2003 X5 3.0 5 Speed

Bought my X5 new in 2003, I have taken great care of it - just hit 320k - original clutch and motor! Picked it up in Spartanburg, North Carolina and drove it home to Connecticut. Wish BMW still made it in 5 speed.

Wow this is amazing! Original owner, original clutch, and of course we know the engine is bulletproof

So glad to see this!

Hey Guys!

Have had my 2006 3.0 6MT (Stratus Gray) for just over a year, and just completed a bit of a facelift on it. Also, just rolled over 123,000 miles

That color is a win.

I recently replaced the wheels on my 5MT, y'all might have seen in another thread.

Thanks for the kind words guys! I'll post up interior photos soon.

After putting the style 300 wheel on though, I'm getting some sort of whining noise coming from the transmission tunnel. Almost like the sound of a wheel bearing going bad, but a little deeper, and its mostly heard when the car is in gear and decelerating off throttle. I'm confused and concerned at the same time

That's interesting, mine is dong the same thing after changing the wheels. A little different though bc it only is whining under slight throttle, enough to keep me going but not accelerating/decelerating.

Yeah, I'm not sure what it could be. I wish BMW diagnostic fees weren't an arm and a leg...
