AGM = Absorbed Glass Mat (in case you wondered).

Some E53s got them by default (my 2005 30d did) and most modern cars use them.
Please explain the Flex-Plate noise potential ?

If you can push to it get an AGM battery - especially if you car isn't used very often. One of the best things I've bought for mine.

Quick update before I head back down to the garage to carry on with the X5.

Blanked off the secondary air system yesterday which meant the exhaust blow was removed. It was at that point I realised it wasn't running right - lumpy and throttle not as responsive as I remembered it was....even though that was well over a year ago.

I found that the cylinders on bank 1 weren't firing properly - smooth running values on all those 4 cylinders according to my Snap On scanner, cylinder 1 being the worst at around 8/9 @ idle. Basically that means there's misfires. The exhaust wasn't even getting hot on that side as opposed to bank 2 being red hot so proper combustion isn't occuring as it should.

Dug out my laptop and INPA so hopefully should have answers shortly. Gut reaction is vanos issues but I really hope I'm wrong.

It's certainly making me work for my first drive!!!

Did you try just opening the bleed on each wheel and just letting it flow/drip.

Genuine parts from a facelift one. 2010 x5 40d the lights come from.
