That may have more to do with the THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND MILES you have on your X5.

Holy crap man - that is incredible! That is literally *over* three and a half times as many miles as mine has. I have about 89,000 on my '04 X5 and freaking everything is breaking on it! Seriously - I've replaced three power locks, two window regulators, one cylinder head, both rear air shocks, all of my calipers and rotors, installed a stent to fix a coolant leak, replaced the upper rad hose. I still need to install another new window regulator, my rear tailgate release is broken, neither of my keys work, my gauge cluster needs to be replaced (I guess ), the transmission seems a little rougher than it used to, the engine feels down in power, there's a lot of oil around my power steering pump, I need to replace the hood alarm sensor, both of my headlights are a bit hazy looking and need to be sanded and refinished...

How did you do it? How did you keep up with the repairs for 350,000 miles?
