General X5 Forum (E70) / Non Run Flat but * rated
« on: April 16, 2018, 11:47:28 AM »

Looking to fit new rear tyres, but can't find a decent option for 285 /45 19 * rated, but non run flat. Need the higher load rating since it's a 7 seater.

Will replace the fronts too if I go non run flat.

Any suggestions?

Thanks guys.

Started the car this morning, warning lights still on. Had a play with the steering wheel position, read this can sometimes help moving it backwards and forwards, up and down repeatedly. Sadly not. Disconnected the battery and left it for an hour whilst making the ammeter mistake of shutting the boot! Anyway, reconnected, started car, lights still on. But as soon as I was 50 metres up the road they started going off one at time, bonus! Will still get the codes read as I suspect it's only a matter of time before they come back on!

Sorry, just realised I've put this in the wrong section...

Please move to E83...

Afternoon all,

My wife has just come home in her X3 with a number of warning lights on the dash :( It's a 2008 2.0d.

4x4 Warning Light
Amber Brake Warning.
Airbag Warning Light

Any ideas?

Our of interest, when does yours whine?

I wonder if my front n/s bearing has gone too. As a passenger, you only really hear it when off the throttle and "free wheeling".

Oh, I see BMW do a genuine upgrade kit. Probably the safest bet.

Just bringing this thread back to life... Has anybody ordered one of the various LED kits? If so which one, and how does it look?

I've always been very wary of these "upgrades" as it can look a boy racer\halford-ish. However I recently took a punt on one for the S2000 and it looks great, so much brighter for the winter months and looks more modern. Although I deliberately didn't go for the brightest ones.

General Discussion / Anyone driven a 2018 X3 yet?
« on: December 30, 2017, 08:42:07 AM »
I popped into my local BMW dealer yesterday to collect a part, but was drawn to the new X3 in the showroom. Looks a fantastic size and that interior is stunning. Whilst the old X3 interior was very much on a par with the 3 series range (not a good thing), this looks a step up even from my old F11. Size wise it looks bang on too, cabin size much like my old E53, you just don't sit quite as high.

Just need to depreciation to do it's thing, that 30d was £53k with options, yikes! 40i could be an interesting option.

So just wondering if anyone has driven one yet and what your thoughts are.. Still hard to overlook the F15 as a replacement for my E70.  But I guess that's the old vs new discussions...

15 miles? You mean 150 surely from the battery?

If genuinely 15, I don't see the point or am I missing something?

« on: November 20, 2017, 08:02:43 PM »
Good idea! I hadn't realised you could put the VIN number in, I was just selecting year etc, so wasn't 100% sure.

Anyway, it confirms 332mm.

General X5 Forum (E70) / 7 Seater E70 SE Disc Size?
« on: November 20, 2017, 07:35:50 PM »

My 2011 3.0d SE is due new brake discs, there's quite a lip on them now.

Now I could be making this up, but did I read somewhere the 7 seater has the larger M Sport discs or was it the 40d brakes?? So 348mm or 349mm rather than 332mm? I can't find any reference to this online though :(

Going to go for Pagid discs and Textar pads at ECP, that combination has always served me well on other cars, with the bonus they're on offer at the moment with their Black Friday deal.


How's the sound quality?

I also had the same query. I went (indirectly) from a E61 550i to the E70. I loved that feature in the E61 (enjoy a heated back, but not bum) but I don't have that option even in my 2011 facelift 30d.

 I figured it was because I went from the top of the range model to the bottom.

Replied mate.

I meant to update the advert a while back, but I just need to check if they fit M Sport equipped cars, came off a LCI SE. Let me know what you have and I'll double check.
