Hi folks,

I have a 2012 e70 x5 35d (0b88972) with 8s4 disabled and the 5ac option. Do you know who can recode my car? I'm getting mixed info on whether or not this can be done on my x5.

Sounds like front suspension issues to me. Check your front end, if the clunking is in the steering it's most likely your tie-rods. I replace the entire assembly (inner and outer) whenever I do mine.
