    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:

    Not wishing to jinx either of us but I’ve managed to put that mileage x2 on mine so far. So indeed only run in ....

    (mind small caveat .... em diesel :whistle:)

    I’m also impressed with the lack of corrosion on the E60. Keep it up John
