The same thing happened to me a few years ago. I think the problem then was that the liftgate button somehow got stuck. You mention that it's not stuck, but have you tried lifting the plastic...

Tire Size Question

Technically no problem. You will get 5.5 mm lower ground clearance, and about 1,5% error on your speedometer, values according to tirecalc.

Both rear springs broke on my 2007 model. If I had known that Lesjofors made springs, I would have chosen those instead of OEM. IMO a reputable company with good products.

Remember that the X3 had an option for 19" staggered wheels. 235/45-19 front and 255/40-19 rear. That's a 1% difference in diameter, or 3.75mm difference in sidewall height. Now if that's acceptable,...

Well, the button is named just "m", and lives between the previous and next arrows on the player.

On my 2007 i filled close to a liter with new oil, before it...

I haven't driven the X3 diesel myself, but as a passenger in both E83 2.0d and F25 2.0d, I have been disappointed. It's noisy, and IMHO has too much low frequency vibrations that resonates with the...

Those numbers are with an average speed of about...
