Fluid

If that is the case, they should have done it twice before now. They did not, nor did they even bring it up.

Check NADA as well as KBB, they should be very much alike. How long it has been in use is all built into the model year info. You can price one and change the miles to see what effect that has.

No, our X3 has the 245/50R18, H speed rating. All that is the same as the old Goodyears I replaced. I could not get the run flat version in this size.

It worked!! Thank you very much. Interesting though, my hard copy manual does not have that info in it. It does for the sunroof, but not the side windows. The manual I downloaded, does have it.
