Did the first one, car ran great around the complex, but was smoking. Opened hood, caught fire, luckily I was parked beside him and had an extinguisher in the trunk. Melted the old cover, he had to buy a new one. LOL. He worked I watched the 2nd round.
Also replaced the front struts and hardware on the same vehicle.

I have done those two tasks on my wife’s X5. I am pretty confident I can tackle most of the medium complexity issues that the car may present. Get it and share some pictures. Good Luck!
