Question Answered: 

Is your X5 a 6 or 8 cylinder? My money is on 8? If so, this is potentially a known issue. The repair will start with plugs and ignition coils, but it could potentially require more. Do you also get a flashing check engine light?

Question Answered: 

Most common cause we see for an oil leak in the area of the engine you are replacing parts in is the oil filter stand gasket. Also check the vanos gasket and vanos line and washers. For the coolant leak you need to pressure test the system as it could be coming from any of the parts you already replaced or someplace else.

Question Answered: 

Topping off the coolant is simple, just make sure you use BMW coolant. The sunroof drains on the X3 are an issue and cause 99% of water buildup in the rear cargo compartment of the car. To clear them out you need to blow high pressure compressed air through the lines. You can access the drain lines either by blowing air through a tube run into the drains in the sun roof cassett or though by removing the roof liner in the back.

The standard proceedure is too replace the ballast. You can swap your ballast side to side to check and make sure that is the issue. We will not charge you a diag fee if you want it replaced by a train professional.

It can not be done through the cluster. It has to be reprogrammed by either the dealer whomost likely won't do it, or an independant shop with the correct computer equipment to do so. Need to make the car thinks it's Canadian, eh.
