      Had actually given these some thought to replace the wifeys Tiguan and it's still a contender... But the MPG is a 25% lower than the range I'm comfortable with and for some reason, I'm scared of them...

      The two things I took away from the forum link was 1) most seem to defend the overall reliability of the car and 2) the lions share of the REAL problems (I don't count a dead battery) are...

      iirc auto only and from working at a shop that worked on these all the time, transmission replacement scares the bajezus out of me.

      And yeah, why do you say that about the E60? Are the NA 6...

      Seems like Audis in the price range are either A4s (FSI gunk and all) or A6s of similar year with the 3.2 which look and feel very dated. I definitely want to do leather seats so that rules out most...

      So I found out the car in question doesn't have an AUX-IN (2006 530xi), can anyone chime in for my options to play music from my phone?
    10. Is there a way to get BMW spec/build sheets (2006)?

      I'm trying to track down a resource to find all the build specs on a few cars I may be taking a look at... With all the package options, I've found it tough to decipher. Thanks.

      So for a car that's strictly DD/snow-crawler, it sounds like the 530xi is a safe bet that shouldn't be any more difficult or expensive to maintain than expected?

      Oops, missed that. What would you say about tech on it? Bluetooth integration (Audio streaming, etc) and other creature comforts? I'm concerned it's going to FEEL old.
