    I have a 2018 X3 xdrive and haven't put too many miles on it. Bought it early 2018 and it has about 3000 miles on it. Already had it serviced for once for a yearly oil change.

    Hey everyone, I went to AutoZone to check what the engine light was on for. Turns out the code is P12B8, which is the ambient pressure sensor overrun pressure too low. Does anyone know where this sensor is at? Im trying to see if I need to replace it or if its just a minor fix.

    I have a project 2001 X5. The last owner neglected and abused this poor car. One thing he did was remove LED lights from the console in an attempt to hide smog issues. I'd like to find the .125 / 1 8th inch square LED in the console but I can't find the bulb. It seems like an easy solder job...
