It has to be seen to be believed, honestly.

The rear seats fold up too (right into the quarter space, hanging off the rear grab handle), should they not be required, which offers a ridiculous boot space.

It's a cracking bit of kit. Can't believe what you get for the cash. It's officially an 8 seater but 6 can get in in recliner style seating. There's so much space. Full leather, rotating seats, foot rests, lazy boy-esque leg extensions. Everything's electric.... even the doors. Birdseye view cameras for parking, 5.1 audio system..... it's just unreal. Even has electric curtains.
When I was a lad you got a three cylinder engine that you had to crank to start, wooden seats, and in the deluxe model, a roof. The entertainment centre was a mirror so you could see the people behind laughing at you. But we were grateful!

That cannot be cheap to run Hahaha.
I've never worked it out (because I don't want to know 😑) but I suspect it does around 11 to the gallon.

Figured I may as well scratch the itch before either:
A.) Everything goes electric and soulless
B.) The human race becomes extinct due to global warming/respiratory pandemic

Currently driving a Ford focus that has a leaking piston ring so it likes to occasionally misfire and drinks oil like there no tomorrow... am looking for a new car tho
now i have a new car... guess what.. it's another Ford Focus :ROFLMAO: although i upgraded to an estate this time and it has quite a few mod cons to it

mind you
No surprises that Ford stands for Fix Or Repair Daily :ROFLMAO:
no surprises as to what happened barely a month after i got the car :p lol

Today was my last day with my BMW 530D SE XDrive Touring. It has been the best car I have ever had. I am not sad, though, as an M Sport version has taken its place.

It is not bad for a diesel estate. It is quite easy to go fast without realising quite how fast you are moving., which could be bad for the licence.
The BMW big diesels are phenomenal, I've had a 335D (E92 version, so fairly old and a touch 'rough' by today's standards) and its still exceptionally rapid and you go from stopped to banned in no time at all if you're not careful. If you drive carefully, you can still get bonkers mileage for such a 'big' car.

Looking at changing out the car maybe next year, either looking at a 440i MHT or an M4 if the X-Drive versions are reviewed well (never owned a M series car so... well.. now's the time!).

This is my second XDrive Touring. The grip and traction seems very good. The roads are very twisty up here and can get pretty treacherous in winter. I have seen a few BMWs ‘parked‘ in a field due to failing to make a bend in winter conditions. One was a long way below the road and looked quite worrying.
