Ugh, my X3 did the same thing. Compressor seized so badly it shut the car down. Local shops quoted me 1500-1800 to fix it, what a joke.

No X5, but I had an X3 and ended up not liking it at all. Fortunately I was offered so little for my e46, I kept it.

The X3 is long gone. The e46 remains and I still love it.
