what is the last 7 digits of the vin of the X5 and what model/engine/year is the 5 series?
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement..the transmission that is used in your vehicle (verified by vin) is the A5S390R - 4-wheel unit.
this transmission is not used in any other bmw other than an X5 and there is no way to adapt other transmissions to work because the electronics, physical aspects of the transmission and its integration with the engine and abs systems are very specific. Not even a transmission from a*****diesel 5 series can be made to work, I'm afraid.
thus, to reiterate, no 5 series transmission can be made to function in your vehicle. I am sorry if this is not the answer that you were hoping for but I trust that my honest answer is appreciated. thank you for your attention to the positive rating requirement.Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
