Well done though sorry to hear about the F25's untimely demise.

Wishing you many miles of smiles.

What work do you have planned? I just had to replace my alternator.

Brad

Hello all,

Adding to the list my 2000 BMW X5 5-speed. Purchased in April with 113k miles and have around 114k now. It is Schwartz on Black leather interior with the cold weather package, and digital climate control. During my ownership, I've been fixing a number of things that have popped up due to the X5 sitting for multiple years in a garage (previous owner had it as a spare car never used). I've done the valve cover gasket, new coils / plugs, and am in the process of having the ABS module rebuilt. I've also purchased the Lemforder front suspension rebuild kit from FCP Euro, but have not yet installed.

It's a great truck and a nice compliment to the other old BMWs in the stable (1998 M3 sedan auto, 1994 540i 6-speed, 1990 535i 5-speed, 1989 535i auto).

Great buy! I laughed a bit because literally all of the issues you described, I have been through and done. I recommend the OEM aux cord kit, p/n 82110149390. It's cheap, and with a bluetooth audio adapter, it's a perfect setup.

Compass mirrors are PnP. I found mine at a pull-a-part from a 2006, and paid $5 for it.

MID pixels were a big hit to the wallet. I think I paid $800 for a new unit after getting fed up buying used ones that didn't work.

This is why I joined this forum. I knew I'd get great nuggets of info like this.
Thank you for the aux part number, and info on the mirror. I'm all about these solutions.

I'm going to quote your reply in my thread to keep track for my own records.

FWIW, I bought the aux cord and installed it according to the instructions, but it never worked for me. That was before my PA soft days so it may have just needed coding or something.

I don't believe it needs coding.

I've never been able to get it working either. In my case it's because my Becker CD54 unit doesn't support it (I think) but it could also be because there are several variation on the wiring required, depending on the exact head unit you have...
