Update time!

Shortly after modifyinig the mufflers I wanted a bit more sound so I opened them up again and took most of the packing out. I don't have a clip of it but it is a little louder and sounds very deep at low revs. No droning on the highway. Perfect.



I had to fix the leaky valve covers and wanted to paint them at the same time:







Had to fix both the Vanos solenoid leaks too:


And I replaced the aux belts because one of them was squeeking on startup. Happy that it was not one of the bearings

The results:



One of the door handles broke , fixed it with a Febi replacement


We had lots of snow this year, did some donuts and drifts




Did some towing in The Hague to pick up some furniture. Small streets.


Did some more towing, bringing my track car to the dyno for ECU tuning after engine work.




Still had one leaky door because of a broken weather barrier, ordered a new OEM item instead of a DIY plastic version. Hopefully it will be fixed now.

2 of the centercaps are now starting to corrode, still look OK-ish and 2 of them are still looking good. I think they did not like the salt on the roads.



Next week the car must have it's yearly road worthy inspection (APK in Dutch). I expect no problems, maybe an advisory on the rear tires as the inside edge is pretty worn. I want to replace them anyway because they show age related cracks and they are a cheaper brand. I rather have matching front and rear tires.


Currently not much planned for more modifications, actually non at all except a supercharger but that is like mission impossible because they are almost non existent second hand.
Currenlty the X5 is perfect in my eyes and does everything while looking
I even had someone that thought it was a new car

Thanks!

The car did not pass inspection last week because of a torn steering sleeve (age related and already replaced) and the rear tires must be replaced due to camber wear from the old worn bushings. Other then that no issues!

Finally matching tire brands and type front and rear.

After that I must still fix my small transmission leak, it's leaking at the pan gasket and I will replace the selector shaft seal at the same time.
