    BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    My wife finds the tailgate heavy to handle so I looked for a way of automating it. Obviously the cost of a BM retro-fit would be inconceivable even if they would do it. Got the local garage to fit one of these for me. Total cost just under £600. No connection to the product other than a very...
