    Looks like the M5 is going, although I love the grunt and sound , I am not doing it justice with my driving style. Like many people comment in typical british weather a Ford Transit can pull away from the lights quicker.

    No regrets over owning one, and will miss it but the deal I got on a pretty well speced 530d was just too tempting to pass up. Just on my way to Aberdeen so will be 2 weeks before I pick it up, was going to order one but this car had just about everything I wanted except sun roof .

    Dealer rang last night with a "good" offer but I asked for 4k more off, rang me this morning to say he could do it .

    Sophisto Grey with Ivory Interior, very happy

    Shame to say goodbye to the M5 but presume you're getting a G30? Will be interesting to hear how you get on with it! :)

    Great outcome - the negotiation was certainly worthwhile!

    Can't be easy saying goodbye to an M5, new one sounds good though?

    The difference a year makes. :D:D
    Aren't you going in the wrong direction - petrol to diesel, given the present climate?

    I shall be waiting a little while yet. Won't do anything until the new M5 is out so that prices drop even further so I am justify having another car and may use it to go to and from work in as can see the Range Rover will be dead in the next year or so.

    Cheers

    I can understand your position. I feel that the X6M is an obvious waste of a fast car 99.9% of the time. And I'm not just talking acceleration when I say "fast". The 750 had and X5 4.8 has more grunt and dynamic ability than you need for most of the day. The M Car is so far past this that it seems unnecessary, wasted, rather pointless. But it's the same for anyone who runs such a car. So I'll stay in the pointless club :)

    Best wishes with the new car.

    Thanks Harry

    Good reason to change is to stay in "the pointless" club ;)
