Could be an air leak causing your shaking or fuel delivery problem. CHeck for air leaks and check fuel pressure.

The parts are like slightly more than 150$(79$ each from oem bimmer parts & 107$ each from dealer) and an indy will probably do the job for about half of that parts and labor if you cannot DIY do not use a dealer use a reputable independent bmw shop.

Shaking problem

Finally I did it its was too hard challenge to me because this's my first time to done I job like that and I did search in google and YouTube but there's no thing about X5 , any way ..

Tools & steps
1- Patience and taking your time !
2- take the front wheels out seat the car at two stands make sure it's secure ,,,
3- take the two underneath covers ,,,
4-take the engine mount screws out each mount has Two screws and one Nut in the top of the mount ,,,
5- and now you have to left the engine up and take the old mounts out and install the new ones BUT you need to take the Left side CV axle out because its will touch the car body and will not allow you to left the engine enough !!!
6- and you need to remove the Transmission mount screw out its has only one screw to let the transmission little pit down so when you left the engine the Transmission will not hinder the engine to move up so you will have enough access to the engine mounts.
NOTE : you gonna need extension at less 18 inches to reach the engine mounts nuts from the top , for me I used 24 inches its was very helpfully ,,,

let me know if you have anymore questions ,,,,,
