Default Hello, new 520D owner

Hello, new 520D owner here.

Purchased a E60 520D SE, 2007 LCI model, 71k miles.

Stunning car to drive.

Looking at upgrading the ICE to have USB connectivity, along with adding leather seats - as I'm not a fan of cloth seats.

Some details/options it came with.

Have updated to leather seats already, was a great opportunity to give the carpet underneath the seats a really good clean.

I have run an ISTA-D check on it, looks like I need to replace the glow plug controller unit, along with replacing the air-con condenser. Other than that, I think everything else is working fine.
