General X5 Forum (E53) / Re: Cd dvd holders
« on: August 26, 2018, 12:53:47 PM »
Anybody tell me what the set of Cd or dvd holders are for in the bottom of my centre consul please

I’m going to hazard a guess,

I believe they’re for keeping cd’s or dvd’s in to allow variation and change........

That is a fantastic aftermarket install, “very” professional look and an amazing attention to detail, very surprised at the interior quality, loving the roof lining tuck im assuming that was replaced?
The switch is very VAG, though blends in well
Very nicely done

I’d check my if the airbags are interchangeable between door cards first
In that, will the doorcard allow inflation without sending shrapnel flying in the event of need ?

I’d be inclined to revisit your list of must haves, consider adding HBA & Adaptive Xenons as priority
I know of the perfectly specced car with 4 out 5 + the above, sadly its a five seater.... ;)

General X5 Forum (E70) / Re: Genuine roof bar fitting
« on: August 01, 2018, 12:19:52 PM »
Unfortunately not.  I was hoping it would be possible to tell from the design of the fitments but after spending some time on eBay etc looking at pics closed vs open roof bars I can’t tell the difference!

I’d agree, those bars are for the raised Se type rails
After zooming in on the picture & focusing on the lower plate, that’s definately different and not correctly seated to the rail, mine sits almost flush to the rail and has a small locating tab.
Whereas by your picture there appears to be a large rubber footplate on the lower side

That doesn’t look right
For reference, I have my rear bar located at the rearmost door gap, allbeit some one say I have them set too far apart
In your case, if you remove the rear bar, unscrewing the clamp fully,  on the underside, at each end, you’ll find x2 bolt heads that run on elongated holes to allow adjustment, loosen these and offer bars back in rail, ensuring the pad sits flush
If possible nip up the bolts, then remove and tighten refit bars and recheck footplates
Unfortunately, I can’t provide pictures sorries

Note : I also tighten my bars in stages, two turns alternate sides holding the clamp under the rim of the bar until torqued circa 7nm with the fitting tool
