After replacing a steering Column, the squeak noise disappear. I end up trade it in for a Lexus Rx350, after 12 months of ownership. I like the F15 a lot when everything is working, but you will never know something will break when you start the car in the morning.
I'm about to do the same

If you have a good dealer service department, by all means. If it's not under warranty anymore, then maybe a good independent in your area would be less expensive.

Apple CarPlay quits working and resets often. 2017 X5 xDrive35i
Going to dealer next week for diagnostic and probably will require a full reset and updating

My damn driver seat belt keeps twisting. Second time now I need to take it in for it to be turned around again.

Is the CD player slot actually a CD player?? Tried to put a CD in there and felt like there was way too much resistance and decided not to force it...

Have had the X5 for less than a week and love it so far, but this has me miffed.

Iíll have to try it again and see if itíll take a CD.

Iíve also noticed another issue. I usually just use the sattelite radio presets I set but noticed when using the scroll wheel on the steering wheel it intermittently defaults to the full sirius catalog instead of showing my presets. Anyone know how to make it so that wheel stays on my presets?

Went to the dealership today and had the shop foreman take a look at the CD player issue. They agree it is not working as intended and I have an appointment scheduled next week for them to fix or replace it. Hopefully I'm not out of the car for too long.

So have they resolved your issues yet? I can sure understand there are so many weird and strange things can occur with BMW cars..just yesterday I came out the car with the fob in my pocket and locked all door with a touch on the handle..the passenger side mirror automatically came down as well..hope this is not a sign of something new

On 12/29/17 Car completely turned off and immobile. Battery is good at 12.4V but nothing works. Had to use bmw connect to open and close door. Front and rear lights randomly turn on and off. It's been in service since 1/2/18 and still trying to figure it out. He said he has 2 others in service for same issue.

Oh and this Car is a month old, still have paper tags on them

Dealer fixed the CD player issue.

The mirrors folding sound like your car is coded for comfort access/exit to open/close the mirrors.

The HUD/steering wheel should default to whatever you're set too in the radio page (station vs preset)

I gave my car to service to fix the random hud not working, and comfort access not working once. they found the faults but couldn't reproduce the issues in shop, gonna look tomorrow again with foreman.

both these happens very randomly, with hud becoming more frequent.

I agree that it should, but for some reason it does not. I'll have the checkmark next to presets when I leave the car and sometimes when I return to the car, the checkmark is next to stations...and thus HUD/steering wheel brings up the whole catalog when I scroll...

For my HUD issue, they're going to replace the instrument cluster(will come from Germany)

For comfort access issues(only driver side door handles working), they're fixing it as well, will post details tomorrow when I see on paper what they did. All under warranty.
