Mine has 119K. Bought it a couple years ago with 108K. Trans fluid and filter had been changed prior to my ownership. But I do have a hard shift from 1st to 2nd. Doing some reading and there appears to be a seal/o-ring in the valve body that I need to replace to alleviate this harsh shift. I just need to identify which one.

I bought new to me pair of X5s in 2015.

128k and 112k (miles) back then and 190 & 182 today. It's actually a good thing to have a pair of them. We have interchanged parts on several occasions to avoid an expensive tow. Just needed a ride to the car. Once was a cam shaft sensor once was the fuel pump. Also when one part fails usually on the higher mileage car, i know what's coming and already have fixed it. Great example is the DISA valve

BMW X5 E53 Mileage Input

I have owned many BMW's over the years, and I tend to want to keep them for the long term, so it all comes down to maintenance, and I don't mean factory specifications, but every 7500 at most with full synthetic oil and no cheap Chinese crap filters is secret to longevity.

I just sold my 03 4.4 X5 with 235500 on it, never burned a drop of oil, not even the smoke after long idle from valve seals. I did replace valve cover gaskets at 212K as they were leaking into spark plug recesses. Only engine parts replaced were timing chain tensioner at 212K when I did gaskets and plugs. I did cam solenoid at 231K as passenger bank started missing randomly suddenly. Original cam chain guides, amazing.

When I think back over the years, yes, hoses went, rear PCV was replaced when hoses collapsed due to winter and moisture. Water tank leak, hoses replaced, but overall, amazing vehicle. Battery lasted over 7 years, Alternator lasted to 195K. Radiator replaced at 189K. Usual window guides, one door handle, one driver door lock latch assembly, usual speedo digits out, but overall, one of the best BMW's I have owned, sorry it is gone, but transmission was getting a little off occasionally and would hang up in third while in sport mode, did services three times, so figured it was time to move on.

What is the mileage of your X5?

It would take too long to find but occasionally I'll have the presence of mind to reset my trip odo just at the right time to play nice with the main odo. I forget what the last one I did that with.

I did manage to catch 123456 on wife's car. Might have actually been that one where I reset the trip at 123378 so I had 78 on the trip. You don't get many opportunities like that
