New 4.8is from TX

Hello everyone, my name is John, I'm from Texas, and I have a 2006 X5 4.8iS (and an 05 e46 ZHP).

I've been lurking for a while to fix things up on the e53 and Xoutpost has been a great resource.

The only modifications I've done are to replace the air suspension with coil springs. Other than that, all stock. I read about the nightmares that most people had and decided to not even bother with diagnosing my error message.

Thanks everyone.

will do. I'll post the video of my wife revving it. I didn't realize they would sound so mean and that's when I realized it was a pretty rad little car. I have a few pics on my IG but I'm at work so I can't post them from here :/

+1 on the air ride. Mine had issues when I first got it but all sorted now.

I have 113k miles on my 4.8is, rebuilt the air compressor at 91k miles. No issues beyond that. I use the adjustable ride height often.
