Mein Auto: X5 3.0si
New 2007 BMW X5 3.0si

Hi Everyone,

Recently picked up an '07 X5 3.0si with 64k miles. Before picking this X5 up, I had an '08 323i. That was a very reliable vehicle with very little spent on it in repairs other than normal maintenance (some common repairs). I am wondering what everyone else's experience has been with the X5 3.0si model? Is it a reliable vehicle overall? What are some common issues? Having a 4.8i in the family, I know that their prone to many problems and upon purchasing this the dealer recommended to stay as far as possible from the 4.8i model. "Apparently" the 3.0si is more reliable!?!

The X5 drives like brand new, was a one owner and always serviced on time. 1st owner NEVER had any issues. Dealership confirms clean record with maintenance paperwork. I did spend $4K through warranty on a few components that needed changing most likely due to age of vehicle or mileage.

1) Radiator replacement due to coolant leak
2) Vanos Solenoids
3) Tail light assemblies (both left and right) (Common to most BMW's)
4) Valve gaskets (common to most BMW's)

How many miles can the X5's run for on average that are well maintained without any major mechanical problems.
