New car here!

Ok details.

This is a 2008 BMW X5 3.0

This was my bosses wife's car. 1 owner, 1 driver (son drove it for 5 minutes to grab chinese food once). Garage kept, All dealer maintained. They paid cash for it new. Car only has 70k miles. There is not a single dent on it. She said she doesn't think there is a scratch on it, but its hard to tell with the dirt (they have a gravel driveway). It is pretty loaded. Like rear heated seats, 4 zone climate control, front seats are heated and cooled.

It drives real nice, super sure of itself, but its also pretty easy to take a corner fast. And it sport mode, with its gearing, the thing rips. I passed a car on the way home, and it did 50-70 very nicely.

I kinda figured, if in a year and I dont like it anymore I could offload it easily. It will still be under 100k miles, and I will get my money out of it. I paid 7k for it.

I will clean it and get more pictures Friday.

Looks like a good deal to me.

Sweet.

I had one as a rental couple years ago. That was a pretty fun week.
