Daughter looking to buy. Never had a foreign car before. Wondering if worth the money and what to expect in future costs.

Hi all,

I am looking to buy a 04 BMW X5 4.8 is at a dealer. Upon test driving, there was a strong vibration in the vehicle at idle. As I drove the vehicle the vibrations went away, however, the vibration returned as I came to a stop. There were no other noises, brakes work awesome, the vehicle has an awesome pickup. No unusual sounds were detected by me. However, I am concerned about the vibration. The car has been keyed bumper to bumper, tires are in good condition. The dealer is asking $11K, Can anyone advise as to what would be a good price for a vehicle as such? Thanks, much, in advance.

I recently had the water pump and thermostat replaced on BMW X5 4.4i. Since that repair it appears that I have a real bad oil leak.

Question 1. Could it be the oil pan drain plug is loose and needs to be tighten.

Question 2. If something was not done properly when the water pump and thermostat were replaced would it cause an oil leak to occur?

Thanks in advance for your assistance and if you have any other suggestions please provide.


at times the motor will crank longer than normal, you will stop cranking and try again and motor will start but you will smell heavy fuel out the tail pipe and motor will be ruff and than clear up, has 52psi fuel pressure at start.

the driver and passenger doors would not open from the exterior, however I could roll down the windows and open them from the inside. The repair was quoted at 668.45 per door, labor included. I thought that was too much. I sourced the parts which were 125.00 each. labor 150.00 per hour.
