General X5 Forum (E70) / Spring cleaning....
« on: April 16, 2018, 06:42:44 PM »
So I've had this for about 4 months now. It's a great car, it's effortlessly powerful and the V8 is sublime. I gave her a good clean at the weekend, used Poorboys and Collinite, and Autoglym for the plastics. I am over the moon with the results. I've replaced the kidney grills with gloss black and I am just awaiting a full LED pack for Angel eyes and interior. I am also considering a subtle exhaust mod as I think it's a tad too quiet. My mate has a e53 4.8 and his exhaust sounds much better. I also see there is a SC upgrade making 525bhp, but as tempting as that is, I think a X5M would be a more sensible option.

Problems / Re: sourcing E70 headlamp washer jets- confused!

I was quoted £101 for one plus the cover from Cotswold! Can you just replace the jet piece without removing the entire unit?

I have the same issue. Need drivers side replacing. This link should help.

Does anyone know if this is a diy replacement?

Problems / Headlight washer
« on: March 06, 2018, 08:18:14 PM »
Just noticed that the drivers side headlight washer is not quite right.

It still works but when squirted a tube pops out and water just pours on the floor.

Is this a simple diy fix? What parts do I need?





Cheers

General X5 Forum (E70) / Keys
« on: December 03, 2017, 09:25:42 PM »
My car only came with one key. I've looked into getting a spare but they are over £200! Looking through the bits and bobs draw and found a key from my old 1 series. It's the same style key, could it be reprogrammed to use with my X5?

Yes, the M3 has a 62 litre tank the X5 is 85. 230 to 250 from 62 litres in the M3 same as this.

Actually thats not bad, how much was a tank of petrol out of interest?? Intrigued to see difference compared to a tank of diesel cost wise.

Get some more pics up in the 'Gallery' section, also of the M3 - had an E46 myself!!!

Si
£95. Filled up today. AVG 16.5mpg. mainly urban driving.

Thanks.. yes it's a great engine. I've done 230 miles and still have 1/4 tank left. 90 miles reports the OBC. If I can get 300 miles I'm happy with that. Only got just over 200 from the M3

Just chopped in my 2006 E46 M3 ... I was planning on a E90 M3, but stumbled across a 2008 4.8i. Glad I made the decision to go for it. Such a great engine, just wafts along. Look forward to participating in the forum. Cheers

Hi all

Ok the X5 is now ready for a new home.

The missus is doing more miles now as her mum has fallen very ill and has to make a lot of hospital runs. It's just costing too much in fuel.

Shame as it's a great car, runs perfectly well and has never let us down.

I had it serviced  (visual check, oil and filter) back in April. Taxed and MOT till September.

No faults, either mechanically or electrical

I'm asking £7350 ono.
