General X5 Forum (E70) / White smoke on hard acceleration
« on: June 20, 2018, 11:04:34 AM »
Hi,

I have a 2010 4.0d, and last week when accelerating hard onto a motorway I saw a huge amount of white smoke, I immediately stopped accelerating and the smoke disappeared.

No warnings on the dash, nothing, the car drove normal.

Now, I had not driven the car for a few weeks before then as I've been away.

I've checked the coolant and I don't think it's going down.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks.

General X5 Forum (E70) / 4.0d Steering Wheel Vibration at idle
« on: May 18, 2018, 06:43:54 PM »
Hi,

I have just purchased an X5 2010 4.0d with 86,000 miles on the clock.

The car drives really good, not problem, but the only thing i have noticed is that when the engine is at idle when stationary the steering wheel vibrates.

When driving or when the revs go above idle the vibration disappears.

Is this normal? I haven't had a diesel BMW before, I have owned a 4.8 X5 petrol and a petrol 6 series with no steering wheel vibration.

Thanks for your ideas.

General X5 Forum (E70) / E70 Angel eyes issue?
« on: July 20, 2013, 04:39:18 PM »
Hi, I have a 2007 E70 with Xenons, the previous owner had replaced the H7 36W with H7 36W lamps with a blue tint to them which produce a really good white DRL light.

But... the inner ring is a lot brighter than the outer ring on both sides!!, is there anything I can do about this?

Thanks
