X5m troubles

Anyone else have troubles with pipes breaking (oil return/turbo to intake). I have had a Dinan installed and had alot of issues with pipes breaking, black smoke from exhaust, and faults galore. Bmw is saying it is the dinan software. i have 38k on the car. think its time to unload?

read my tread , 3 down from here my advice >>>


have dealer remove sofware (at theyre charge ofcourse) diagnose then fix prob (blown seals in turbo's) then reapply the tune (at theyre cost aswell) and go from there !

unfortuneltly these are only the beginnnings of you problems !!

if you wanna discuss you can always pm your # and i'll give you a rundown on my situation

This issue sucks!

It brings back memories to my beloved twin turbo 01 Audi S4...

But I really think all Turbo cars will ultimately have issues...be it seals, inlets etc

Just drive semi-sanely and let the turbos get to operating temps before WOT and adequate cool down to prevent "coking" of the oil lines.

Makes me wanna go back to a NA car
