Yup. I bet if you charge the battery, CA will start to work again.

I love it. Burger claims 30+ HP and 30+ torques at the wheels and it is definitely noticeable to the point that when removed, I miss it. With my GTech Pro I can rattle off 4.7 sec 0-60s. Never...

Probably going to do the plug tomorrow if I can find one locally.

Did you have to gap it? If so, to what measurement?

Extreme low temps affecting fuel economy.

I just completed a 500 mile round trip and a lot of it was done in negative temps (Fahrenheit).

I was wondering how such temperatures have affected the fuel economy of other X5s especially N63s. ...
