Hi all new BMW X5 e53 owner, love it but got couple questions I hope you might be able to help me out with, had it inspected/general health check just after I bought it to confirm I did,nt buy a lemon, anyway Indy garage said I need rear subframe bushes doing, I did expect that as there was a clunk and creek when moving off from low speed, any suggestions on make off sub mounts apart from poly ones, also looking to rent/hire the tool to do the job, would rather hire from a fellow member but if not a option I will do so from eBay, also just installed DVDs headrests and want to wire them in via tapping into a 12v source, tried centre console cig lighter but no joy for DVDs,s, checked cig lighter works and works fine with engine on or off. Sorry it's bit long winded and thanks for taking the time to read, all suggestions will be very welcome. Kindest regards.

subframe bushes are easy to do yourself if you've got the tool. 4 bushes will cost you about 80 pounds and the tool about 190 pounds then youll need about two hours to do the job, well depending on your skill level, I didn't bother with poly bushes as theyre too expensive for no or little gain, I done mine as I replaced nearly every suspension component as all the rubber sushes and ball joints seemed old and tired and was in a position to do so, if you wasn't so far away id say bring the vehicle over and id do the bushes for 150 all in but somerset is a long way to drive to Canterbury!
