    I was finishing up a valve cover gasket swap when I broke a small clip the overflow oil line. This is the line that attaches to the injectors. I am using this name so we have a common understanding of what to call it since that is what it is called on RealOEM. It is part #12 in this link...

    Good Afternoon, I know this has been all over the forms, but it seems there are no alike problems. I have a 2011 BMW X5 35D with 186K miles on her. I have a history of replacing the following DPF, NOX, EGR Cooler, Pee Tank, Throttle body, Glow Plugs and gaskets. These items were replaced...

    Anything I should pay careful attention to with regards to an "exit service appointment" before getting to 50k miles?... No issues so far with it. Thanks!

    Hey all, After doing a lot of reading on here, I am seeing many variations of problems with the X5d. What I am not seeing is a description similar to mine to help me diagnose my problem. The vehicle will start fine. On a random occurrence it will stutter/shudder. Just a minor misfire. It...

    Getting ready to order X5d and need to make a decision b/w Extended Merino vs Nappa Design Package. Planning to get Luxury Seat Package (Perforated/Ventilated + Multi-Contour) I tried Merino Leather in a new 7 series and it's vey very soft. Buying the car for mostly long drives and am looking...

    Hi - relatively new to Bimmerfest and appreciate any advice/experience. I plan on towing with a new to me 2011 x5d which looks like it had a factory hitch installed (factory cut out) and has instructions on the hitch sticker 6000# max towing, 600# tongue weight. And also an interesting pic...

    My 2011 X35D has a whine which happens when the engine is revved. I'm about 90% convinced it is coming from the alternator. I believe the bearings are going out. It might be an idler pulley or a belt tensioner but unfortunately I doubt it. Once I'm convinced it's the alternator, I plan on...

    Took my 2014 X5 diesel in for regular service and the dealer performed a "recall as outlined in bulletin--program egr". Does anyone have any information on this service action? Based on limited driving since this service action it appears that fuel economy has dropped.

    Works perfectly.

    I apologize in advance for the length of this! A few days before Christmas we started experiencing issues starting our 2011 X5d w/ around 31,000 miles. The starter sounded strong but it would crank for up to 7-8 seconds before it actually started. The time required to start varied and it did...

    Hi All, New to BimmerFest, but love it already. In fact, I got my wife on it too because the car is for her! I paid $55,900 out the door for the following: X5 - $50,450 tax - 3.2% (VA) Maintenance Pkg Extension - $2495 though 8/14 (car started service 8/10) Bumper to Bumper - through 8/12...

    It took me two weeks and 5 dealers but I finally negotiated an at invoice price on a 2012 x5d. Persistence pays off. I got invoice price as according to
  15. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Picked up an alpine white x5d from a dealer on Dec 02. My deal was invoice price - all BMW incentives. Got the dealer to take out MACO charges from his invoice, which brought the invoice price to match with what I got from bmwconfig. Immensely thankful to members and discussions in this forum...

    Minnesota currently has a mandate that diesel fuel must be B2, and in May 2012, that moves to B10. To make matters worse, May 2015 will require a B20 biodiesel. Now, my 35d allows for B7, but no higher. Will BMW address this? Is my X5 in any danger because of this?
  17. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Probably should have come to this forum last week, but just closed a deal on a 2011 X5d in the Cleveland/Akron Ohio area. Car is in production. I need some thoughts on whether or not I got a good deal. MSRP $61075 - $3500 ECO - $2,400 dealer = $55,175 Selling price MSRP = $61,075 Premium Pkg...
