  1. I use Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel 0W-40 synthetic with good results.
  2. To this point, I do feel they are built to make it to through the warranty and thats about it. I feel the plastics used(especially in the interior) are terrible. When I drove in our old X5m, all I would hear is creaks and cracks when you corner or pull into driveways. Noisy and cheap feeling. Hop into a Porsche Cayenne and they are whisper quiet. My last Cayenne went 140k miles with virtually nothing but brakes and tires. At 140K, it still drove like new. I'll never get a X5m again.
  3. That's a hard NO!! No warranty = not worth it to me. A 2002 or any of my hobby cars, I'll pull a motor, do paintwork, etc.. that's fun. A daily driver, I can barely bring myself to change the oil! I hate working on a daily. Your right about the resale, it's terrible. It forces you to park it on the side of your house like an old farmer and let it rust away..
  4. No, the car does. Who goes to the dealer? lol... Regardless of if you do the work or not, both your time and the parts are worth money.
  5. They are awful. My coworker would have to work on his and his sisters like every other weekend. Our X5M caught fire and needed a major rebuild(BMW did cover it). They nickle and dime you to death but those nickles and dimes are more like $20's and $100's. You are better off owning a bicycle.
  6. Just call the driveshaft shop - the best - https://www.driveshaftshop.com/import-axles?cat=16 most of what they sell can easily handle 1000hp with 1 year warranty
  7. I'm trying to find some 295's for the rear. The small diameter and large width is tough. They have great historic rally/race tires I may try. ps - I have 245's on all 4 corners..
  8. Just cut the fenders and go 245's!
  9. Dave, thanks for the reply. No, I am not in the group and I always forget to look on that page. Let me know. Shoot me a pm, I'm in the west burb. edit - I just joined that group!
  10. Anyone have Recaro front seats? Restored or not, let me know.
  11. I don't know what you mean by a while ago but, I was emailing with him at the end of 2017 and he still was selling stuff. EDIT - I reached out and I do have a valid email if you want it, just pm me.
  12. It has to be an illusion. My car is mocked up as low as it can go without raising suspension pick up points and the rocker to the ground is still 6" to 8" off the ground. That being said, it needs shortened shock/strut shafts to even work and or to modify pick up points. ps - that's with no bump stops either so.. no good.
  13. Nice looking engine bay! What engine management are you using?
  14. Yup, I just wanted to make sure the OP knew this. If you do jackshaft openers, make sure you run new electrical up to them too otherwise in an old garage, you won't have an outlet near them.
