I have one on my '06XiT. I like it a lot, but I drive into the city a lot, and it is a great cover for my stuff. It is kind of cool, when I use my remote power hatch, the cover pops up slightly. ...

Does it have a spare? If so, it seems more likey that is did not come with RFTs. My '06XiT has a spare and no run flats.

Exhaust valve silencer

Hi,

I have a 530XiT that is great, but the exhaust is a little quiet for my tastes. I was considering a new exhaust, but then while exploring the underside of my car (I know, I love these cars),...

I also have a 2006 530xiT that has the sunroof leak. Mine was the right rear.

Cleaning the rear drains is an easy DIY, even if you do not remove the headliner. The rear drain tubes run behind the...

XiT

I just went through this when I bought my 2006 XiT in June, and here was my experience.
