Hi Paddy,

We're presuming that by 2007 you mean the current shape BMW X5. If so there are a couple of things to watch for. A smoky exhaust as the engine warms up could mean a blown turbo seal, which could cost as much as €2,500 to fix. The electronic handbrakes can give trouble and make sure that recall work for the seatbelt tensioner, brake fluid leak and front airbags have all been completed.

Let us know how you get on.
