If the dash can display "Trans Failsafe Mode" you'd think it could display "No MAF Found".

traded my 06 X5 4.4i with 150K miles for a 2015 X5 xdrive35i with Msport package.

Looks fantastic, but "the ultimate driving experience" is gone. The electric steering is especially dull.

Oh well, I've got a Porsche Boxster for the days I need to driving pleasure. the X5 is now just a boring DD

And that is why I am keeping my '06 X5 with 235,000 miles on it. She's my daily driver and it's fun to drive commuting or doing a bit of sporty driving.

Yes, there is. Go to Realoem.com. You'll get the correct part numbers. Left and right are different.
