New Pictures

OK I unstacked and unwrapped the tires to get new pictures.

It must be a production change as my 2010 D I got in April works perfect. If fact zero problems. Back in 07 when I got the 4.8 the auto opening hatch was not even available due to long delays. They...

You need to talk to BMW NA and push this issue. I had a 07 4.8 that was terrible. I ended up with a trade asist to a 10 35D. The SUV ended up being no cost to me. It is also perfect with zero flaws....

Both my X5 have had it. I prefer the hood, front bumper, front of side mirrors and this time inside of door handles. Keeps marking from fingernails down. I would never get a new car without it now.

0 to 60

Not sure about the 5.0 but my 4.8 had a listed 0-60 time of 6.4 and the 35 D is listed at 6.9 seconds. On the other hand my overall MPG was 13 with a lot of stop and go. I traded over for that...

Loaner

So one could never move and get a loaner then? I bought mine in a city 30 miles away to get a better deal but never had an issue with a loaner. It has never been the same model but BMW.
