    Hi! I have a problem with my X5 4,8 iS 2005. For the last year, the fault "self level suspension inactive" comes and goes in my display. The mechanic has been checking the system several times trying to fix the fault, everytime we think that now it is working, a few days after the fault comes...

    My issue persist with my 2006 BMW X5 4.8iS(4-Corner Leveling Sport Suspension). The passenger side sits lower than the driver side. All the bags have been replaced and the compressor is fine and there aren't any leaks. The SLSIACT code was gone for a while after replacing the front air struts...

    I have white smoke that comes from my tail pipes after it sits at idle for a little while(ex. like at a drive-thru or red light). There isn't any visible oil leaking from anywhere that either I nor two other mechanics know of. Could it be the oil separator valve, pcv valve, head gaskets, etc? Is...

    Hello everyone, i just got me a 2004 E53 4.8is. This is my first V8 car.. i had several BMWs in last 10 years (E30, E34, E39) and E53 was the next logical step hehe. The car is unbelievably powerful, nice interior, nice color, not so thirsty (if you are careful from time to time) BUT i have two...

    Hi Everyone, I recently had a 2000 BMW 528i die on me at 210k miles and now I'm looking to get an X5. I really like the E53 generation and would love to see what Bimmerfest members might have for sale. I'm located in the SF bay area. I've driven the 3.0i and it's just not enough power for me...

    I have a 2006 BMW X5 4.8is. I have been having the blue smoke on extended idle issue. I am pretty sure it is the valve stem seals, but wanted to make sure that I have correctly diagnosed the issue before taking the plunge. I usually see the smoke when I am in stop and go traffic, or going...

    Looking at a 2006 4.8is with 50k miles. Curious if this truck at $25k is worth it from a future maintenance standpoint. I have heard horror stories about tranny, engine, leaking valves, ect. Any information about maintenance issues for this model is greatly appreciated!
