Nice vehicle. I just detailed my X5 getting ready for the long Winter, and it really does feel and look great. Enjoy your X5.

No idea. Try posting a video or sound clip so folks can take a look. Could be anything from a pulley to starter?

OK. Glad you don't mind the back and fourth with them. I'll take a look at Amazon since we already are prime members. Thanks.

Good point. My factory warrant hasn't expired yet, but I may explore extended warranty as others have suggested. The big issue is the time factor related to the repeated service issues. Thanks.

Thanks for responding. I do like your boat towing V8 Volvo. I own mine outright, but I have had a fair share of service visits. While everything was paid for by BMW, as I started looking back, I've...

Happy Wife, Happy Life. And regarding the mirror, I get that too. The RX is smaller than the X5, but even though GX is larger, the interior felt small. Noticed most about the space between seat and...

Nice Ard! I may keep it going too. Just not certain. But what would you shop for today, if X5 were gone?

Check your insurance plan first. I always had glass coverage, so it isn't an issue. No deductible required.

Good luck with the repair and good fortune you were not injured. Not to take thread in different direction, but curious. Did the accord driver get a ticket? Hopefully the driver was insured.

I like the dark grills. Rims nice too, even with the curb rash. Hey, curb rashes and divorce happens. Hang in there.

I'm likely taking a break from the BMW after the warranty expires. Hope the XC90 comes out with V8 by then or will suck it up and go with an F150 tricked out.

I don't know, but assume your mileage is high or this would still be under warranty for another year, right?
