Mein Auto: X5 Diesel xDrive35d
Agree with Armand . . . overall I am very happy with my X5 diesel. I had one sensor replaced at ~15,000 miles . . . apparently there was a recall on this particular sensor, BMW was trying to work it into normally scheduled maintenance, mine did not last until the next scheduled visit. I also had the rear camera cable replaced - rear cam went out when they replaced the sensor, my guess is the software somehow got corrupted when they installed the sensor . . . Dealer insists these are two separate issues. Finally my front passenger side door stared to "creak" around 4,000 miles . . . Dealer installed a Teflon tape and the creaking sound is completely gone. The car is now 14 months old and has over 21,000 miles . . . zero problems (we live in the Bay Area - mild climate) and the X5 drives extremely well. Very happy with this X5 diesel.
