Our new used 2012

Our new addition.

Traded in the 09 X3, got very frustrated with it. Leak from the vapour barriers, which led to some other complications.

Traded it in for a used 2012 35i, wow what a difference. An absolute rocket..Ride quality, handling etc. is so much better...

Pretty much everything I could want. It does not have start stop, which doesn't bother me at all..

Our dealership was amazing, cant say enough about our experience.

Very nice. It's got the 28i's wheels on it. Wonder what they did with the originals? (Unless that is what comes standard on the 35i in Canada)

Dehcho 03-03-2013 06:26 PM

PS..

Driving it the last few days highway city combined is averaging 11litters/100

Really? i didn't realize. it is an early 2012 model, could that be it?

lbjgh 03-04-2013 08:15 AM

Those are the correct wheels for the non-M-sport.

Nice looking car!

Dehcho 03-04-2013 06:27 PM

Thanks for the reply!! Yes i checked the sales brochure for the 2012 35i and there they are::)


Out driving today and no buyers remorse here.. Love it, so much better that the 09! completely different vehicle..

So we have had the car 2 weeks and really are enjoying it...a blast to drive, upwards of 30 mpg highway.

We took the car to the dealer today to have the protection package applied..we go pick the car up and as we are pulling into the lot we notice an ambulance and police. And our new x3 in the middle of it all... t boned as the detailer was pulling it back into the lot after detailing and protection package..

Extensive damage to the passenger side front fender and door... I would say $4000 damage. Not sure what will happen next, but I don't really want the car anymore.


:cry:

The X Men 03-19-2013 06:09 AM

Wow, what a turn of events. I would hold the detailer or the dealership fully responsible and ask for a new used car or your money back. The detailer was probably having a little too much fun with your car and a bit careless. There is really no excuse for mistreating a customer like that as far as I am concerned.

Chitown-Irish 03-19-2013 11:06 AM

So very sorry to hear about the fate of your new vehicle. We all feel your pain. Get yourself a good lawyer.

Tangsta 03-19-2013 12:43 PM

Wow. Very sorry to hear about that turn of events. These cars seem really hard to come by used and in good shape.

These are the standard wheels for the 35i in Canada. Seems the 28i and 35i have switched wheels compared to the US, I noticed this one day when I found myself on the bmwusa website.

I happen to like these ones better though, so I'm glad my 35i came with this style.

lbjgh 03-19-2013 01:48 PM

Wow, what a brutal turn of events!

Make sure you get the depreciated value of the car out of the insurance company, ie, $4K for damages and $3K for the depreciated value of the car.

Dehcho 03-19-2013 06:17 PM

Here is the outcome...

Full refund on our car, and and new x3 at cost. Will most likely take the deal and go for a new Msport...

I think it is a very reasonable offer....


Thanks for the replies.....

Hardrada 03-19-2013 06:55 PM

It sounds like a great outcome for you. I was sad on your behalf when I read your above post about the damage, but I was thinking that in the end BMW would make you whole. They've treated me very, very well over the years especially with any problems I've had and been upfront with me that at their kind of price point it is a lot harder to find a new customer than keep a loyal one. It was hard to believe they'd leave you hanging as a dissatisfied customer. Congrats on a great deal.

Sounds (almost) good to me. There's one element missing. What are you going to drive in the meantime?

Me, I would settle for what you posted, but it never hurts to ask for a bit more... Like a BMW loaner...

Dehcho 03-19-2013 07:33 PM

Good point....

They have supplied us with a beautiful 2013 328i....


I really can't say enough about the service we have received.

02420X3 03-19-2013 07:36 PM

Outstanding!

When all is done, and you are happily ensconced in your new (detailed and protected) X3, then that's a dealer worth recommending.

Best wishes for a continued happy outcome!

Dehcho 03-19-2013 07:38 PM

Thank you for the well wishes.

I shall report the outcome......

Dehcho 03-19-2013 09:11 PM

Does anyone have any input on the Msport? Packages, etc???

Dehcho 03-19-2013 09:21 PM

lbjgh 03-20-2013 04:29 AM

The msport is primarily an appearance package as most on the mechanical bits are available on non msport models (at least in the USA).

The exception being performance control and the sport transmission. The latter may also be available on packages in the US.

In Canada I was required to opt for the msport to get the seats, paddles, anthracite headliner, and sport trans.

Edit: I just noticed you are north of the border... Ya need the msport for the fun bits. ;)

Dehcho 03-29-2013 04:24 AM

Ok, here is the outcome..

Our dealer gave us a full refund on our 12 a 35i and we went ahead and bought a 2013 M Sport..should be here in a few weeks..

Alpine white
Red brown Nevada
Premium
Executive
Technology
Apps
Lane departure warning
Heads Up
Through Loading

Can't wait!!!

I really can't say enough about how well we have been treated by our Dealer BMW Victoria....

Thanks for all of the input...

Congrats! That sucks about the 2012, but I'm glad they made it right.

noka 03-29-2013 07:49 AM
