X5 Rollershade

Anyone know a good place to get a right rear door Rollershade?

Look in the engine bay where the steering column comes out of the firewall. There's a u joint exposed there on the steering linkage. Spray it with lithium grease.

Best tires for 2003 X5 4.4i

I've got the sport package. I've had two sets of Hankook's in the two years I've had it. They seem to do well but I'd like better tread wear.

Any recommendations?

2003 X5 Steering problem

My '03 X5 has developed a catch in the steering. The noise appears to be in the column and clicks and catches when turning. There is no fluid leaking and no noise from the rack. Any ideas?
