    I don't get it. I live in Bavaria Germany and here I have never heard or seen BMWs in such bad shape as you seem to like to divulge in every BMW video you make. How about comparing car culture and showing that in the US you don't have a "maintenance/inspection culture" specially for expensive imported cars. They buy the cars and run them until they almost die without never doing any maintenance. I know this because I also lived in the US and the "throw away culture" is very present with cars.

    How old do you mean? Just the e53? Or e70 too? My ‘08 4.8i X5 with 183k miles going strong with no leaks or issues aside from valve stem seals and windshield washer reservoir

    well, i'm from Italy, I bought last december (2020) a bmw 320D e46, same age of this x5 (also same aestethics), to be honest mine is perfect. Surprisingly perfect. All the things you demonstrated about the climate controls falling off, the door windows, the door handle, all those things were destroyed from previous owners, people who doesn't care at all how to open a door, how to close a door (neither I, but I certainly don't break the handle neither I shut the door so hard to let the windows fall off it's guide!) this car was extremely bad treated, but the components are perfectly resistant. Can clearly show you those things in my e46... that has same aestethics, same dashboard, same all.

    Well duh... I used to work at a small used car lot and the owner bought an old X5 with the 4.4 and let me tell ya it had issues when it came from auction. after he fixed it enough to sell it I loved driving it but I was glad it wasn’t mine....

    I'd say part of the issue is where it's built. These were made in South Carolina and were probably the earlier builds when the plant was newer. Production was probably rushed to they could get saleable vehicles out and make their production numbers. Warrantee issues were not the plants problem. That's the new mentality and is very hazardous to a companies reputation as we can see from Hoovie and the Wizard. Great business for the Ninja so its like a bit of corporate welfare :)

    I don’t get it, yeah any car would look like that if it went 150k miles with absolutely no maintenance . I’ve always bought first gen x3 and x5 with 100k miles and drove them well into 200k miles then sold them for decent prices. The m54 on those is solid, just keep up with leaks and overhaul the cooling system. You won’t be disappointed. Yeah that could cost like $3k, but if u pick up the car for $5k, it’s worth it considering Toyota 4runners at that mileage are like $20k and look like garbage inside with fabric seats. I have a 4Runner for a while it was garbage sold it for an x3 which i had 10 years and sold yesterday

    ok so what was wrong with it some plastics and some bushings a bad coil pack or someone put regular gas in it. he said the check engine light would come and go. I cant think of many cars i have ever been in that had a check engine light come and go they usually never go off in other cars. Even with all the dumb shit fucked up on this x5 the light only comes and goes. I will say this also i have owned plenty bmws and have loved all of them but i have had only few problems and those problems were caused my neglectful tendencies when i repaired minor shit and have learned from my mistakes and it has made me into an almost professional mechanic by working on these vehicles because you cant be a dumbass and work on gods vehicle only gods can work on gods vehicle anything less is blasphemy in the highest degree. I had my differential lock up on me a few weeks ago because i neglected to put the right amount of oil in the damn thing because i forgot about it when i redid my timing. I called every junk yard for a 100 mile radius even every pull a part which is about 5 around me even as far as 300 miles from me i could not find a single x5, 540,740,750 or any compatible bmw anywhere no junk yard that i contacted had a single bmw but they had plenty chevys,fords,toyotas,honda by the cargo boat load,nissans,subarus,gmc,buick,mercedes,audis,volkswagens, that tells me one of two things either BMW owners are to clingy with their bmw and cant let it go because they love it to damn much even if it breaks or they cant let it go because they are tight wads or they just never actually break like people think because people like this guy give them a bad name when he himself is having the time of his life in a beat down bmw with an occasional check engine light when chevy and honda owners have to take the bulb out to get it to go off lol its easy to find parts for them because they are so abundantly available everywhere peoples yards, junk yards, on the side of the road, ect lol this guy is a retard in my book and he should be ashamed for imprinting this idiotic thought process into weak minds. BUY AN X5 straight pipe it with some good tips throw some 20s on it you like drop it paint it and fucking enjoy the feeling of having the best sex with a vehicle you have ever had

    ​ @BLACK BIMMER I fucking love you lol i've seen your name several times before on forums i have read but any way this guy black beemer is completely right I own one of these and I love it. It has almost 200k miles i bought it at the car auction where we go to because i am a car dealer and a certified mechanic and i have driven almost every vehicle on the face of this planet and all in all i have loved this year model BMW more than any other vehicle i have ever had. Yes they do have certain problems like the timing issue and so does every other vehicle with a v-type engine. All v-type engines have guide problems that if not fixed at the time of recommended service it will destroy the engine and yes if you bring it to the dealership to get it fixed it will cost more to have it fixed than what you paid for the vehicle itself but if you are a mechanic and repair it yourself you will realize why BMWs are the best vehicles on the streets and you will also realize that everyone that says they are complicated to work on are complete ignorant idiots because i can redo the timing on a bmw x5 faster than i can remove an engine from a honda civic 1.8 with an extra hand. The timing has special tools you have to order that hold the cams in place and the crank in place where they are set and don't move while doing the job you can remove the chain and repair everything in just a few minutes time and then upon reassembly you time the vehicle with a voltmeter believe it or not with a voltmeter ya i said it and you don't have to line up marks on gears or any dumb shit. all the parts if removed in the proper order by someone that knows how to follow proper procedure will be able to tear the front of the engine down in less than 45 minutes flat. this guy is also right about the maintenance, people do not know how to maintain a vehicle and if you even put the wrong color antifreeze in these vehicles they will throw up on you literally they will spit the shit back out through the weep hole on the water pump because they dont drink boxed wine from the quicky mart if you put green antifreeze in them you will destroy the entire plastic water system in one day. They drink blue only, they take premium gas ONLY because they are HI-PO vehicles not meant for average pussy pedal prius driving bitches this vehicle in the rare 5.0 Hamann edition cost around 100k when it was new and is a performance monster i literally tried doing donuts in golden corral parking lot in mine during a fucking monsune and the all wheel drive capabilities on my x5 4.4i would not let me with trac control all the way off in 1st gear it had so much traction it would give you whiplash. they pull of at the light so hard they will give you a crick in you neck my wife literally removed the headrest from her seat because she got tired of smashing her head into it when i took off or when i was just cruising and decided to gas on it to fuck with her. Only true car guys and gals will know what a quality vehicle is and feels like this guy is picking out picky ass little details like hes high class with his nose in the air
