The timing chain or the dreaded water coolant transfer pipe seals (in the middle) haven’t been done yet. The N62 doesnt have the timing chain guide issue. Probably do both together when it comes to it. VSS, left and right head gaskets, timing cover gaskets, transmission gear box fix, plugs & coils, coolant pump & pipes, sump gasket. Anyway, keep those miles coming. I am interested. thanks

Just test drove an X5 with my wife today. Beautiful car, very nice leather interior, quiet as a mouse and the 4.0 they had on the lot had lots of schlitz on the road. Based on this we are going to order a 50e next week. Wonder if that set up will get anywhere near 160k!?

Well the XM is almost exactly 160,000.



Oh you meant miles.

Bwahhaahhaa.

EODguy, that is roughly 470,000 km? That is amazing and gives me hope. Was there a complete engine overhaul in that? regards

Hahaha, no mine is a Gulf spec edition so it's kilometers.

2005 N62 4.4i here with just over 260k kms. LOVING it still and about to take it on a smalll trip to the Rocky Mountains for a spa date at the Nordic Spa in Kananaskis, Alberta. I'm looking forward to getting the engine hot for a 1hr drive to mountains to get that oil up and circulating. I just swapped out the N62 valve cover gaskets because of some slight "mayo" build up, from allll the short drives the last year. I have it sitting on a tender when not using often, but she still needs to get out fora HOT long drive to circ the fluids.... today is the day.

131,000 miles here and the VSS makes the X5 smoke like a chimney, even from long stop lights now. It's time under the knife is drawing near.
