2004 4.8iS BC Coilovers

Hi guys. Just wanted to share my newest change to the X5.

Yesterday I removed the SLS on the X. I went with BC Coilovers. I will get a few good pics of the stance after I clean it up this morning. I have the fronts set as boxed and the rears lowered all the way. I also wanted to share the ease of getting rid of the SLS error. It's just a check mark in ncs expert for the cluster errors that are displayed. I unplugged all of the SLS fuses except the one in the glove box and do not have anymore issues. After changing over it tried to pump up the bags 3 times and since then the compressor nor green led indicator have worked and I had the SLS inactive warning until removed for the cluster display list. All in all took about 3 hours to change over and 20-30 minutes for me to figure out how to code.

I must say the body roll is tremendously improved and ride quality as simple as the turn of a knob. I can't complain one bit and absolutely love the ride height now!

I started out in the softest dampening setting. That was really soft but still not as bouncy as the air ride when lowered. After installing and driving I'm now at setting 15 all around and the ride is excellent. Softer than the air ride but less body roll by far.

I've installed the BC"s as well and at one point had the Inactive Air Ride error removed but since then the battery went flat and now it's returned.
Any chance I could get you to take a picture of the screen/s to get the error removed from the cluster?
I cannot seem to locate it again and yes, I'm a greenie with NCS big time.
Thank you
