  1. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey there fellow enthusiasts! This question has been bugging me for a while now :mad:: Does anyone know why some X5's start with 5's and some with WBA's? If they're all assembled in Carolina then why would they slap on a foreign vehicle identification number? :dunno:

    Sooo, a branch took my entire rear wiper arm and assembly off. I purchased a new arm assembly but I cannot get the damn bolt off - it seems like its corroded onto the bolt that comes through the rear windshield. I tried using a wiper arm puller but the stupid thing won't loosen. Tried WD-40...

    So I'm noticing dealers categorizing their 3 series (320i and 328i) inventory by whether or not it was assembled in South Africa. My question is that should consumers expect a discount from a car assembled in SA over an identical one assembled in Germany?

    There is a knocking noise coming from the rear passenger side of my car. Its not the shock absorber or mount. My friend and I think it is my CV Boots that need to be replaced due to them being split. My questions are if anyone has experienced this before, if replacing the boot will fix the...

    Hi all. I have a 1999 328i convertible and am told that I need to replace the tail light assembly due to corrosion. I have searched the internet and can't find any info on replacing the assembly.

  9. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    The BMW shop wanted to charge me $1,200:mad: for a new airbag control module for my 4.4i x5. Car-parts.com sold me a used one for 125:thumbup:. Now comes the tricky part and that is to install it. Car-parts said it was under the right rear seat but there is nothing there:tsk:. BMW says it is...
