Hi, I recently purchased the BMW X5 3.0diesel. Let me explain a few things...
I live in Australia so we only have 4 models available: 3.0petroleum, 3.0desiel, 4.4petroleum, 4.6 petroleum. The 3.0d's distributed in Australia generally have Aluminium running boards and PDC as standard.
I just spent 20minutes getting a US Price conversion on each model and lost it.....
Basically the 3.0 models are between $54,000 and $58,000 US and have minmal features (rain sensor, leather, 17inch, multifunction wheel)
Can I ask is that bad value (excluding considerations like shipping, import tax...)
compared to US/UK prices.
I have had a few problems with the general quality of fixtures, doors not locking, boot not auto locking properly and becomming stuck and:
I have had a big problem with a clunk in the steering, especially when reverse parking. Has anyone had any of these problems and are they a common occurense in the non-german built cars? <NOT bagging USA> problem not fixed and told there was none!
ALSO, for the Australian market are the cars from Africa? can anyone provide details about which markets get which cars?
