Even the gf said your car looked nice... which is a rarity.
Certainly sounded good though.
I don't drive to work so traffic isn't a concept I am forced to deal with often, I feel for you. No matter how good a car you're stuck in, in the end you're still stuck in traffic

Glad my car wasn't really dirty then and yeh I expect you copped some noise because when I passed you the blower had just begun to hit it's strides!

Spotted TMQ on the Calder. I was in the e53 X5, gave you a wave, but only the passenger saw. Didn't think he knew what to do when I waved. Haha. But the car was looking good, definitely stands out.

Thanks Peter!! Yeh ppi got completed and it came up clean. I check the market and there's two with same year and same specs both asking over 85k towards 90k so it sounds like a good deal to me. I've seen the car in person today and no scratches on the body either. Just a little scrape on the very bottom of the front bumper from parking too close but its not visible unless you stick your palm underneath the front bumper and feel it with your hand lol. It's pretty much immaculate even for a fussy guy like me so I didn't complain. I have till end of the week to decide.

Sounds like a great deal - did you get a chance to take it for a decent drive? Oh and being a vert, check the top mechanism, JIC

Thanks brother, yeh I have. It drives and sounds very healthy.. Roof works great too. No noises or lags from the roof. Closes and opens perfectly. It's only on 55,000 kms and the owner has only used it on weekends. My heart is set on it but as you know no1 rule when car shopping is to never rush it so I will let the owner know on Friday.

Cheers mate

I did see you but didn't get a chance to wave back because of all the bloody d1ckheads that frequent that road everyday I drove home

Nice X5 btw
