Wow that has almost everything. Great car, but that's a lot of $ for 2014 technology.

A lot of options that dont add much on resale unfortunately. Id also wonder what the corporate use of that car was with such low mileage.

Oh! Didn't realize that. I imagine it would feel quite slow compared to your old 50i.

The 19” or smaller wheels have always looked to small on the F15.

But 19's are the right size for the best ride.

I agree (I have the 19s on my 2016 50i). Car looks like it skipped leg day.

Moving this so as not to clog up Alan's thread:
It seems to me you should grab an older x5 as a beater / kid car / etc. The 2013s can be had for $15k with ~50k miles. You'll be driving the 2er most of the time, so having something a little 'less nice' as the 2nd vehicle won't be bad and you won't be putting a ton of miles on. They're durable, low maintenance and very good at hauling Dogs, Kayaks, and dirty kids:

Load them up w/ rubber mats and it doesn't even matter how dirty the kids or dogs are. Its safe enough for your son to drive when he gets his licens without you needing to worry 'too much' and cheapish to insure.

Or get really brave with OLD car maintenance and do this!!

I always loved the body kit and the look of the old 4.8is. It’s just chunky and mean.
