Yesterday when I opened my driver side door my tailgate went up. Hmmm, I thought, did I somehow hit the tailgate button? Nope, I didn't. Later on that day when I opened the door to exit, guess what,...

Why do you think about tuning hardware?

So, I am wondering why do people who purchased the X3 28i want to install a piece of tuning hardware? Is it because, like me, we wish we would have spent the additional $2000 and purchased the 35i?

No mention of coding is advised

You are probably aware of this but do not say anything about the coding.

BMW Assist

BMW Assist. This is an expensive service. Is it worth it? I guess it depends on how much time you are in your X3 so any answers are going to be subjective.

But, I am curious, do you subscribe to,...

I've looked at some of these upgrades but have shied away from doing anything because I am concerned any mods like this will void the vehicle's warranty. Does anyone know if this is true?

DO you use ECO Pro mode

We can beat this horse some more comparing the 28i and 35i but this thread doesn't concern that it is discussing ECO Pro Mode.

My experience with ECO Pro

Only did this once.

Drove my 2013 X3 28i in ECO mode for one tank of gas, (not a fun way to drive a 28i). Ended up with worse gas mileage than when driving in Comfort mode.

Like I said, I only...

As far a mileage goes my 28i...
