Got a crack on the grill, looking on EBay, a lot of choice with original, full chrome etc, the full chrome I like but there seems issues with the years.
Some say 2000 to 06. Some say up to 04 facelift.
So, are the bonnet grills all the same or is the facelift a different design ?

Hi all

Was about to replace the fronts but seem to be reading poor things about these Bridgestone Turanza tyres, seems to say as a summer tyre they are very noisy, aso a bit more of concern is the wet grip and stopping distance,
Dont know if reports are X5 related or other cars but online reading dont appear good.
The 2 rears are same type but loads of tread so was going to keep same.

Thanks fir that. So I’m ok with W on front and V on rear ?

They are same tyre. Bridgestone Tiranza Er30 star marked

If a tyre is the same Brand and  type does it matter if I have the rears marked 107 V and the fronts 107W ?
Just got a chance to buy 2 W marked ones from a tyres place local at a bargain price but I have V marked on rear

Would it affect handling or Stopping distance at all
