OMG!!! I'm gonna miss my 4.6is X5 with the Dinan goods and the magnaglorious sounds of the V8. Its a sad day my X5 sold today but at least it went to another BMW enthusiast that will care for the vehicle.

She will be missed around here. Hopefully you still poke in to see how the rest of us masochists are holding up.

New hood release cable installed.

New hood pins/latches ordered.

Left hand headlight sprayer waiting for repair from today's suicidal dove...

Probably that damn bird that I gave water to.

So an e53 can take a ton of abuse in a car crash yet a 5oz dove at 135 kph leaves feathers and part of a beak (I assume) wedged under my sprayer like a freaking Pez dispenser!!
Yeah mother nature....

Maybe apply a small sticker over the headlight washer mounting hole while you wait for the replacement?

Ha Ha

I'll have you know the bird looked nothing like that when I found it.

Could have buried it in a upturned headlight sprayer...
