Can the new NBT play MP3s directly from a USB jump drive? Or do you need to still use an ipod/iphone with USB and Aux?

Magazine holder behind front seats broken.

Have anyone had this problem? The plastic anchors are broken and now the vinyl flap comes off. I checked REALOEM.com for a part but couldn't find anything. Any help is appreciated.

I don't think there's much to replace on a car with only 25k miles. You should have driven your X5 alot more. Most ppl reach the warranty mileage because time runs out.

Did your front tires rub some with the taller 275/45x20 ? I could hear mine rubbing when I had 275/45/20 on the front. Mostly pulling in and out of parking spaces. Not during normal driving.
