    My car

    I owned an X5 for two years and enjoyed every minute of it.

    Our 3.0d Sport was twice driven to the south of Spain, the miles reeling off effortlessly.

    Once there, it tackled every imaginable kind of road and mountain track with great enthusiasm and impeccable manners.

    Selling it was a very hard decision but it had to go for financial reasons. Two years later, business is better and the family can't wait to welcome back their long-lost friend this January.

    Again, a diesel Sport (more powerful) and with some significent extras for another long summer in Spain (new panoramic sunroof, xenons that see around the corner and a host of other little extras to show how much we missed it.)

    We cannot wait, once again, to glide imperiously over the rutted track that claims to be our road - perhaps sparing the odd glance for our beleagured neighbours as they lurch in the most unseemly fashion from pothole to pothole. Perhaps my conscience will allow the stray thought of 'there go I but for...'. Seriously though, I wont get smug, just enjoy the ride while I can!
