What do you think of the 2005 BMW X5?

I am thinking of a 2005 BMW X5 3.0d Sport Auto. I don't like the ride of the new version and think this one is better. What do you think of this car? Have you any review on it or can you direct me to one please? I'm not concerned about economy, tax or insurance, as I do only 15,000 miles per annum.

We need a large seven seater with boot space.

We are looking for a seven or eight seater MPV for a family with four small kids so we will be using four rear seats daily and often five. Worried that the standard seven seaters don't have enough boot space with all seats in use. Driving in the city mostly so wary of large minibus type vehicles. Also safety and reliability are priorities.

Our budget is about €25K (less if possible!). We are changing from a large estate so are used to a large boot, hence most of the seven seaters I've looked at just don't measure up in terms of boot space.

What would you recommend? Thanks

Where will I buy a tyre for my Kia Sportage?

I have just bought a Kia Sportage and I am looking to replace one of the front tyres. I only need one as the spare has not been on the car and is still new. I am looking for a Bridgestone 235/60 R16. Do you know who has this tyre at a good price?

Thank you
