On my e53 it has the fog on both sides but not sure on your car.
Regarding what bulb have you had a look on a bulb site with a bulb finder like this one.

Does it suck if you take it off with the engine running.

It will drop like a stone next time i go out lol.

General X5 Forum (E53) / Range 620
« on: July 13, 2018, 03:50:51 PM »
Never noticed before but my tank range won't go over 620.
Just filled up mid run and it showed 615 miles.
Drove off down duel and then onto motorway steady speed and it went to 620 after the first 5/6 miles then it has stayed at 620 for the last 95 miles.
Is 620 the max the readout can display.
Anybody else get this.
Car is a diesel 2002 e53.

The parking sensor switch on centre panel will turn them on so you can get close to a wall or something when in drive and speed is low/slow.
I have also used that button to test/listen for a faulty sensor.

In my e53 i can turn them on manually in that situation but only come on automatically when reverse is engaged.

Done from underneath and fed into the cowling and round the fan.

I will get it booked in for the test.

I thought I'd take a look at the injector price and boy are they expensive.  £350 for 1!!

That is very expensive you can get manufactures refurbished for around £100 or even less.
can't find my invoice but i had mine done last year.
The test 2 injectors coding and fitting was around £400 or a bit under not main dealer but a good bmw specialist.
Shop around.

BMW scanner 1.4 for me as well.
You can do quite a few things with it including turning the hot/cold light check off if you want to use LED's.
You can get it for not a lot on the bay.
Not the advert i bought from just a quick search.

I had the rail pressure on starting code.
My car would crank over a few times and then start when cold but would take a lot more cranking when hot.
It turned out to be 2 injectors leaking badly new ones fitted and it starts straight away hot or cold.
Get a leak off test done on them it's the only way to tell.
