I just had my 100K service on my 2006 X3.

My indy mechanic told me that with proper maintenance, the engine should easily go to 200K and beyond.

I went thru that drill 2 years ago. Replaced the CCVV, intake boot and cleaned my MAF sensor.

Haven't thrown a code since. Something tells me you're taking in air somewhere.

Hi Guys

Highlands Ranch Imports on County Line road is simply the best. Been taking my 2006 X3 there for years. Great service, fair and honest.
