Mein Auto: 2004 BMW X5 4.4i
Thumbs down What is the matter with the control arms?

Hey everyone we have a 2004 X5 4.4i and a 2008 535XI. The X5 has about 116,000 miles and the 535XI has about 60,000 they were both CPO's when we bought them. We had to replace the control arms in the front and rear on the X5 about a month ago and it was $2600 dollars then we also had to replace the front control arms on the 535XI. The 5 series was still under CPO warranty so that was okay but still what is the matter with BMW and control arms? When we were getting the X5 repaired the dealership said they also had another E53 X5 having the control arms repaired. Why is BMW so bad at building control arms?
