Two questions...

1. Where did you get your delete kit?
2. Did your CEL come on?
It's important to distinguish the difference between the vac lines and "deleting" as they are not the same thing. You can delete emissions related stuff from the vehicle but you still need to replace the vac lines if they are in need.

1. My EGR valve delete pipe is from Bimmertune
2. Yes, there are some codes and the CEL light but no limp mode and the X5 performs as it should. I had my OEM EGR valve plugged in and tucked to the side in the engine bay. This is a temp solution until I am fully deleted. IMO better engine health > CEL light.
