It may be sensible to change all the fluids and do the the serpentine belt service. Also, at this mileage, the pump failure is common. Good luck with the car.

I've a 330xi with a 6MT, and I agree with Zooks. I see the x-drive/MT combo mostly among the BMW owners who like driving on snow - they favor the x-drive/MT for its handling.
