Not true. Think about it -- if this were true, you'd lose your american coding when the battery was disconnected as well. I had my previous E70 X5 coded, and never had a problem at the dealer when...

My son fell asleep at the wheel and hit a tree. Amazingly, he wasn't hurt, and the car could be driven home. The radiator isn't even leaking, but the front end is a mess. The engine runs fine, and...

Putting the X5 in Sport mode definitely changes the steering feel. It also changes how it accelerates; it definitely holds gears longer, and I think it also changes the throttle response. I'm...

Including the two applicable discount programs available at the time (USAA/Military, and Drive Credit, which combined were worth $2000), I paid $1000 below invoice.

Probably not the cheapest alternative, but I'm pretty sure BMW makes a pet cover for the rear seat (you aren't talking about the 3rd row seats, are you?). I had one for my 740, years ago. It was...

For some reason, Parking Assist isn't available on the diesels until April production -- that's why it's not showing up yet on the website. Its definitely not standard.
