Hi and welcome to the forum, can I advise that you supply us with a little more info on your X5
It's best to put what variant of X5 i.e. Petrol/ Diesel engine size, age i.e. Facelift / prefacelift.
This info makes a massive difference to your questions.
2011 Kia Sorento KX3  2.2D 60 Plate Auto in black ( mine )
BMW E83 X3.  3.0d M Sport, 2008 in black ( now gone )
BMW E93 330i Convertible  Msport  2007.  ( Now sold )
VW Golf 2.0 TDI 140 GT 2010 ( now sold )
Now Sold 55 plate, X5, 3.0 D Sport. Silv

It's an idea to put this info in your signature for all future posts

It's my first X5 I've had a few beers in the past

You can get an official diesel system/injector cleaner from BMW - Coltswold BMW sell it on flea-bay at a good discount, and they are on here as coltwoldbmwmini too.

Send Jason at jason@bwchiptune (also on here) a PM if you want safe and sound advice about remapping.  He knows what he’s doing and can 3xplain the do’s, don’ts or shouldn’ts as well as any risks.

Hi iv researched this and engine detox is much better way to go thay use gas throw the air intake, instead of fuel. There's a company near me in Essex that iv spoken with and thay guarantee it will not harm nothing, I got a price of a stage 3 detox ( engine turbo the lot ) and a economy remap with gains of +10hp and +90 tourqe +10% - 20% fuel saving, price was around 450-500 👍
