So far I've only gotten these parts from a wrecker. once I get the cargo cover to fully fit I will update the thread


I installed the amp a long time ago and never got around to keeping the subs in. the box took up too much space and the factory sound system sounds good enough for me

Picked up an X5m steering wheel with nappa leather from a wrecker in Alberta a few weeks ago. Install was fairy straight forward minus running wires from the steering wheel to the transmission. Also noticed the X5m wheel doesn't get nearly as warm as the original sport wheel did but it's not that big of a deal.

Oh yeah..... that's a super nice addition to have that wheel. It's on my list as well. Very nice.

Replaced the VCG over the weekend. I had replaced injector 5&6 earlier this year because of water damage from the broken partitions. When we pulled out injector 4 we did not expect it to look like this! Checked the resistance and it checked out. Never had any driveability issues with it either.

Lowered the X5d with B8 shocks & Eibach springs up front and via ISTA with B4 shocks in rear

The ride quality is a little stiffer (not bouncy) now with much less body roll on curvy mountain roads. The other thing is the steering wheel feels slightly heavier. I'm wondering how the ride would change if I went with B4's all the way around

Looks very nice. The added handling is nice too, though is the low-speed turning effort increased? My wifes x35d is already very heavy compared to the servotronic in my E53 x5. Wouldn't bother me, but could see it bothering some.

Thanks guys!

Vacuum pump gaskets were leaking so replaced them



You can see the rubber gasket has shrunk in size and it's flat with the housing. No wonder they were leaking





And all cleaned up



Changed the power steering fluid and filter


old fluid


The original filter in the reservoir at 145,000km wasn't all that dirty



Installed ATM's ASV hose before the factory one gave out in the mountains on a long road trip




Replaced the gaskets that seal the inner taillights before water corroded the electrical connectors on the rear
