  1. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    When I recently decided to purchase a semi-lightweight travel trailer, I assumed it would be an easy thing to add a hitch with full trailer electrical and brake functions to my 2015 X5 35d. Little did I know I was wading into one of the more controversial and complex aspects of owning an X5...

  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey, I’m not sure if this has been posted before as I am unable to find a thread about it already. Long of the short, my E60 was having a minor fuel leak on the passenger side of the tank and I had it replaced. While driving down the highway a few nights later, the iDrive said something along...

    Hi, I wanted to share my recent towing experience on my 2014 X5. I researched a lot about the towing abilities of the truck before buying it.
