General X5 Forum (E53) / Spare wheel use
« Last post by marinaman on Today at 12:43:46 AM »
Evening all

just a question, looks like the standard spare wheel is a 17” with a Michelin tyre on.
I keep reading threads about mixed tyres and affecting the boxes and gearbox etc
so. i take it . its safe to use this 17” wheel as a spare when required if you have a puncture but would its different tyre size etc not affect the autobox and drivetrain .
i dont suppose that BMW would provide a spare that is going to cause problems anyway but just wondered after all the reading on sizes, diameters, circumference and every other setting

On the centre console armrest ther will be two ways to open it. The cubby at the bottom which may be home to a 6 CD multi changer, and the top compartment which is just under the padded armrest.
See if there is a Bluetooth pairing button in this section.
If so you will have Bluetooth.
Also has it got the pop up screen/ satnav ? ( sorry just re read your post, as said business)
Also google BMW Vin decoder and put your last 7 digits of your Vin in to get the build spec. See if it has Bluetooth phone prep on the list 😀

Cayenne S, 440 bhp

But that’s over 100bhp down on the M. Surely the Turbo would be a better comparison?

That is the problem really. The new Cayenne looks very nice and is identical priced as the X5M after discount. A discount level of 21.5% on the X5 versus next to nothing (seems to be about £1500 on the Cayenne).

The X5 has more toys and more power, but is older. Hmm.

Which model of Cayenne are you looking at?
