Thanks everyone. I knew WD40 was a worthless lubricant, but thought it was "funny" that people still actually try to use it as such... @Ken - I'll add the Wurth TG to my next order! Thanks a bunch!

Sunroof track lube

You might want to flush the coolant... If this is a new-to-you ride, there's no telling what the prior owner did. Maybe there's an abundance of pure water in the system.

I think it looks awful... but then I drove one. It was pretty impressive and the first electric vehicle I ever drove. It can REALLY giddy up....but certainly not my style.

X5 with Rear Seats that fold 100% flat?

My Dad is looking for a X5 but one if his "must have's" is a model that has rear seats that fold 100% FLAT.

He's had a X5 a few years back and it did not have seats that folded flat.

Any one...

Maybe this will be a dumb comment... if so, I apologize... Is there any chance that the AC "red/blue" blend knob is actually broken and possibly stuck in the somewhat "not blue" direction??
