I am lucky, Arizona has nice smooth roads around Phoenix, very surprised they lasted all these miles. My inner tire was wearing so figured would just do the refresh. ball joints were torn

Glad you realized the wear was likely ball joint related not just alignment. (ball joint on the bottom but also the ball joint on the wishbone arm)

The idea for an impromptu 1,000 miler was conceived in Wednesday, born on Thursday, and both worry or anxiety-free by our return home today. There is simply nothing like being able to hook up your family (and a daughter's boyfriend) for a little drop in the ole mileage bucket. We had a great day, good food, and of course.. reliable service:

(also, special shout out to my current post count.. My lil '02 might be in service before I'm 60. )

190,000 miles, 2006 x5 6spd, 1/12/2022 while sitting in ski area parking lot, a good day all around.

Extra good day; that's a high miles for all pixels on your dash :-)

Pretty sure the LCI update sorted the dash pixels issues - it seems to mostly affect pre-LCI cars.

I hope!!

I had the radio pixel fix done 6/8/2016 @ 122,100 miles

I did have to drop off the x5 today to have driver and passenger
external door handles fixed. Subzero temps and road salt do not
play well with the door handles.

Well there ya go - seems LCI cars can have the issue.

Seems much rarer though...

*edit* - Just realised you said *RADIO* (meaning MID) pixels - not dash - so hoping my assumption the LCI dash clusters don't suffer pixel issues is still correct.

MID pixels ARE still an issue in LCI cars - BTDT.

For some reason the pixels in my 2003 tend to all work when it is sub-freezing out. In the summertime they are mostly unreadable but they work most of the winter. A few times I have seen both displays working perfectly (not a single missing pixel) and every time has been extremely cold out.
