    After a long love/hate relationship with my swim through BMW ownership (M3 fun, X5 headache) I've finally landed back in the GM family. I recently purchased a 'new to me' 2010 Yukon Denali AWD after dumping an '08 BMW X5. I'll try and embed photos below. I really appreciated the X5 (when it worked!) but after both catalytic converters both went bad on the same day and the struts went quickly thereafter I just couldn't stomach spending the necessary money to fix it right. My wife and I wanted something slightly bigger, MUCH more powerful and similarly equipped. Enter the Denali which ticked all those boxes. I grew up driving Suburbans, Tahoes and Silverados. My first car/truck was a maroon 1500 (looked good in the college parking lot Whoop!).

    Anyway, I've got some questions about the new rig but I'll keep that for the appropriate part of the forum. I look forward to interacting with you guys sharing our experiences. The M3 forum was invaluable during my ownership and it looks like this forum is equally as helpful.

    Cheers and hopefully these pictures work!

    welcome, nice ride, you might want to steer away from photobucket that site has long since gone down the crapper, extremely extremely slow, lots of pop ups. ugh.

    You weren't kidding about photobucket. I haven't used it in years but they pulled my pictures quick. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks for the welcome guys!
