I was talking about both- you can program the FOB on the X3 to close the tailgate. The foot thing comes on the 3series wagon and I wish it came on the X3.

Be aware though that some of the "Credits" BMW financing offers only applies if you use their financing, and if you go outside of BMWNA Financing, you don't qualify for those credits.

Nice 1st post- my guess is you wanted to stir up some commotion with it. Consistent or not, you should never assume anything. Anyone who's willing to buy a car without test driving it first should...

I used to have an e46 330Ci that I would autocross. I currently have an e90 325i and we just bought my wife a 2014 x3 35 with Premium, Tech, Drivers Assist, but no MSport. I absolutely love this...

Took the new X3 to the dealer to pick up the new plates this morning, and while I was there I figured I would also pick up an oil filter for it and my '06 325i. I didn't realize it, but they both...

Nice write-up! I used to change all the oil on my e46, but the wife always took her e90 in to have it done. Now that I'm driving the e90 I do it myself, but the 2014 X3 we got for the wife a couple...

Not exactly true- if you configure the 28i to match the base 35i package, there's only a $2700 difference, and you get different wheels. The 35i base is about $5k more than the base 28i, but you get...
