Big Difference

I went from a 2005 X3 6-speed manual to a 2007 X5 4.8i, both purchased used. I love both cars. Had one significant failure on the X3 (X-drive actuator motor) and none so far on the X5 after 9...

I had similar problems with my presets. Even after attempting to reprogram them they didn't work. But something changed and today they're working just fine again.

Desert

I'm in the desert Southwest, so the temp change from outside to garage isn't much and it hasn't rained here in about 6 weeks.

Treo 700W

I had the dealer take a look but all I got was their "not compatible" response. They did claim that I have the latest firmware. Anyhow, I suspect that the problem is at least partly to blame on the...
