X5 quality control

How's the X5 quality control? Are there any HPFP issues? I am considering one.

What year(s), engine, miles are you considering?

Most of us, here and on other boards, like the X alot...
There are several items that keep popping up on the jukebox, over time.

A car under oe warranty or, CPO is probably rec'd. Cars with very high miles
are going to be niggling, like any older car/BMW.

If you are looking for a 5MT or 6MT it limits you to the 3.0 and model years
only up through E53.
