Mein Auto: BMW '03 X5 Die and KOMBIS
QSilver7

It's probably been said before but I would just like to thank QSilver7 for all his help on this forum.

His knowledge and readiness to help everyone is amazing.

It's just so nice to be able to ask a question and get an answer and photos in a lot of cases.

My X5 is always scaring me with problems big and small but most we have been able to fix ourselves, which is good as the nearest BMW dealer is a $450 tow away. A $34 fuel relay replacement cost us $1,100. I don't want to have to go there again if possible.

Thank you, I still have a few things that need attention so I will be asking here first.

You're welcome...or as an old co-worker used to say..."don't thank me, just thank God (Allah, the Creator, the Universe, or Deity of your choice) that I'm here today to give what I have to share.

I have the same philosophy. I don't know much about my X5 but happy to share any information in any areas I do know about.

Glad you are on this forum.

Yes, I agree. QSilver7 is definitely one of the MVP's here. I think of him as the "thread killer" since often I see some questions, debate, incomplete answers, incorrect answers, guesses, etc. ... and then he posts the 100% solid answer with documentation to back it up and the thread dies. Awesome.
Thanks QSilver7

Hahaha..."thread killer"...that would make a great handle. I'll keep that name in my mental rolodex...perhaps to be used sometime in the future.

My next 'How to' will be on front windows, both stuffed so I hope he can kill that thread too when I post it. We have a guy on our Kombi Club that is our QSilver7, what he doesn't know about Kombis no one does.

It is so good to have experts that share information. I live in a country village in Northern NSW, Australia and a BMW was probably not the smartest vehicle to purchase due to the lack of local repairers but I didn't want a farm ute. This forum has saved me thousands of dollars in repairs over my two year ownership. Unfortunately I bought with my heart and not my head and it is a bit of a lemon, but bit by bit with forum help we have been able to fix most things. I love the X5, it just hates me.
