Are you having overheating issues. If not don't worry about some pressure left in the system. I've noticed over the years that there is some in the system even after the car sits overnight.

Make sure they are not Chinese axles as they only last about 40k if your lucky. I would go to FCP Euro or another supplier and get GKN axles. They are as good as BMW.

Just make sure you get a different DME not the one you have repaired. I don't think the ram is replaceable. A few years ago nobody was repairing the X3 DME's.
