I never got to the air suspension stuff. Took all day on the intake boot. Had a late start waiting on it to get warm enough outside to work on it and then all the problems doing the fix on that didn't leave me time for it.

Maybe tomorrow.

Way off topic, but don’t forget to check those brake lines under the drivers area!

Common problem ?

Never had brake line issues on my other X5's.

It is up here in the north east. I fix them all the time. About 6 inches behind the water drain on the drivers side, under that plastic panel rust developes. Particularly on the hard plastic line holder sleeve. Check the “heads up for a brake line check” or similar thread. You can remove 5 quick 8mm bolts to get a peak at them.

I'm thinking about maybe this one:

Love these style much better than the ones that look like factory nav. Looks awesome installed.

I bought this one... looks to be the same, check it out first but it's significantly cheaper:

As an alternative to drilling a hole, maybe consider bailing with a turkey baster and sopping up last residual with some baby diapers or other modern high absorbency materials?
