Exclamation New to E70 and loving it, but...

Just got my 2007 X5 3.0 from the dealer's shop. Fantastic ride, but i noticed a warning sign in the instrument cluster. A triangle with an exclaimation mark in it . Picture attached.

It on all through my trip home from the dealer.

Is something wrong or I just pressed the wrong button ( I did a lot of that)

Thanks

On the stalk on the left of the steering wheel, there is a little lever, cycle through it to see what the issue is. It could be something as simple as low washer fluid to something serious.

Low fuel for sure. You only have 51 miles remaining on current fuel tank.

Actually it is a secret indicator that you, my good sir, have been dutifully selected to paticipate in a lucrative oppoortunity. You see my name is Dunjame Sule, son of former major Gen Gumel Danjuma Sule, The late Nigeria's former minister of mines and power in the regime of the late former Nigeria's military Head of state, Gen Sanni Abacha

He married my mother on the agreement that my mother,Amina Fausat Sule, will maintain her family's name together with her children. Before he died in the German hospital on the 15th of November 1988 where he went to operate on the cancer of the knee, he fixed the Sum of $30,000.000.00 in the Central Bank of Nigeria under Intartrade Ventures Ltd on behalf of my mother. The 3 yrs maturity period placed on the money is due but the problem we are having now is that we lost the whole of the documents as a result of fire, which gutted our house 3 months ago.

Send me a PM, we can go over details.




PS Low fuel. Sorry, couldnt resist

The OP's X5 is obviously a lemon. Luckily for him, X5's sell for a ridiculous premium in Nigeria, regardless of mechanical condition. I am sure that if he asks nicely, Mr. Sule could import it for him and send him a cashier's check for twice what he paid for the POS.
