Mr.X5_3.0si-retired is on a distinguished road
just got my '07 3.0Si back
i was having some delay with acceleration in lower RPM's
they found the tranny sleeve seal leaking and oil filter housing gasket leaking
looks like they replaced oil filter housing too??.. showing a price of $472 so i'm sure the gasket itself is not that price.
replaced oil pan and filter, oil filter stand gasket
so warranty covered that then of course there's more
coolant hose was starting to dry rot along with the vent piping.. $160
they charged me for refilling anti-freeze.. $23
charged me for atf synthetic.. $59
charged me for windshield washer fluid.. $7
replaced left brake light blub... $4

after warranty i ended up paying $430.. not too impressed as i sent it in thinking everything would be covered by warranty
was done at an Indy shop because of warranty we can't pick and chose where to have it repaired really

the guy came back and dropped the key off
took it too the gym and back, seems to be fixed
now i wonder if i should still get a sprint booster

Installed the Lux V4 angel eyes. Very pleased with the results. However, installation became a process in that the left bulb was absolutely fused at the gasket. Ended up twisting off the end and from there it was a giant mess. Ended up drilling two holes with a Dremel tool to insert two steel pins to be able to create leverage. On further twisting more disintegration and more of a mess. Became a dismantling piece process and then a delicate piece removal process including using a magnet and a special attachment to my shop vacuum to try the best I could to clean up my mess. Wonder what I could and should have done differen? Heat gun, or WD-40? Obviously hoping not for a repeat but it would be good to save someone else.

Installed OEM trailer hitch. Went fairly smooth and took about 2.5 hours. The wiring was the least fun. '08 X5. Now I can use my boat again as I sold my previous towing vehicle (Suburban) last week.
