BMW E70 X5 - DIY and How-To Thread

I figured it may help to start indexing some of the DIYs and how-to to help new member navigate the website and hopefully cut down on the repeating questions

I encourage everyone to use this thread to point out relevant DIYs and How-to which I will then collect and update the initial threads: I'm really looking for contribution from everyone to make this useful (I don't want it to be MY thread, hopefully it can become OUR). I recommend everyone to refrain commenting or starting a new DIY here: it's best to comment each DIY in it's original post or by creating a new post for a new DIY. This is just for indexing purpose.
