If I paid for shipping to Saudi Arabia my wife would be shipping a rolled up "carpet" to shitholastan...

Have you ever bought a new set of rims for an X5? Or a new X5? They are both expensive items to be sure. I am hoping you aren't add ignorant as thinking the original sticker price had any bearing on my decision to buy. I was after the rubber that happened to be on the rims. The rims were a perk and a helluva perk at that.

2400 for a set of good rims is probably a fair price with install and TPMS. I wouldn't know I let somebody else pay the depreciation. I know for certain $250 with shipping for $2400 new is a FANTASTIC price for perfect condition e70 rims.

I believe he was thinking that the seller paid that for the tires only.

Indeed I was, and I'd call anybody who spends $3600 on tires a fool (unless they are campaigning a race car or owning a Ferrari)


Since you spent $550 on tires I was most definitely not calling you a fool.

I've spent the last two days doing surgery on my rear doors. Both windows have been displaying clip and/or regulator failure for many months, to the extent that I've put them both on the list of switches not to operate in the car. I also needed to repair some plastic bits on both door cards. The factory glue has gotten so soft that the black plastic bits that hold the panel clips end up breaking away and staying with the door when I pull the door card/panel.

Additionally, the rear side impact door air-bags have been unplugged since the car was new. I vaguely remember that since our kids were in car seats the dealer said they would deactivate them, then re-activate when they were out of the car seats. We moved long before that and the car became the dog and airport car so I never bothered. I figured I'd plug them back in since I was in the doors anyway and I have a Foxwell now to reset the codes. No luck on this one. It looks like the dealer coded them out of the software. Yet another reason to get and learn how to use ISTA I guess.

Regarding the broken plastic on the panels, I've found that JB Weld plastic two part (brown tube) seems to work best of what I've got to choose from at Auto Zone and it sets in about 15 minutes.

The left door was a broken clip but the right door was a failing regulator, which exploded off the rail for good after I detached the window and was troubleshooting it. Good timing. I'll cut a piece of wood to wedge the window up with and order a new regulator. I'd love to meet the team that engineered that crappy system and see if any of them ever owned an X5.

Wife found the tire receipt. She can't read Arabic except for numbers, so let's just say that I rather piss off the Ginsu Chef at Benihana's instead of explaining more X5 purchases

Completely understand. The “budget” for my project has come under intense scrutiny from global headquarters recently. Unfortunately I’ve still got a few expensive pieces to buy for the new motor too. Namely a crank pulley, alternator and steering pump. Maybe I’ll get a harmonic damper for Christmas!

Wish I had known about this earlier!!

But I guess I'll chalk up the tires as birth control....
