I have a 2014 X5 35d with 67K miles. It's been indoor garaged since I bought it and always have done the required maintenance. I love the car and would like to own it for another 100K miles. I drive only 8-12k per year so that will be about 8-10 years. What do I need to do to get there, besides...
having some challenges with the car.
- Checked vacuum lines, seems fine (vacuum pump gives and holds 28 in/HG Vacuum in the line)
- Changed the 3 solenoids
The on/off for Compressor bypass plate
The variable for Turbine Control Valve
The variable for Wastegate...
2009 e70 x5 35d started throwing some codes today. Cleared them to see if it was a one time issue and they came back. Keep in mind that the car was not thrown into limp mode and there was no sign of any issue just the engine light. They came when the car was parked. I am going to check the...
So while I had my NOx sensors replaced two/three weeks ago under BMW's warranty, the technician told me I most likely needed and SCR (not under warranty). He told me take the car, drive and see if the CEL comes back and it did several days later. I cleared the code and forced a regen on the...
Bit of a heart stopper;
Autobahn 240 kph, uphill, slight judder then no power, rev’s at 0. No reaction from accelerator, Electrics OK, hazards on and drift to hard shoulder.
Attempt a re-start, engine starts, then stops. Time to abandon the car, lock and unlock, attempt a re-start - engine...
New to the forum and new to BMW, we recently purchased a 2011 X5 xDrive 35D. Great little SUV/SAV whatever they wanna call it. But I cant leave well enough alone. For some back ground info i have custom tuned our vehicles myself for the past several years and have also ventured into doing...
Looking for some clarifications if possible. Been reading the forums and I got analysis paralysis.
Been having some fun trying to pass smog and I think I'm close however I can't figure out the following:
1) Can my 2012 X5 35d pass smog test with the " PM Filter " still not set? Talking...
I've been having injector failures. I replaced #5, then #1 failed, and now #4 is giving me grief. I decided to pull the remaining injectors and have them tested. When I did, on three, I found a silver shim in addition to the copper gasket. Any one encountered this?
I see a note in the NewTIS...

Cycle the power it resets and is fine. Persistent cel. Took

I know many do NOT use additives and some do. This is not to start a additive argument.
I do use certain additives depending on my own research.
That being said when I first bought the 35d, I had heard great things about Opti-lube. Also heard it was a waste of money based on an outdated Spicer...
This has been discussed in several places, but I cannot find through much searching BMW forums and even factory specs in several magazines and websites. Can someone tell me for sure, what year the BMW x5 35d changed from a 6 speed to an 8 speed transmission.
A friend call with a 2012 and even...
I bought my car brand new back in august 2015, almost 4 years ago. The car currently have 66K miles.
About 6 months ago @ 60K, the check engine light turned on and the car was giving an error code
P02D3 $07E8 "Cylinder 4 Fuel Injector Offset Learning At Max limit"
I did reset the...
I changed my oil for the first time today. The recommended oil top up was 7.3L but to be safe I've only added 7L while the car is up on a ramp. After dropping the car to flat ground level, I wanted to add the 0.3L, But my Idrive and Dipstick is NOT the same. My dipstick is showing...
I tried searching around but unable to find any visual representation on the installation of the Oil catch can for my Diesel X5.
Do people add one for these trucks? If so, where can I get a step by step on how to diy one?
Everywhere I look people keep saying just go with the "Feel". I don't know what Feeling that is so if anyone know what the Torque specs for drain plug on 2012 x5 e70 35D please let me know?
I thought that I had read, that you can add a 3rd party adaptive cruise control to a 2018 BMW X5 Diesel.
I would be willing to pay a thousand dollars for the option.
My i3 has a great adaptive cruise control.
I wish that the X5 did too.
Just found out, no more Diesels
