from my past experiences with the AUC warranty, I'm surprised they didn't change it ?? I was about 10 months into mine a few years back when I had an E70 very similar to yours, It was coming up to 6 years old and the battery was starting to give up, so I booked it in to have a new one fitted and was quite happy to pay for it which is what I thought was going to happen. When I went to pick car up and sort out payment, I was told that it was covered and the whole idea of the AUC warranty was that I didn't have to pay for anything in the covered year as they expect it to be all good for that, so as said, I'm surprised  :'(

Have you tried a reset of the roof ?. With ignition on, press the roof button, and continue to hold until the roof, has gone through all its cycles, at least a couple of minutes. Hope this helps. This helped me when my roof refused to close, with your symptoms, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLg3yR8Z2PE

yes I have seen a few now on you tube but its now booked in for day at Sytners to be looked at with a few other jobs so I will leave it to them to sort now just in case of any further problems. Hopefully it might be all it needs as it only done it 3 times now in 4 months but thanks for reply

I looked at it this way when I last took it out...if something bad does happen and it goes into thousands ££££££'s... then paying £250 ex will seem like a bargin  ;)

 Half the trouble is getting it not to work properly when in there hands  >:( but I did video it on my phone which lasts about a minute and half of me trying to close it and it just pops back up, so hopefully I can show and send it them as I had to once with a problem with the sat nav on my old E70 I owned.

Its due brake fluid change in April so might get it in early and hopefully get both sorted on same day.

Bmw want 2.5k to extend mine I think I will take my chances !!
that seems high.. what year and spec and mileage is your car out of interest ?
I renewed on my last X5 when the auc warranty ran out and it was around £1200 for top cover with the highest excess but was told it was due to the car having done more than 60000 miles. I paid it but didn't really need to use it.
I now have a newer X5 with less than 60000 miles and will be interesting to see what its gonna be this time ?? I was going to give it a miss but ive owned this X5 (F15) about 4 months and all is good apart from the pan sunroof will not close some times from the tilt ?? will close later but bit worried of this but gonna get it checked out soon.

just seen you have E70 4.0D 2011.... what's mileage still ??

Hi all, just a quick one. Sometimes after having my roof in the tilt position, it will not close ?? It tries to come down but goes back up ?? It has closed later after trying again after about 15 mins on 1 occasion. I also tried it from my key fob to see if the switch was not working right but still it did same ?? Still less than 3 years old so covered but any ideas please ?? Will trust what you guys tell me more than the Stealers for some strange reason  :))

I had a 2.0 D X line 65 reg for 2 years almost. Very economical car to run and drove very nice in town and on long runs, only got rid as I got chance to get back in a well spec X5. If I had to pick a fault, it would be the old fashioned gear lever which they use on this X1, just lazy really BUT when you've had the electronic one you will understand but saying that the 8 speed box worked well after cluncking it into drive lol  ps stratstones sold it within a week off putting in on sale £24600 with 12k on clock

« on: January 09, 2018, 09:50:41 PM »
Hi, I've owned both now and been running the F15 since Oct 2017. Both were 3.0D M Sport but the F15 is defiantly a lot quicker yet better on fuel and road tax  :blink:
I had a choice of a 2014 with less miles or the one I bought which is 2015 with a few more miles and better speck. I thought that in 3 years or so when its time to sell, the slightly newer one should be worth more as we only do about 6-8k a year so it will bring the miles into line with average. Saying that I've never drove a 4.0D but I'm more than happy with power that's on tap. Still slightly bumpy on the F15 but a lot better than the E70 was but gonna ditch the run flats when they need changing me finks

Personally I don't get stuff like this now in my older age.! I have a 3.0D F15 X5 which I'm more than happy with for speed, acceleration and so on...... as I was with my older X5 E70 I owned. If I wanted a bit more poke, its easy, I would just buy a 4.0 D next time and then if you still want more poke you can get the 5.0 D. These days now, you got to be so carful messing with engines as there all so complicated and there is so much that can and does go wrong and end up costing ££££££££'s
