Unlike the E90 which prevents driving when overheating, X3 doesn't have that at least not that old of one so I'd agree with that.

You don't need the timing disc set for compression test you'll only be turning the crank by hand. You do need to have the cam shafts all roughly timed so you don't have valve/piston interference. You...

Correct. Like I mentioned earlier, test the low pressure switch before filling to make sure it's not failed closed. If the switch is working it will close when you put in the first can.

Do you have air cooled or water "cooled" alternator (funny that it's filled with 100C water to me). I'm pretty sure my air cooled Alternator spends 99.8% of it's life cooler than 100C!

Nice. It took me two days to remove the exhaust manifolds from two M62s. And that's with no nuts stripping!

Perseverance pays off.

I don't know if that can cause a problem once running. It will prevent a start but it's specifically designed to not possibly reconnect once it opens.

I was going to suggest the same. It does look like there is room. I've used those in the past on 3/8 to 1/2" size bolts that had 25 yr rusted on.

2005 E53 4.4i N62 Misfire Help!

Two weeks plenty of time to gum up plugs if the engine is not running properly. You need to check at least a couple of the cylinders with the misfires.

What did you do to / for your E53 today??

Angle grinder won't fit else that'd be my first suggestion. Dremel with extension cable would probably work. It's hard to cut a nut off without cutting the bolt bolt also.
