    Guys, I'm at my wits end with my 2002 BMW X5 3.0L. I purchased it for $10k two years ago (92,000 miles on it) with the understanding it needed some work. Overall, it was still in really good shape on the exterior and my mechanic said it didn't look too bad under the hood either. One previous...
