    Beige interior. Convince me!

    That looks great with the black carpet etc Paddy. That's a bit like what I did with the M535i, black carpets trims and dash with light seats. I like the contrast Not sure I would have gone beige if it was my daily driver though ! Topaz with Beige should look nice if it's in decent condition.

    Buying an X5 - any advice if you own/ owned one?

    That was around town to be fair, but it did like a drink

    I was invited to go to Bicester but there is really good meet on my doorstep the same day.

    I had a 2004 4.4 Sport and I loved it. Only sold it due to needing a seven seater, as said they drive very much like a raised E39, fuel consumption was around 19mpg if you drove like the clergy but it was a superb mile muncher.

    Still lots to do Mark, and I am sure there are many nicer things on here....but thank you I know what you mean, it's quick, useable, reasonably economical and fairly roomy. I like it more each time I take it out

    Yes I am Dunc, I took it to a local ford gathering at the weekend and it ended up with a large crowd around it and they genuinely loved it...I am also really glad I bought this to keep it company too

    Well the PAS leak seems to be coming from the pump so I have bought a new seal kit and will attack that shortly. I have cleaned up the whole area as part of the MOT prep so I can see where any fresh leaks may be. I also replaced all the washer pipework and blew out all the fitting etc with my airline, they are now working better than they ever had, the old pipework was a bit manky as you can see in the engine bay pic below. Here she is at the MOT place and some quick pics for insurance valuation ! It passed by the way Time to enjoy some of the upcoming meets and shows
