So my new CV Drive axle came in today. The clicking had gotten really frequent lately so I was refraining from driving it as my daily driver. Then I worked on it this weekend, putting a new old level...

Everyone seems to make note to mark the driveshaft and then the flange so it goes back in the same orientation as it came out. Without having a driveshaft, and picking one up from wherever, I wonder...

The VIN decoder shows it as "All Wheel Drive". Nope, no 4x4 lights on the dash at all. I've been chasing down and fixing codes and other things on this car since I bought it but I've never seen...

Thanks Andrew, much appreciated! The parts won't be here until this time next week so I'll have a little time to put it all together in my mind and gather the appropriate tools.

Yeah, I saw that video. I wanted to take the intake off, not try to work under it. It looks like his didn't have the cold weather kit on it. With the cold weather kit, you almost have to beat the...

Where's my oil going?

2006 3.0 and I can't seem to keep oil in the thing. I'm guessing we're looking at a loss of 1 qt every 300-400 miles. It doesn't smoke and there are no huge puddles in my parking spot. This time...

Not sure if this helps, but on the e53, if the front fan isn't working, the A/C won't work. Start your car, let it get to temp and see if the fan comes on. If not, then there is your issue. I bought...

Thanks for the thoughts on it. Are wheel bearings pretty easy on the X5? I've pulled the brakes all off and I can't see any indication of anything rubbing. It really is an odd sound. Kind of a hollow...

2008 worth upgrading to?

Currently driving a 2006 3.0 with 145,000 miles on it. Ran across a 2008 3 SI for sale with low mileage (approx 80K). Test drove it and it was considerable different than my ‘06. It left me with a...
