    #1, What kind of plugs are the NGKs you got? Single electrode ground or multiple? I'd get the codes read before doing anything to verify the miss didn't follow the coil swap.

    As long as you're doing suspension work, checkout this video from VAC motorsports on the rear ball joints. Common failure and it will wear out your new tires in record time....

    Did I send you the PDF that shows the components of the air suspension? You have to trace back from that air bag. I would assume a leak would be forward of the valve. Otherwise, all the air bags...

    Swap to coilovers.... you're beginning to see what I mean about the air suspension, eh?

    The air suspension on the X5 is pretty cool. I can relate to why you'd want to keep it. We felt the same way until realized how much we spent fixing it. I just don't want to see you go down the same...

    Convert the X5 to standard suspension. The air suspension is a bottomless pit, trust me.

    The dealer replaced my valve cover gasket under warranty about 9 years and 100k miles ago... I just swapped it last month because I figured it needed to be done but it was still in perfect shape and...

    Keep an eye on those air bags. The system will compensate for a leaking air bag by running the compressor so you may not notice it. If the compressor runs too long, it burns out. The air bags become...

    I can help you with the X5. The air suspension inactive and tire pressure light on together means that the air suspension module is most likely gone bad. There are several other things that you...
