Sytner Leics told me mine needed filling. I obviously said no and looked online there and then.
Halfords were half the price of Sytner. It I don’t remember the price however.

I have the keyless start so just take the key with me and lock it.
Works a treat for defrosting on the drive

Was just wondering if anybody else does it.
If it gets nicked, just say it was car jacked  :blink:

Just wondering if anybody ever locks their X5 but leaves the engine running.
I have done it a few times when defrosting on the drive and more recently to keep it cool before loading the dogs in.

Would Anybody be brave enough to leave it running, lock it and pop in to a shop for 5 minutes?
I wonder if the alarm activation shuts the engine off..?

I have Nextbase in all my cars
Cable can be run under the trim to the footwell and there is a handy 12v socket there to use too

Sorry if I have failed at searching... I didn’t find anything

I just ordered new pads for my F15 and wondered if anyone can tell me if there are any particular special tools or procedures?

I have done many pad changes on other cars but don’t have much time on my hands so need to be prepared.

BMW want £500 to do them  ::)

This company do one.
If you look on their face book page, they have a video showing it.
I made an enquiry a couple of months ago but still have not got around to doing anything

Any must do's with Idrive?

I think setting up the shortcuts is a must.
Really handy to have tyre pressures, oil level and home on the sat nav all at one push of a button

I know this is an old topic but I have been searching for anybody who has retrofitted a camera without much luck.

I have found these guys:
http://www.carcommunications.co.uk/car-accessories/driver-safety-aids/reversing-camera-kits/bmw-reverse-camera/bmw-x5-reverse-camera/bmw-x5-f15-rear-view-camera-kit-for-cic-nbt-systems

It looks to be exactly what I am looking for but a tad expensive...

I sent them a message and asked who my local installer was but they would not say. I told them that as it is obviously an expensive car, it would be good to see any reviews from the installer. They still said no...

« on: May 08, 2017, 06:24:40 AM »
many people think it is best not to have a tracker fitted.
If the car is stolen, thrashed about, damaged and repaired - would you want it back?

no experience of that but it is one of the arguments I have read on forums.

to get to the underfloor area you just pull the cover off the flap that folds down when the tailgate is open and then it all lifts up together.

It really is good and comes with adhesive backed velcro so you can just pull it all out easily.
The other goof feature is that it works with split back seats so you can have one side down and one up.
