No need to move it to e83 section. All 4x4 bmw's share same system. 2008, n47 engine. Xdrive problem will throw airbag light as well as 4x4. Start with simple: get some faulty codes. Could be abs/steernig sensor, worst  case scenario: Transfer Box.

Get the engine wiring checked. Snapped prop could have damaged main engine harness.

Mpowerrob, my advise: change the garage. They dont know what they do. First: code from transfer, now: code from abs. E53 is a simple car. Grinding sound will be gone..for sure...4x4 light on so no 4 wheel drive, so its same as driving without vtg plug. Change the garage please...

I didn't say they improve transfer boxes. The system is all new. No point going into details. Type in google: Atc700 vs Atc450. Unfortunately, while they succeed on tyres tolerance and system response, they fail on clutch design hence judder/vibration. Its not only x5's. x3, x6, x1, 1,3,5,7 series share same problems.

E70 lci are not so sensitive for bad tyres. Judder/vibration at low speed=transfer box. Remove fuse 92 (30A), and test drive it.

Hi smee,
I was asking the question on rolling circumferance and I do not want to sound disrespectful to any member. I do not know the rolling circumference tolerance for the X5 E53. If nobody knows it here I am sure it will come out on another forum as I have not found it on here. Maybe the wrong search string? It is certainly not written in the info I have.
I do firmly believe the manufacturers of cars and tyres are in bed together. 4 tyres from the same manufacturer with the same tread depth and correct tyre size should not be a problem? The special rating from what I have learned is car manufacturers and tyre manufacturers trying various combinations. Promises of higher tolerances. But for sure their is no special tyre line making a brand specific tyre.
Please correct me with a link to the information and I will be grateful.
A post from pistonheads formu explains it all:
Apparently the MO (Mercedes Approved) and the BMW * are to do with rolling diameter: quite a few BMW are with staggered wheels, so in order to keep the rolling diameter identical but with different tyre sizes front/rear the MO and * are meant to tweak the sizes ever so slightly to ensure minimal differences.

Even more important on the xDrive BMWs where the centre differential takes the brunt of any differences between front and rear (my X3 has 235/50/18 front and 255/45/18 rears)

For a normal RWD BMW I would be more concerned about getting some premium tyres than the * ones.
