Hi All,

I have a beautiful 2012 X5 50i that I love to death! Funnest car I'v ever had. As its getting up there in mileage (at 135k right now) I'm beginning to worry more and more about the major work that it will need. Specifically the valve stem seals that tend to run in the $3k range.

My question are:

1 Are there any signs that will tell you that the failure is coming soon?

Right now there do not seem to be nay signs. No smoke, runs great.

2 Is there anyway for me to check what work was done when they did the CCP?

3. What other things are expected? I can handle a decent amount of work myself. I fixed my turbo wastegates so I'm comfortable with working on it.

4. Anyone in AZ have gotten their Valve stem seals replaced for a decent price?

Thanks in advanced.
