General X5 Forum (F15) / X5 M50d wheel alignment
« on: Yesterday at 05:32:51 PM »
Backstory - cars a 2017 / 67” with around 1,000 miles. Car was bought from sytner in Sheffield with around 600 miles on the clock by my father in law. Been offered the car for a good price but wanted to get wheel alignment sorted out before I buy it. Steering wheel is off centre ( left hand down ). Took the car to get aligned today by a specialist on a John Bean machine. Once car was aligned and everything was in spec I took it for a drive and wheel is still off centre and left hand down. Garage thinks the steering needs to be calibrated as everything is reading within spec..

First question is, I know where geo isn’t covered under warranty but the cars barely been driven and alignment is off already. The garage we purchased car from is around 350 miles away so going back there is a no go. Called the dealer who supplied the car and they claim the car was perfect and will get back to me mon morning to let me know if they will cover the cost of alignment.

Second is has anyone has this issue with the F15 chassis X5 and was is rectified easily by KDS alignment ?

Most likely it will take a hit once the new model arrives but a 75K car for 50K seems good enough to me - always wanted a new car but could never live with the depreciation..

I’ve driven the m50d I’m considering buying a few times and mpg seems poor for a Diesel - Even tho it’s fast for such a big car. Power also seems very on / off

I thought price was fair too, steering wheel seems to be off Centre so I’ve asked the owner to have the wheel alignment checked and adjusted. Once I do a vin check I’ll know what options it has for sure.

A question about the servicing - I think the first one is due around 18,000 miles. Is this just mileage based or also time as well?

Hi all, possibly purchasing an X5 this week. Spec wise what I can see it has,

Harmon / Kardon
Black / Ivory interior extended to lower dash
Digital cockpit
Polished 21” wheels
Pan roof
HUD

Car only has 1,000 miles on the clock and the owners asking £50,000. In the opinion of current owners - in the next 6 months or so is the car set to depreciate a lot?

Also I know the first service isn’t due till 18,000 but is it time based as well - EG once a year ?

Hi, thanks for the replies.

Driven both,

RRS - looks better ( subjective ), more cool gadgets such as auto side steps, air suspension which raises and lowers by a button also gives a more comfy ride, Brembo calipers, more spacious.

Cons - poor headlight, uncomfy seats, slower than X5, infotanement seems dates compared to Bmw.

X5 - fast, handles well, cars is new with only a 1,000 miles, virtual cockpit and Infotanement display is crisp, also has Harmon / Kardon.

Cons - subjectively doesn’t look as good, harsher ride, worse MPG - Around 22/23 mpg in town

I’ll use the vin de coder this week but a few Q’s,

Are comfort seats basically electrically controlled or is there more?

Is dynamic susp air susp which is adaptive?

Are the LED’s the ones which adapt to certain light levels and change direction?
