Just took delivery of a 2014 and there appears to be a coin stuck in the front console/cup holder area. Not visible but driving me crazy at stop/start. Dealer want $500 to investigate, as it is not part of the warranty. Recommendations?

Fixed. Took all day due to software or something update which meant a number of things were lost (memory of seat and preset, all doors locking). Had a Mini Clubman D for loaner. Lot bigger than my wife's 2016 convertible and felt it.

Always roles around at stop/start?

And was it like this when you took delivery? If delivered from BMW dealer, I'd just raise some hell.

BUT...I had this issue and spent about 2 hours taking apart the center console to get to it. There's a channel that runs to the rear for the AC vents. Perfect spot for a coin to role around.

Had the ENGINE LIGHT ON warning for about 2 weeks. Nearby dealerships had no servicing openings so ignored the warning as the car was running fine. Today, the light mysteriously went off...? I hope it doesn't randomly come back on.

Why doesnt have the x5 come with a trailer hitch

I have to say one of the most maddening features of the my x5 is that BMW didn't have an option of trailer hitch. Nope i don't want to tow with my x5, but i want to put my bike hitch, so i can put our four bikes on it.

It make me so jealous to see every audi and benz have this feature.

I mean why would they create a SUV, thats meant for familes without this?

We don't sit at home and watch TV, we get out and have fun.

Does this drive anyone else mad?

jxr006 Good news is, BMW DO have it as an option @945.
Bad news I don't think its an option in NA.

I have no idea what you are talking about since i have an x6 and have a trailer hitch and my last x5 as well .... This is an option. You clearly have not talked to a dealer and i am in NA. And if you have you need to find a new BMW Dealer that knows what they are talking about.

but you had to pay +$1000 to get that done.

most cars it's standard... or at most a $650 option, and its not a bolt on, where your bumper is cut, etc...

i ordered a after market one at etrailer. If their new gen doesn't have from manufacturer, i'm moving to MB when my lease is up.

Hello
I have a BMW X5 F15 and I carry out maintenance and service myself.
Is there a possibility of recording the maintenance operations history ( date , mileage ) in the computer of the car in order to see the service history on the control screen via idrive?

May be with ISTA software or with E-Sys or other software, or by hidden menus of the dashboard?

Hi all,

Have a 2015 X5 msport with adaptive suspension. I have been hearing some knocking sound when going over unstable road, like small bumps, and sometimes when stoping and braking gently.
Problem happened (or I started hearing the knocking )after I replace my run-flat tires to non run-flats.
Car has 46,000km ODO . Its driving me nuts. the sound appears to be coming from either engine or passenger side.

What could this be??

Issue with back door A/C vent - wierd max A/C sound on and off

Friends,

I have a month old 2017 X5 and today I had a problem.

Suddenly, the A/C vent in the side of the 2 back doors started making strange sounds. Its the sound u hear when u turn max A/C on......the max a/c sound comes and goes off. Then again it comes after 15-20 seconds and keeps repeating on and on.

I took it to the BMW dealer service and he said never seen like this and said he needed more than a day to look at it.

Have any of you experienced this before? Am a bit worried as it's been just 3 weeks on a brand new car. Is it fixable?

I have a 2014 X5D
1) had steering squeaky issue fixed once last year. However it comes back again this week...
2) soft close door ajar while driving, fixed last year.
3) interior rattling issue mostly close to the trunk area.
4) steering wheel does not extent far enough for tall drivers - i'm 6'3"
5) standard suspension setup has poor quality gas shock absorbers issue. The springs are too hard but shocks does not have enough rebound or compression to balance vibrations.
6) dashboard flicking fuel gauge LED light - day time when in white.
7) poor windshield wiper design.
8) excessive use of cheap plastic. Example - interior trunk lid bottom, B pillar & etc.
9) horrible sound of the horn.

Picked up my brand new from the factory X5 yesterday and when I try open the tailgate with the pressure pad it will not open manually. I am pretty sure the car was fully unlocked.

Anyone had a similar issue?

Picked up my new X5 xdrive40e last Thursday. While going through the vehicle with the BMW Genius we noticed that the front camera wasn't working. The service center took 30 minutes trying to resolve it to no avail, so they had us leave and said they'd order the part. The check engine light was on, but all systems were shown as OK, and from a quick internet search it appeared to be related to the camera.

We dropped the car off Saturday and picked up a loaner, and Monday they let us know that the check engine light was due to a bad a/c compressor. They said none were available in the US and we had to wait for one to be shipped from Germany.

We're definitely not happy to have these issues on what should be a perfect brand new car. I've asked the dealer for something to compensate us for the inconvenience, but their view is that providing a loaner is good enough. Should I reach out to BMW NA? What, if anything, would they do?

Garage List
2014 X5 35i  [0.00]
2015 428 Gran Coupe  [0.00]
2014 X5. Up to about 48000 miles now. Here is my list of problems:
Rear door lock actuator replaced
Floor mats replaced (Velcro came off) (done twice)
Xenon bulb failure, replaced ignition unit
Battery Replaced
A/C Failed - Replaced evaporator temperature sensor & shrader valves
Both rear seat heaters failed - replaced heating elements
A/C "Crackling" noise - replaced evaporator, receiver dryer & seal kit

New issues to be addressed at my final warranty service:
Center console creaking and leather discolored
LED light strips on all doors and left of instrument panel no longer light up. Only the LED strip to the right of the IP works
Information in dash lower part with odometer, time, temp, etc. has displayed no information twice (gone blank). Only the selected gear shows up.

With these electrical issues popping up just before warranty expires I am very concerned...!!!

i'm sure this topic has been discussed so before I start, I just picked up my new X5 yesterday and just noticed that the A/C turns automatically on whenever I turn the car on. How do I change the settings to stop this?
