2006 x5

Need feedback on reason (s) for running lights, low beam and blinker on left side of vehicle isn't working,(left side as from drivers seat facing out).

Also, recommendations for reasonably priced parts for BMW's -NOT Rock Auto!

Thanx!

Dave

Got it!

Got it-great info on X5s but only saw BMW online sales -VERY expensive...any other online parts sites you know of?.
Are you well versed/knowledgable about X5's"?
Just got mine in March and still figuring it out-fairly complex machine!

Depends on what you are looking for.

Try the following:
https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/select select your VIN number and browse all the parts. Get the PN you need then go out and see what is out there. STAY away from Amazon as there are way too many copy cat fake parts listed.

https://www.bmwoffairfax.com/order-parts-online.htm
https://www.ecstuning.com/
https://www.fcpeuro.com/BMW-parts/

I use Rockauto.com for maintenance items like oil, air and fuel Filters as they stock Mann at low prices. I use them for Centric rotors and other brand pads.
Oil at Costco or Walmart Brand Mobil 1 - 0W-40 Euro blend.

Others use many other vendors
