    Collected my new (2008) car yesterday afternoon, E60 530D automatic M sport, totally impressed, first BMW for 12 years, I had a 320i for 10 years, it was a 1988 model two door which was bought in 1990. I`ve had two Jeep Grand Cherokees and an X type Jag in between. And boy has technology moved on, the gear change is so smooth and modern diesel is more powerful than the 3.0 V6 Jag was. see if this lasts me for 10 years.
    Gonna give it a good run out this weekend.

    I have a 530D sport, manual box, its so sweet although its 6 years old with 54K miles i have done the essentials like, swirl flap delite, dpf delite and cat delite with a remap.............although yours will have the heavy duty plastic swirl flaps they are still pron to snapping and then thats your engine fubared.........

    consider getting them removed within the 1st 60k or even sooner, But enjoy the car, i am

    A DPF is a component in your exhaust that filters out the soot particles and there's no potential problem (other than the replacement cost of the DPF when it's due as a service item) providing you use your car on sufficient long journeys regularly enough for it to regenerate), Modern diesels with DPF's aren't suited to use solely around town and need a decent run regularly.

    Cat and DPF delete is simply removal of them from the exhaust system and substitution of a straight through pipe. This needs to be done in conjunction with reprogramming the ECU to allow for their removal. This will also release improvements in bhp and torque. However, delete them and you risk falling foul of new MOT rules, be warned.

    Though there may be a few examples of it happening, the later swirls flaps aren't at all prone to failure, this is largely forum myth. Recorded failures against the numbers of cars out there are very small.
