Updated DME with daten v66. The car seems idle better/smoother especially right after cold start.
Other than that....

I'm not sure but those look like the factory halos with Weisslicht LED bulbs?

Yes! Sorry, I'm prepping for another road trip! This one is short. Estimated 4,000 miles.

Ahhh... Must be the inside shot. I kept zooming to see if I could see the light pipes but the lighting was even enough that it fooled me. looks good at any rate.

Is that the mileage or the X5 repair count? lol...

Speaking of which.... mine is getting up there....

swapped out microphone for Dynavin Nav (not working) only to find that new microphone also doesn't work.... solution? LOT'S of tension to hold the microphone jack into the back by way of carefully applied electrical tape... (better half states call volume and operation markedly better....)



used the 3M kit on the 4.8is front headlights.... this is BEFORE.... not overly happy compared to the professionally done version on the 4.4.. might be a redo....



Used the caramel wheel to remove the door windshield adhesive as recommended by you guys here... easy as...

Went to replace the rear wheel speed sensors but they were the wrong length.... yup my bad I focused on the part number and ended up with two front sensors instead of the rear...

Now only have to fix the sunroof rattle and the X drive and might be able to finally drive the thing.....
