New BMW X3 Owner
 
Hi..

I got my new 2014 BMW X3 28i 2 weeks ago.. So far it has been very good. We love the car.

It has Driver assistance package, Lighting Package, Navigation, Panaromic moonroof, Heated seats.

I have few questions..

1. The day I got the car, when I switched on it says "Service Due in 10000 miles". After around 200 miles, it said "Service Due in 9000 miles". But now, when it is at 600 miles, it says "Service due in 8000 miles". I wonder if it is something to be concerned of or notified to dealer?

2. Can I dynamically change from eco-pro mode to Comfort to sports mode? I mean do I have to stop the car to change the mode or can I do it while I am driving?

3. Does navigation displays the direction list, like in google maps or GPS?

Thanks,
Ashwin K

ashwinkhai, congrats on the new X3.

The service due indicator is condition base, as you drive in different condition, the mileage due will change.

Drive mode can be change on the fly, no need to stop.

To get the direction list, just push voice command and say route information.

Not from email, but from Google map.

Sending destinations from Google Maps has been a problem lately. It appears to only work when you use the Chrome browser, which is another Google product. More reliable, at least for now, is sending a destination from the My BMW Remote app.

I had issues last week with the "send to Car' feature from google maps but it worked again yesterday. I was using IE10.

I just tried in Google map. It's only sending destination... Am I doing anything wrong?

Hi ashwinkhai. Congrats. But check if your new car is affected by the recent issue with N20/N26 engine. You can refer to the thread using the following link:

One more quick question.. I got All weather floor mats. But not the Trunk All weather mat. I can't seem to find one. Do you have any idea where I can buy online or in shop in the US?

Thanks,

That link is for "OEM BMW F25 X3 Protective Loading Edge Mat ". I was looking for the All Weather trunk liner (trunk mat).

Thanks,

The weathertech mats are nice but it cost 30% more than the BMW OEM mats and the quality is about the same.

Does OEM or Weathertech Cargo mat allow the Sliding Cargo Hooks to be adjusted freely or do they have to stay and the 4 corners.

Liverman 10-16-2013 03:23 PM

if you slice holes in the mat you can put the cargo eyes wherever you want them on the two rails.

stated another way - you cannot use the cargo eyes with any cargo mat that I know of since the mat covers the rail,s that the eyes slide into.

Hi,

I know, I asked this question in my first post in this thread. This is regarding Condition Based Service. It is only at 2900 miles and now it is showing Service due in 4800 Miles..

I wonder if it is my driving style or anything else. I thought BMW service is usually every 10,000 miles or so.

Thanks,
Ashwin Kollambalath
