My X3 does not have all of those features. However I don't have to disable anything. The car is probably smart enough to disable selected features once the trailer is plugged into the harness. I...

I have a 5 x 8 trailer I've pulled many times with my 2011 X3. Not much to it really. Allow for longer stopping distance. If they programmed it correctly you should be able to use the backup camera...

I use it the same way. Sometimes it's nice to have a cool breeze in your face when the heater is keeping your feet warm.

Agreed. Mine doesn't go completely flat or level, but it's now flatter than it was.

Do you have the maps set to traffic mode? The background is grey in that mode. On mine, in the normal mode, highlighted roads are the route to the destination I selected.

Thanks for the idea. I've leveled the seat as flat as it will go. Hopefully that will help. The next long trip will tell.

I'm tall and have sport seats, and the seat cushion kills my right hip. I've not found an adjustment to correct this.

The 2011 35. I've only driven the new 4 banger in a three series; it clattered worse than my TDI and wasn't nearly as smooth as the traditional BMW 6 cylenders. To be fair, it was pretty quick.

I'd take it back for repair. Your check engine light shouldn't be coming on. Guess I was lucky that the computer stored the info about which part had failed on my X3.

It takes me an hour to get to Costco. It's an hour to the closest BMW dealer for me. An hour drive is nothing to save a grand.

I hauled two by fours on top before. You do need the crossbars to support them and provide a place to tie them down. Not sure I would put a piece of plywood on top.

The i35 is a rocket compared to the 28. I own a 2011 28 (6 cylinder). It's a nice smooth driver and plenty of grunt. But the 35 is more of a blast to drive.
