Remember that when my system lost 0.5l it was a 50/50 mix, so when I added 0.5l of water the mix is now 47.5/52.5. Even at 40/60 I'm good to -25C. I read somewhere that if you use a 25/75...

Same happened to me with about 6,000 miles. I put in a fresh bottle of Costco water and it's fine. Remember, the freezing temperature of a water / coolant mix is much lower than straight coolant...

Now that we have HUD on both cars, I rent cars when I travel and wonder how I ever kept my eyes on the road. I didn't think I'd use it much but have found it to be one of the best tech features I've...

We had the black (all black) grills installed prior to delivery and love them. We opted for the standard ones with the white, but I wanted the black on black. I think it was about $120 total (in...

I agree, I'd rather have the HUD from our 335 in the X3 (sleep limit signs, phone, radio, etc., and it's white in the daytime). And here's a useless but interesting thing I saw yesterday - I was...

Could you take a few pictures of the nav? I'm curious about the upgrade I've heard the '14's have.

For what it's worth, I really like the top view - easy to see curbs and clearances. And when my daughter does the parallel parking part of her driver's test she'll nail it.

The premium in my X3 (and in the 335) are just ok, but still a good bit better than the basic one. Bass is thin, and my biggest gripe is that even though the brochures say it will play 5.1 DVDs,...

I had the same issue with the shade when I drove it - only blocks about 50% of the light and offers no insulation (cold downdraft in winter) or sound damping when closed. X3's is perfect and padded.

My wife and I went through the same exercise here yesterday - Q5 vs. X3. This will be a replacement for our MDX coming off lease. We're a little biased toward the X3, I have to admit, since we...

I've had a 528, driven the new 5's and just got a 335. Best summary is that you ride IN the 5 and ON the 3. With the 3 you don't notice the bulk of the dash and hood when you are driving - in the 5...

That's odd, because my M Sport order included the ZCW package with the heated M Sport steering wheel (248). I pick it up in a few days so we'll see if they were lying.

I get that. That's why I said with winter tires. The driven wheels get you the 'go' and the tires get you the 'stop'.
