Not crazy at all! I traded my X5 for a new S60 T5 over two years ago. I know it's all personal preference, but I like the way the S60 drives so much more than the X5, and I just did not need a car as...

Really does not matter what brand or type of seat, these covers are universal. I bought them many years ago for a Subaru Outback. I no longer have my X5, but these covers work in both my Volvos just...

I have the sherpa plex covers. They are awesome, I use them when I go to the beach. The BMW seats are a bit tall, the covers will not cover the whole seat if you slip them over the head rest, so I...

Had the same feelings. Even though the X5 is an awesome car (SAV, SUV, whatever), it was just too big for me. I sold mine in January and went back to Volvo. Bought a 2012 S60 T5. I love their 5...

I ordered a set of the Weathertech liners last summer for a beach trip. Thought they were very "plasticky" and rigid. Good coverage except under the gas pedal. Had to put a large ziplock baggie over...

Did you have to change any settings for this? I've tried in my 2011, it shows the phone is paired already, but I get no sound. I was able to play Pandora if I connected through the USB port.

Programmed mine in a few minutes. First, learning the remote. Then, learning the rolling code. Works great!

Interesting, thanks! :thumb up: Either way, I felt the price to be reasonable, and that's something I would never attempt to do my self.

I recall the service advisor saying they had to drop the bumper to replace the fog light unit. Maybe that explains the cost?

I had one of mine replaced about a year ago at the dealer after a rock apparently cracked the lens, I believe it was around $250-$300, and was a unit, not just the lens. I think the dealer cost was...

Good to see someone else still using the iPod Classic! The touch does not have enough storage space, my iTunes catalog is all wav files. Takes a lot more space but it's CD quality sound.

My iPod goes dead occasionally, requires a "reboot", but I've not had a complete shut down. My iPod has never done that in my Volvo, so it has to be something with the X5 system.

Water drips on the seat edge seems to be the norm, water rolls off roof when door is opened. I recall seeing other threads about it. I keep a small towel in the door pockets to wipe it up.
