When my tensioner bearing went out it wouldn't make much noise at idle either, but sounded like a flute when I was driving based on engine speed. The stethoscope helped pinpoint it because it was...

Do you have a stethoscope? They are invaluable in tracking down noises like these. It sounds like it could be an idler pulley or tensioner pulley bearing. The stethoscope will allow you to "zoom"...

If it had MID, it didn't have Nav. You will need a lot to install a factory nav unit just to have ancient technology. Get an android head unit. You'll be glad you did.

I have an Avin Avant 4. I highly recommend. I don't think you'll find anything worthwhile for $100. Maybe someone wants to sell a used Avin because they're upgrading? Might be worth checking...

That sounds like stock height, but the 1/2" difference is odd.

Ya, I found that too, but it is for older model LCD's. The ones for the 2006 don't have the adjustment.

I tried that on mine before I swapped the head unit for an AVin unit. The viewing angle was wrong even though the seller said it was supposed to work on an e53. Based on the viewing angle the LCD...

+2 on that. Wish I'd known when I replaced my tank. Ended up having to take things apart twice as I had to have the truck drivable while I waited for replacement thermostat.

$290 for a $115 bearing is also ridiculous. FCP has genuine BMW rear axle bearing for $115. They have the SKF, which is OEM, for $113. $290 for a cheap ass Chinese bearing is a total rip off. ...

How much do they check packages coming in from the US? I'm thinking you order in the US, have shipped to a US address and that person reships it to you from their address. Would that work? If you...

It's not that bad. Run them down the right side, it's less work that way. Otherwise you're pulling out the center console which is a PITA.

+1 on the original nav system. The screen was crap too. A replacement head unit like the Avin with the smaller screen looks exactly like the original nav, but with tons more functionality.

The Avin unit, IBUS App and Resler device are worth it for that screen there alone. There are several options available within some of those items as well, like HP can give you a torque read out.
