Mein Auto: X5 e53 3.0i 2006
Do you maintain your x5 e53 yourself?...Your experience appreciated!

I wouldn't service an x5 at home. You need the right tools, and a specialised BMW computer system for diagnostics, including a super clean environment (garage with hydraulic lift) to service the car and its sensitive components, many of which need to be dust free and cleaned with specialised fluids when opened. I don't pay $190AU per hr for a master BMW authorised mechanic for no reason. Proper service means your BMW will last many years with only minimal maintenance, which in the end, will cost you much less than if you tried DIY service, which for many, end in tears and a great loss in resale?
