FYI - We have a F25 X3 35i M Sport and F15 X5 35d.

My wife prefers the X3, much faster, sportier, louder, twitchier steering, choppier ride, zips through traffic, better in the city, etc. Small...

There is no way to turn off the headlight washers. However, I had a problem with them in my X3 and coded them off (permanently). You change them from "Aktiv" to "Nicht Aktiv". I'm sure the X5...

Wow - thanks for posting the service manual pages. I'm shocked you have to remove the fender to replace the windshield washer reservoir.... Not exactly easy to service these things :)

If it's like my X3 (I'd check but it's -15 right now), it would be in your passenger side fender. Very difficult to get at. You access the bottom side of the reservoir (and pumps) via the wheel...

Yes - I believe all Xenon lights on the F15 X5 are adaptive / steer in the direction you point the wheel. It's so subtle you don't notice it initially - but once you have it it's tough to give up...
