Evening all,

Back in the BMW fold again after quite a few years and thought I'd say hello.

Having moved house a couple of years ago and given myself a 300 mile commute, it was only a matter of time before the economics of running my TDV8 Range Rover would over come me.

So I went looking for an alternative, quiet, comfort, a bit of pace, and superior mpg - and I finally settled on a 525d M Sport Business Edition. And what a car it is! I lurked on here for a while and read all sorts of hugely useful information.

The car is a 40,000 / 2009 mile example and it's just had a service. It's in very good nick inside and out.

I'm kind of interested in anyone's thoughts / comments on what big things I might need to take care of in the next 40,000 miles / 12 months. So far I've done 1000 miles in a week and it has been faultless, not a squeak bump rattle or cough.

Here's a couple of pics, and a snap of the trip computer after my first office-to-home commute.

Cheers all - if this forum has a virtual bar, my credit card is there too - help yourself.
