Then this won't surprise you. I sent them an email voicing my displeasure and asking for a refund but do you think I've heard back from them? There also seems to be some friction in the outer joint....

Lightbulb Car no go, wheels no spin, brain no function

In a nutshell, the X won't move when in gear. I had just completed replacement of a left front air bag and the stingiest damn CV axle shaft assembly I've ever seen. It took a 20 ton press to pop the...

Good stuff. I just started noticing this fault code as well. I'm just going to ignore. No CEL's, no performance issues, no problem.

I need to get my pressure washing to where I can set it up easy. The X5 gets more spray up from the tires than any vehicle I've owned plus the wheels dust up so bad. I love having a clean car but I'm...

The hardest part are removing the clips that hold the top studs. I had two come off easy and the other two were a pain. My bags came with new clips.

It was the MAF all along. It took 4 separate scans to pick up the code. I ordered a cheap MAF from Oreilly's because I need to get to job tomorrow, that's if $140 is considered cheap. There were...

Yesterday was the drivers door handle carrier. Today was rear air bags. I cannot wait until it warms up so I can really get caught up. Only 2 faults left and, dare I say, I will be all caught up....

Engine starts, won't idle. No codes or CEL. **SOLVED!**

After fiddling with the HID's yesterday I start the X and the idle starts fluctuating and dropping every so slightly with each fluctuation until the motor dies. I started it again. It starts fine and...
