Thanks. The parts total was around $375 including the BMW coolant. I bought the Contitech hoses, Behr expansion tank, and Wahler water pump from Amazon with help from my cashback points and the Behr/Hella radiator I had a $25 off coupon from eeuroparts. The Saleri water pump I found for only $53 including shipping @ partsgeek. I also replaced the two trans cooler (that attaches to the radiator) seals.

I'm really going to miss my X5, but it was just one thing after another. I've got a young kid, a new job, and a wife that feel like we dont spend enough quality time together. Add all that up and going out to diagnose the latest problem with the X at the tune of $500/pop just wore me out.

I'll have some goodies for sale in a couple of days, I pulled the sirius module, the working TCU, my new Rim/Tires, my compass/homelink mirror and the rear hatch springs.

I suspect I'll be back into BMW's in a couple of years once I have some more time. my current desire is either a E39 540iT or a E24/E28.
good luck with the cherokee, a buddy of mine picked 1 up last year and had to replace the tranny in it already. hope yours isn`t like that 1 . all I can say is don`t push it to the limit.
as for working on the x5 its my getting away from the family , but all also have a daughter thats 18 and son 15 and been married for 20yrs too.

I finally got around to swap my headlights to something "new".



This is the result.

Thx! I sourced them on finn.no (norwegian versjon of craigslist), they were used for approx 15 months by previous owner (which is an E53 fan and keeps changing his car for exhibitions). I paid 1300NOK (approx 150USD), which a reasonable price in my opinion here in norway.
