old E60 525d managed 140k in 5 years without missing a beat.

    Indeed, I took a Volvo S60 I had from 30k miles at 2.5 years old to 160k miles at 6 years old, with only minor non scheduled spend. Your priorities for a car are very different when you do 35k miles a year, it gets left anywhere and everywhere from nice hotels to station car parks, and its a mobile office, dining room, occasional bed and reliability is vital!

    Thanks, aye she is. I think the V8 would be too big for me, the straight-6 is reckoned by many to be one of the best engines BMW ever produced, capable of star-ship mileages if looked after. :salut:
