I was one of those E39 owners (who hated the E60 design). In fact, I kept it for 12 years and when I finally pulled the trigger on the new F10, I hated the way it drove. THe steering was horrible,...

It's very sad about the new tranny not being adopted in the US...especially since they are built in the US!

Curious why... US X5 35d vs EU X5 40d

For 2013, the US still had the X5 35d with a six speed automatic and the European version is a X5 40d (same engine with tweaks) and an 8-speed transmission????

We (the US) got...

re: wiring backup camera to existing Nav

I'm not sure if you monitor this (or get emailed), but I recently bought a CPO 2011 X5 35d. The options are strange, so I assume it was custom ordered. It has navigation, but no backup camera. ...
