Does anyone experience the defrosting of the front windows taking too long? Our 05 X3 was fogged up recently and it took several minutes (say 3 or 4) until I could get the front windshield to defrost. It seems the blowers are not that strong especially compared to my 01 330i. The 330i defrost works in less than 1 minute and the blower is much stronger. I had the dealer check it out and he said he compared it to other X3s and it was the same... anyone else experience this???? :thumbdwn:

On my '04 X3 2.5 the defroster vents melt the snow and ice lightining fast. I can cheat on the brushing and scraping often. Sounds like yours is not working correctly. You should see the a/c (snowflake) indicator lit for maximum defogging.
