That's what i thought it was at first since my keys were in my pocket. The last time it happened, my keys were in my hand and I was only holding the key for my other car.

Well my wife drives the x5 more often than I do, and she usually leaves for work before I do, so it's not that often that I walk near it with my keys.

Car unlocks and windows roll down by themselves? What's going on?

So the past couple of days when I went outside to get into my other car, the X5 (2008 3.0i) unlocks and the windows roll down. Basically this happens anytime I go near it with the key. It's not doing...

Guess I missed the magnetic valves part of that description.

Either way, it's pretty amazing how cars these days can adapt their suspension to the road conditions

HID headlight turned pink!

So my right side HID bulb is pink instead of white. I assume this means I need a new bulb? Should I replace both at the same time?

I was looking up prices for an OEM replacement and it looks like...

Just picked up a X5 this weekend!

Just picked up a 2008 X5 3.0i this weekend. We are very excited. We traded in our 2004 X3 3.0i for it.
Very pleased with the build quality and all the new gadgets our X3 didn't have!
