My Ride: 2004 X5 3.0
made a deal to trade it in on an x5. Time to upgrade. Picking it up monday. Trading one set of problems for another. Will post details as they develop. Was able to pull a few things off the car before I worked out the deal. Will have a pretty healty f/s thread popping up here shortly. Kinda sad to be moving on, but this car was never the right fit for me.

A gentleman never tells but I paid about a third of what he paid new for full package a year ago and tires are good and still 60% there...

So you disagree with top gear and want the austrian? I thought it was a rav4 for split second. I think looks pretty nice, seemed to ride decent.

Epoxyed a mount to a fabbed up piece of aluminum. Epoxyed the other piece of mount to otter box case. The aluminum piece slides into the dash under the radio on the right side. No pics of it in car yet. Its dark already.

I still have to sand and paint the aluminum piece. Its easily installed and removed with no modification to car. Mainly for road trips.
