Hi mine was running a bit sluggish the other week.
I also thought it could be a turbo gone then remembered a topic on the forum.
Did a throttle reset and it was shit off a stick again, worth a try
It's not sluggish it lost 50% power.
You could ping Jason@bwchiptune a PM.  He’s in West London and well known to the Forum  :)
Spoke to a fella called Dom from there, I'll send the car to them next week.

Thanks :)

I know why the 320d is not chargeable as it is registered disabled.
But i don't understand the 2002 x5 3.0d part.

Thank you for using the T-Charge checker. Your vehicle is subject to the T-Charge but not chargeable.

Just put my 2002 x5 3.0d in and this came up ???????????? strange.

Thank you for using the T-Charge checker. Your vehicle is not subject to the T-Charge.

Your vehicle meets at least the Euro 4 / IV standard (Euro 3 if you are a motorised tricycle or quadricycle).
Problems / "repetitive rustling sound" when start driving
« Last post by acideraser on Today at 10:47:26 AM »
Hi All,

My 2011 E70 (3.0 xDrive, Feb 2011, 90k on the clock) started making a sort of "repetitive rustling sound". it appears when first start the car and goes away within first 5-10 minutes of driving, so I assume when engine / car warms up.
It's is there only while driving from 1000 revs and above and the higher revs - higher the sound repetitions.

I will post a video tomorrow to give an idea but at least wanted to know if someone experienced similar issues? Could this be a first sign of a need for belt replacement?

Oil replacement service is due in 1000 miles, so I was going to ask the guys to check this as well but worried if this is belt related issue should be addressed immediately?

Given that the majority of the cars breaking is done by the front brakes,.

Since most people who mod cars and uprate the fronts brakes only I guess you could still do that, and it should still work with the rears okay.

Also as you say it could poss be better towing as the X3 is prob heavier than the 335d.

That's strange as that nearly happened to me. I was hearing a rattle and when i checked the long bolt at the bottom as well as the one the same as yours were loose. I had replaced all my suspension about 6 months earlier and i knew they were all tight.

For the sake of future readers with same issue.


Remove the glovebox by removing the 4 screws at the top and pulling a plastic bolt out of the shock absorber like return device on the right. Keeping the box closed made it easier to slide out.

To the right of the fuses there is a screw - loosen and attach the earth to that.

Replace glovebox and enjoy.
Im about to do the same install with next base hard wire kit,what fuse did you piggy back onto?
