I just installed mine (photo below) and used the new Tekonsha Prodigy RF. What a great innovation. It works perfectly, is completely transportable from car to car and doesn't require any in-car...

Rear bumper carrier (also called inner rear bumper reinforcement) off of a 2009 BMW X5. It should fit all late model X5's (2008 - current). Retail price is over $300. Get it now for much less.

I've got 3rd row seating but there's a built-in cubby box big enough for a can of slime + a small 12v air compressor just in case. Together they cost <$100...plus, there's always BMW assist or AAA.

I'm not an official BMW rep nor a lawyer but I can't imagine it violates your warranty. After all, if you swap out snow tires for the winter season that doesn't violate your warranty as far as I...

I've been very impressed with them. Definitely far quieter and better handling than the RFs I came from. With the 4.8, who knows about gas mileage and I can't imagine it really matters...if...

So I tried replacing the steering wheel with the heated version today. No luck. I had a shop replace the clock spring and re-install the wheel. When you press the heater button the light barely...

New tires...awesome!

Just had a set of the Continental Extreme DWS's put on yesterday to replace the Dunlop RFTs. Early read is that these tires are great. The car is tracking better, is far quieter and it doesn't seem...

Thanks again Zulu95. It looks like that part # is for an e53 x5. I did some more digging and it looks like I might actually be after part # 61319122381.

For anybody interested, you can see the...

The only option my rig doesn't have that I really want is the heated steering wheel. Does anyone know if the retrofit is possible?...and what it should cost?

I'm concerned about buying a heated...

If you go with...
