Finally Got Mine - in Aus

Hi All,

I took delivery of my silver v6 limited aussie edition on thursday. It was only released officially about 6 weeks ago here.

I got it with QL, skid plates, side steps. Its done 350km so far and its meeting all my expectations so far. I have had many looks for the x5 drivers, had a few chase me to so see what I was exactly.

I run in sports mode most of the time, I feel the car feels best in that mode and it feels slightly more comfortable.

I have come from a Toyota Landcruiser 80 series and my sports car is a vw gti 2005.

Yep, I intend to go out bush every weekend, I am in Western Australia so we have lots of nice spots not far from the city. I am looking for another set of tyres that I can replace for my weekend trips.

I envy you, big time! We used to have a one-man bureau in Hamersley/Malaga, but alas I never could find a good enough excuse to fly out there and head into the outback.

Enjoy, but you first might want to get the latest TSBs.

How do you get the latest TSBs? On my 1000km service do I just asked them to flash the units for all the latest bugs? Or do I have to tell them individual problems for them to address each one?

Wow, I had to read that thread title twice but I'm relieved that I've sorted it out now.

Congrats on the new ride and enjoy it!
