Hey guys, quick question for anyone that has experience with aftermarket air bags... My X5 is up for sale, but the rear driver bag deflates after a few hours of sitting. I want to replace the bag but I don't necessarily want to spend $130 on an Arnott bag if I can get an aftermarket one for half the price.

Should I bite the bullet and just wait for black friday sales and order arnott or has anyone had positive experiences with aftermarket brands?

Still trying to narrow down my shimmy...

Ball joints, upper and lower control arms, new rotors, wobbles like crazy.

Just ordered hubcentric rings for my oems . And ordered swaybar end links

Iíve had arnott on my last two x5s and I think itís a great bargain for the money.
Iíve heard bad stories about poor customer service from the other brands

I changed out a bad sway bar end link which cured my clunking noise. As far as the shaking I had a really bad shake coming from the front that was caused by a bad wheel balancing from sears. Once corrected the shake is non existent

I just learned tonight that I have e70 wheels on my e53. and I don't have hub centric rings. I wonder if the shop took them off thinking I did not need them since they are stock BMW rims. Ever since I got done getting the same balanced I've had a death wobble for the past 3 or 4 months

My poor 4.8 was taken from is too soon.

So, if I can get the dme coded for manual trans I think this engine needs to go into my e38.
Anyone know if that's doable?
In the meantime, I'll be crying in the corner missing my X.

Finished transmission rebuild/torque converter replacement, changed transfer case oil. It's nice to have it back on the road!
