Do you have security camera, if so check when tailgate popped open. I caught mine open 2-3 minutes before I get to my X5, which corresponds to me putting my keys in my pocked upstairs..

What I mean to say most people prefer the lack of logo. I am sure it's a nice quality, but I'd pay more to get one without logo, it just looks tacky. As for function, I am sure $10 shades function...

I believe in a recent discussion many people said they use the OEM one, but did not really care for big BMW branding on it.

In that case it really depends on what terms the previous owner dealt with the dealer, isn't there a thing like Carfax in Europe?
I guess that requires the previous crash to be reported.
Good luck...

Thanks for confirming.

Does it help to slide the cover more frequently, is it actually the grease on the interior cover or the glass's rail?

I don't feel any noticeable difference, and I don't find my steering light as a feather as I once did when I test drove an F15 before getting mine.

Thanks, looks like numbers are close to where they were when I got my X5 back in 11/14.
I did $874 on $69950 MSRP with no MSD (not allowed in NYS) with only DMV/1st month and bank fees down.
