If anyone is looking for a perfect example a bit further up the price bracket, mine will be for sale in a couple of months. 55 plate 3.0D with 81k.

I like the sound of that. So the Warranty Direct one is recommended as a rule?

Problems / Rear Wiper Motor Leak
« on: February 21, 2018, 07:39:33 PM »
I’ve noticed over the last few days a weeping down the boot below the wiper arm. I assumed it was the water jet leaking but I’ve disxovered today it comes from the top of the rear screen! Upon further investigation it appears to be oil coming out of the wiper arm. Now I can only assume this is leaking from the motor. I’ve had a search but can find no other cases of this happening. Has anyone ever come across it before?

Google got me a link to a Range Rover forum where it happened to someone and he stripped the motor down and put a new o-ring in to stop the leak.

What way does it work if you have the warranty in place for a year, but during that year you go over the 60k marker? When you renew next year the price will be the greatly inflated one for cars with over 60k.

Can you switch to monthly installments during the year, then let them continue on a rolling basis or do you have to re-quote every year regardless of how you pay?

Yup, it was parked round the back of his place waiting for an engine- not an easy thing to find either!

I was pricing warranties today and a BMW one is £1405 which seems mental when the warranty on my E93 335 was £500 odd.

Considering an upgrade to a 40d myself. Is timing chain failure a common enough issue on them, or would it not be frequent enough to put you off buying one? My specialist has 1 in for a new engine at the minute which concerned me somewhat!

An engineering company would be able to machine the centre bore for any E70 owners.

Yup, correct. Just on the front wheels though strangely!

I would’ve thought so too, unless something had happened to the rest of the system during the period you had the Eonin fitted.

Is this Paul? Is it the screen you bought from me?!

Did this replace a broken screen or the non Nav radio?

A Kenwood or Pioneer with fascia adapter can be had for the same price as an xtrons and is a FAR superior unit.

Thanks for the reply. Am I guessing it would be just as easy if not easier to put a fascia and a nice double din ?

Have a search on here. I recently replaced my OEM Nav system with an aftermarket unit and it has transformed the driving experience now- so nice to have modern tech in the X5 now.

As yours is non Nav it will be easier to fit an aftermarket unit too. Have a look at connects2 for the required wiring and fascia Adapters.
