For many Australians, selling your car before its warranty period ends – say every three or four years – is pretty standard practice.
And if your ownership experience has been good, then the first place you’re likely look for your next car, is the new version of the one you have.
So today, I’m upgrading from my own BMW X5 to the new BMW X5...

With record snowfalls this year, it has never been more tempting to pack the car and head for the mountains. As the weather can be unpredictable, you may need to fit your snow chains. James Ward runs through the steps to ensure you stay safe in snow and icy conditions.
Traditionally, the sportscar concept embraced lightness and simplicity – a less is more approach. Increasingly, though, the makers of the BMW X5 M from Munich and Porsche Cayenne Turbo from Stuttgart – together with Affalterbach arch rival Mercedes-AMG – threaten to burst the conventional ‘sportiness’ pigeonhole at the seams plying extensive feature lists, excess in luxury and extremes of high performance in formulating their range-leading Sport Utility Vehicles...
When looking for a new car, particularly if you have had a positive ownership experience, the first place many of us turn is the new version of the car we already have.
In my case, I’ve owned my second-generation E70 BMW X5 for three years now, and with the end of the warranty period approaching, the logical ‘next car’ path is the new third-generation F15 X5...
The arrival of a bigger, third-generation BMW X5 styled to please America prompted that we revisit that age old question – are large SUVs lumbering, unwieldy tanks better suited to the bush? (or Bush?) Or are they viable high-rise family wagons?
We picked the $100K price point, where the stars align in terms of 3...

BMW is reportedly preparing a quad-turbocharged diesel engine, which will initially do service in the brand's large sedan and SUV range.
According to both Bimmerpost and Autocar, the Bavarian luxury car maker's engineers are working on a new inline six-cylinder diesel engine boosted by four turbochargers...
Ordered this car in late 2014 after considering the Merc ML and Range Rover. The X5 M50d wins out because of its brilliant tri-turbo diesel engine that has monumental 740 NM of torque yet returns under 7L per 100 (on paper).
We had this car for more than half a year now and the average fuel consumption is just under 9L...
My Lease was about to expire on my 2010 X5 30i, the retention manager from the BMW dealer calls me to ask if I was interested in upgrading. I was going to refinance my E70 but because of some negative equity problems I had to put some cash towards the re-finance. He then suggested the Full Circle Program which suited me more...
We purchased the BMW X5 to replace an XC90 - a car that I maintain is still the most family oriented on the market. The X5 came brand new with all key options (innovations pack, panoramic roof, 20" M-Sport wheels) at a price we were very happy with.
We have had it 2-years now (25,000km) and consider it the best car we have ever owned...
