thumb drives

I bought 4 32 gig thumb drives and loaded each of the segments on a separate drive to save time. I needed the storage anyway. The segments are more than 16 gig so you'll need a 32 anyway.

Is there a CARFAX history on this? Where/when was the car first delivered? Points of service and maintenance? Was it truly a one-owner vehicle?

Just upgraded my 2013 X3

From the ordering and payment process (through PayPal) and the download and install, I couldn't be happier!

The longest part of this journey was actually zipping the files onto 4 32 gig thumb...

Since I was one of the contributors to the thread from 2009-2010, I should point out that my reception never improved and I never found a solution to the drop outs. If your car is under factory...

I'm not sure if you've pulled the trigger on this from dealer #2 by now, but an old negotiating tactic here, especially if #1 is your selling dealer. I dislike playing games but always temper my...

I'm sure BMW USA has a suggested price but it's up to the F&I manager to decide how much to offer you. Your dealer is way above what I paid and way above what was quoted to me for extended...

It was $3500+ PA state tax for the 6 year/100k plan which will take me to October 2018. I had a 2008 CPO X3 and the warranty more than paid for itself between 95k and 100k. Additionally, the dealer...

2015 X3 / iPhone Navigation Bluetooth Issue

Prior to buying a 2008 X3, I owned several Honda Accords that all went well past 150k miles trouble free. The '08 was solid but had a couple nagging quality issues- nothing major but the kind of...
