Thanks everyone! I'm still so thankful that my X5 is back!

Last week I replaced the rear leveling sensors but the error still comes and goes. Sometimes it will not show at all but it could be back a minute later. It did not do that with the old sensors so I think I'm in the right direction. This week I will get hold of a new laptop and INPA software to reset the module and try again. If it doesn't work after a reset I will replace the module with a used one.

About the camsensor fault codes, the engine warning light did not come on in the last two weeks. Should be fine then

The Error code 140 for the Thermostat turns out to be a broken thermostat. It's leaking internally and coolant is reaching the wire connector on top of thermostat, causing the error to pop up. I will replace the thermostat soon to fix this.

As for the pre cat 02 sensor, I replaced the one that was faulty.

Now for the subwoofer that was stolen, I've got a new one and built a new box for it. This subwoofer has more RMS watts then the stolen one. 450W RMS and 1300W peak. My amp can only output 375W RMS so the woofer is not maxed, unlike the old one. JBL Statium 1024.

This new subwoofer has a larger mounting depth so unfortunately it would not fit behind the cover. It sticks out about 1 inch. I could not mount it in the correct orientation because of the SSI Ohm regulator that was in the way. It looks a little rough now but I still need to add a grill to make it look better and to add some protection.



I absolutely love the sound that this woofer makes, it's very powerfull and makes all of my music sound awesome. I was thinking to replace the factory speakers too but for right now the factory speakers are fine in combination with the subwoofer.


In the last post I talked about a change of wheels. I have decided and I think I made the right choice. Picked up these wheels for 500 euro's with usable winter tires, I will probably sell the tires as winter tires are not really needed here. I will probably sell the Style 168 when the Style 87 are refurbished.

OEM Style 87








I can't stop looking at it.

I think this anthracite color looks good on the X5 but Silver might look even better and classic? What do you think about it? Silver or keep them anthracite?
They need to be repainted or powdercoated anyways as 2 wheels are chiping pretty bad.

Those 87s look great! I am a fan of original silver for wheels but to each their own! Be careful the tstat doesnt allow coolant to run into the DME and cause corrosion on the pins which is a known common problem if this is neglected for too long. It's worth checking the DME is nice and clean at this point too! Go for an 88c tstat which will run the engine cooler and no longer uses the mapped tstat connection. You will get a 140 MAP Cooling error but no check engine light!

$500 Euros for the Style 87's is a great price. They are harder and harder to find over here. I personally like silver on the blue but that is all personal preference. Style 87's are my favorite wheel for the X5.

^^Agreed.



I do like the silver but I think the anthracite looks great with that blue.


I was given a front style 87 in perfect condition. Now I just need one more front and 2 rear. Maybe I can be lucky enough to find someone selling a set of 3 after they ruined a front one hitting a pot hole...
