When should you service the BMW X5? Recommended X5 service is divided into three mileage intervals:

Every 10,000 miles: Change the oil and filter, and inspect belts, hoses, brakes, steering, fluid levels, and suspension.
Every 30,000 miles: Inspect and possibly replace brake pads and inspect exhaust.
Every 60,000 miles: Replace spark plugs and air filters, and check brakes, the battery, and drive belts.

Does the BMW X5 require premium gas? To get the very best performance from the X5, BMW officially recommends 93-octane fuel. However, it's not dangerous to run regular unleaded. Several years ago, in a New York Times article, BMW spokesman Thomas Plucinsky, explained it like this:

"There generally isn't any harm done to the engine by using lower-octane fuel. Because our engines do have very good forms of knock sensing and are able to deal with lower-octane fuels, you will not have any drivability issues. You will, however, lose some of the performance. "

Does the BMW X5 come with Apple CarPlay? Yes. A one-year trial subscription to Apple CarPlay is standard.
