    EDIT: figured it out, I found an option ($655) that was different than what the VIN decoders said($693). I changed that in the VO, then FA_Write to CAS, then SG_codieren to CIC. Hello, I just recently swapped my old CIC in my 2012 X5D with used one from a 2011 because it started rebooting...

    I replaced my belt tensioner about 5K ago and didn't notice anything wrong. Now the engine seems to vibrate a bit and the tensioner does move a little bit. How much should the tensioner move on idle ?

    Recently had to change bad fuel injector E70 with N55 engine. Ours is a 2011 model year. It seems there were some changes in the model of the N55 engine that year. From my research it seems models built before Sep 2010 had one version of N55 and after Sep 2010 had another version. How does...

  10. General BMW Questions
    I have an 09 x5 e70 with an n52. I noticed the car running rough at idle. So I shut it off, put a code reader on it, and the code that popped up was a pcm/ecm wiring harness code which seemed weird. I also noticed that the air boot right after the air flow sensor and filter was off so that would...

    I've read through all the misfire threads on here and anywhere else I could find over the past couple of weeks, but haven't found a solution to a misfire that has started occurring randomly. This may end up a little long, but I'll start from the beginning... Three weeks ago I was taking a road...

    Hey everyone. I have a 2012 e70 diesel that started making an odd sound yesterday while I was driving(beyond the normal diesel sound). The best way I can describe it is like a flapping or fluttering sound as I accelerate, almost sounding like bad exhaust. It seems to happen when accelerating...

    I got a 2011 E70 in 2013, and started browsing BimmerFest soon after... should have started before and I may have stayed away from the N63. Now that I am staring the DIY valve stem seal replacement, I decided to join. I have the parts ordered, and cameras set up, so wish me luck!

    Hello X5 owners, New to this forum. Can someone recommend me a good independent (not dealership) mechanic who can work on X5 (E70 3.5i) to replace valve cover gasket? What would be the cost of labor? Thank you RV
