LOL! Given that your wife may or may not have had anything to do with your foretold passing leads me to believe this control unit may be only slightly less than the cost of the dealer's part?


I believe my wife would be in complete agreement with your's.

Ive got 1, soon to be two fully functioning ones. Both #37146773999. I have not had a chance to get the first up on eBay...but if anyone is in need when they read this, Id like $400+shipping.

Update....

Found new old stock in the EU for $500 USD, but the 5 old units are all dead and dead the same way.... So my y fun meter just exploded at the realization that the White Witch is killing controllers. I am now in the process of installing coil overs (said I wouldn't) and I have discovered the hoist I am using probably is filled with olive oil or I grew 2" overnight

I hope to be done this evening in time for work on Sunday at 0430. I'll post pictures as soon as knuckles heal.

EODguy, how'd your suspension swap go? You did get it completed already, right?

Oops. Yes and no.

I had to pull the suspension from another X5 and once I had it on mine I have had and issue with the RR camber and now I am waiting for the place I normally use for alignment to be back from vacation to fix that issue.
