    Joop's 2010 X5///M Project Thread

    I suppose its time to start a project thread for the X5. As most of you know, the vehicle was purchased for my wife, but I bought an ///M version so that I could enjoy it too, as I not only traded in her car for this, but also sold my ZHP. This thread will document the maintenance, mods, and fun I have with this vehicle. Excited to figure out a few one off custom ideas as well as bolt on some upgrades. Of course, some maintenance and cleanup will be done first. Overall though, a good starting point.

    2010 BMW X5 ///M
    Silverstone II metallic
    Black Nappa leather
    Piano Black Trim
    Cold Weather Package
    Driver Assistance Package
    Premium Sound Package
    Comfort Access
    High Gloss Roof Rails
    Power Tailgate

    It has a lot of other options as well, but what's listed are only non-standard options not already included on the ///M model. So, to us, it feels pretty loaded up. Of course, it has mounds of power, but its still plenty drivable in "normal" mode. Overall, I think we'll love the vehicle, it brings a great blend of utility vehicle and performance toy.

    Maintenance needed:
    -Slight clunk/rattle over bumps... Front swaybar end links purchased in hopes it'll do the trick.
    -Emissions light kicked on... Right bank O2 sensor.
    -Rear brakes are 3500 miles from being due.

    Mods so far:
    BMW Performance CF Front Splitter
    BMW Performance CF Mirror Covers
    BMW Performance Gloss Black Kidney Grills
    Black Fender Gills
    Black Badges
    OEM Euro Clear Front Corner Lenses
    BMW 21" Style 239 wheels, 21x10" and 21x11.5"
    BMW OEM LED interior bulbs
    Yellow powdercoated brake calipers
    Tinted windows (Llumar FormulaOne Pinnacle 35% and Llumar AirBlue80)


    There will surely be additions to both the maintenance and the mod list! But for now, I think we're well on our way. I'll update the below list as time goes on...

    08/28/14- 31,765 miles- Purchased
    12/03/14- 35,517- Front swaybar end links
    12/08/14- 35,472- Oil service and swap out spark plugs
    01/08/15- 37,023- Replace iDrive Controller
    01/11/15- 37,119- Replace O2 sensor, Bank 2, sensor 2 (passenger side, post cat)
    01/15/15- 37,xxx- Install K&N intake filters
    02/04/15- 38,019- Replaced Vaccum pump and turbo intake tube seals
    03/25/15- 39,697- Brake fluid flush/bleed, replaced cabin microfilters
    03/30/15- 39,923- Replace brake pads, Centric Posi-Quiet, all 4 wheels

    Hahah, to be honest, I didn't like them at first, but they've grown on me... And for what its worth, my wife absolutely will not let me change them out. She admitted that anytime she sees a car with colored brake calipers, it turns her on... I was kind of shocked to hear this.. And here all along I've been painting them black.

    Jon - finally this thread shows up! Yah I know you've been away at work

    So are you ditching any of the previously installed mods, or adding any new ones? What are your plans?

    With some help I completed some custom coding on my X5 today and it was $ well spent. Highly recommended.
