Look at pages 43-46 of the '11 owner's manual, where it talks about pinch protection, how to circumvent it, and how to initialize both the windows and the sunroof.

The Fuse Diagram should be located near the rear fuse block. Open the panel cover just inside the hatch in the right rear, and look behind the removable insulation.

The 2011 35i with Xenons is the only F25 X3 that I know of which came with rear DRLs by default. It should be configurable by coding, which may be in your category of "factory tools".

I'm driving a '17 28i loaner this weekend, and agree about the low beams. The high beams are adequate around town, but I prefer the Xenons on my 35i as high beam "deer spotters" on country roads.

Lock is one chirp, unlock is two chirps, keyfob in car is three chirps. If you're within range, which isn't much more than 20 feet, hitting the unlock button will cause a double chirp.

The timing chain issue is a 28i issue, not a 35i. The things to keep an eye on on a 35i are seepage from the gasket below the oil filter, and the water pump and thermostat.
