    Hi everyone, I have just bought a 525D SE touring (2 kids and a dog!), not even collected it yet until next week, just thought I'd join on here and read everyones experiences with their pride and joys. Moved from Ford to BMW and I'm sure I won;t be going back ! Sold my Galaxy today and looking forward to taking the 5 series for a run out next weekend. Bought a 2 year extended warranty independently from garage to cover any major mechanical things. High mileage but looking on here that doesn't really seem to matter as it has a full BMW service history. Got lots of toys on it too, (see signature). Look forward to sharing my experiences with you all.

    Yep thanks, can't wait, they are just doing a couple of things to it first that I noticed, one of the rear windows goes up then immediately comes down (anti trap sensor). Then there was an airbag light on so thats been fixed. I am having the alloys completely refurbished as they had been badly curbed on all 4, so got them stripped and repainted. Then theres a cherished transfer to complete, so hopefully ready for Wednesday to collect.
