I had the same thing happen with mine and it happened again at 25K miles. They manually checked it both times and reset it. I don't know why it doesn't seem to be accurate.

My one set of clubs has to fit diagonally so I can't imagine getting 4 sets in there...they would have to stack all 4 on top of each other.

You got a brand new car because the tach didn't work? That's impressive.

My 2 cents would be that this X3 is the best vehicle I have ever owned (my 4th BMW). I can't believe I get 23mpg with 300HP in an SUV and I have a lead foot. I would also add that while I hated the...

I hated the run flats on my 335 and did switch them out. But honestly, I have no problem with them on the X3. They seem to be quiet and with a less sporty suspension than the 335 they don't punish...

+1. I was going to pay cash for my X3, but I got 2.39% for 60 months from Bellco Credit Union. There is no point in paying it off at those super low rates. I'd rather invest it elsewhere.

Just don't put it on. It is not a moving violation and like a $15 fine. I have been pulled over before in my 335 without it and the cop doesn't even bother checking.

Same for me. I drove off the lot and the TPMS went off. It turned out 3 of them were at 42 PSI and one was at 28 PSI.

Based solely on the quoted statement above, it would be impossible for me to recommend that you buy any BMW...simply based on the cost of repairs vs. other cars.

I am trading mine in the next week as soon as my new car arrives. The deal is already made so I can't sell it to you, but mine is loaded with 55K miles. It will be at Gebhardt BMW in Boulder.
