Hi all, I've been a member for many years, always concentrating on my heavily-modded 95 M3, but the kids are getting older (7 and 9) so it was finally time to get a nice Sport-ute. After two years of false Autotrader alerts I finally found a winner in my X5 search. It had to be a 2006 (last year of the true manual - a 6 spd), had to have less than 75K miles and had to have been taken care of. I was SHOCKED to see a 2006 Corrporate X5 come online with a stick and only 28K miles. I phoned in a deposit right away, flew 1200 miles, bought it and drove 19 hours home! I wasn't going to let this one slip by. It was built at SC but then exported to BME Corporate in Germany as an executive car - wasd driven only 3500 miles in it's first two years and then was imported back to the US and sold as new - the first owner only put 6000 miles on it and sold it to the guy I bought it from, who only put 19000 more miles on it - all BMW serviced (the first few at BMW HQ in Munich!). I'm amazed at how meticulous the previous owners were - this is a 6 year old, brand new car. Drove 19 hours as though it had just rolled off the assembly line. Now, on a few questions for those savvy X5 owners: 1. I think the answer is no, but might there be an audio system aux-in jack hidden somewhere? 2. Unlike Gretchen (the M3) I don't intend to mod this X5 at all, unless there are truly advantageous mods folks have found that surpass the BMW magic of balance and refinement - anyone? Any info would be greatly appreciated, Scott 95 M3 - modded like a demon. 06 X5 - a 6spd stick!!! Yayy 08 Prius - just 'cause.
