Problems / Re: x5 3.0D Intermittant Power loss low REVS
« on: Yesterday at 07:31:53 PM »

If you put the fault for a BMW X5 in on you tube it says it's the egr loss of flow and there are a few how to clean it video clips on there.

So assuming you now have a new or a clean egr valve then you need to work through the process.

From below link the chap had checked that your turbo and injectors were okay and also the MAF is working, then it could be an egr pressure regulator value which was faulty which is on the egr (on an E70 and could be same on an E53 )

A couple of the other clips also showed that the hoses and seals were faulty with this error code.

Assuming this is a build to order then it will be cheaper to add to the build rather than as an extra afterwards.

I personally go for it. :)

Look forward to the pics in due course.

I think this the new way Bmw can now show how good the fuel consumption at over a 100mpg on the M5, as it now no longer has to visit a petrol station   :drive:  :))

I would try a post in the Buy sell section on here and or Pistonheads or you can always sell it via a Number plate dealer they take a share though.

Otherwise you could use Facebook or eBay are the other forums people use a lot.


General Discussion / Re: Most unique looking E53 for sale

I agree unique, not my cup of tea but as Lez said it probably a wrap so a new owner could undo the yellow, and it does have an lpg conversion which is a plus

From what I have gleaned from other who bought the M50d it was worth waiting for and will put a big smile on your face  :) when you drive it.

It may be worth contacting Jason At BWChiptune as I know when I was down there over a year ago they were looking at changing an E70 with xenon over to LED Headlights.

You can find his contact details in thee53 performance section

General X5 Forum (E70) / Re: BMW E70 2012 40d M Sport or F15 se 3.0 ?
« on: January 09, 2018, 05:15:42 PM »

I would say the newer F15 car is likely to retain more value, but I think you said it was an SE not sure how specked of if like the older E70 SE which had unpainted arches which didn't look too great when compared to the painted MSport.

Also as you say the road tax is probably cheaper on the F15, but you need to drive both. The 40d in my view is a better engine but Jason can always map the 3.0d for you :)


General X5 Forum (E70) / Re: New interior trims!!!!
« on: January 07, 2018, 06:37:10 PM »

Nice job on the trims what polish did you use?

And I would guestimate a good few hours depending on how easy the trims come out

Sorry to here the news never good at anytime and very easy for someone to do if not concentrating.

Are you not going through your insurance as it was the other parties fault. Hope you get it sorted soon.

Problems / Re: Steering
« on: January 07, 2018, 06:25:52 PM »

Sounds like a possible leak from the rack to me.

So worth checking the steering rack gaiters for any signs of oil as it could be the seals, it may even be worth loosening the gaiter and sliding away from the rack to check.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Congrats on your X3.

It may be that the lead only supports iPods not the iPhone and its worth trying one of those to see if works as the previous owner of my old e53 X5 put in denison lead but that only support the iPod.
