I don't know what it is with this oxygen sensor crap but I am about to turn in my current lease a 2008 x5 4.8i and in total I have changed oxygen sensors FIVE times in 3 years. Amazing and troubling.

Anyone else have 35d's with all these problems? I also have some electrical problem with the rear license plate light - on sometimes, off other times...
This is the most problematic car I've ever owned - do I just have a dog or is everyone else experiencing this too?
Just wanted to add if my new 35d has the same issues I am going to give up on BMWs. I mean between the above issues, a complete overhaul of the electrical system, 3 transmission firmware updates (and still not running right in my opinion) a problem with the electronic parking locking up TWICE, and a blown speaker lets just say my patience is ready to overcome my love for these machines. Like i said I hope my new 35d does better.

They created the Lemon law because of this SUV. If I didn't know better I would have thought my wife had a thing with the BMW service manager.
