68000km is is nothing for an X5. Just get the dealer to fix the screen. There is an iDrive setting which turns it off. Not sure how much a pre purchase would be but money well spent. Good luck.

I know that you are in a different country, but to have an X5 and to buy cheap tires, well I must be on another planet. Get rid of the X5 and drive something which costs less. Or borrow the $...

This was the second. The first was a similar issue on my X5, but a front tire and a standard 19" wheel, they paid but the tire wasn't as expensive. It still felt good though!

Good luck with the car.

Why not part it out? That might help lots of people fix their rigs. You could make some money instead of blowing it on a 7 year old write off then buy a proper one which has not been trashed.

I don't fully understand but is it correct that: he has bought a write off and plans to fix it himself?

I just moved house with the new X6 and a trailer + soft stuff inside. Luckily, we did it over a few weeks but the car swallowed some big loads and towed in temperatures of 40 Celsius .
