I typically drive a lot and find the on-board traffic and Goggle Search in the phone app invaluable. The weather, I don't get it - it seems you have to zoom way out just to get little weather icons....

I may add the film to my 2015. I was very surprised how pitted my 2013 was when I turned it in. I have a 1999 VW that has may more miles and far fewer pits along the rim of the hood.

I had the Top View cameras on my last X3. If I used the feature 5 times, I'm probably exaggerating. Its novel, but not really of much value IMHO.

Try Capital Cities BMW, in Glenmont (just outside Albany). I purchase my BMWs and VWs through them. They're great folks to work with and I feel have been very fair and willing to go the extra mile.

I'd bring it back to the dealer. That does not sound right. Our 2015s are about the same age and mine does not make that noise.

Yes, I can lock it and then go back in. But while I do that my neighbor sips coffee and laughs as he remotely starts his Jeep.

I had a 2013 X3 and if you didn't know better you'd swear it was a diesel when it was cold. My 2015 is much better but still louder than I feel a luxury vehicle should be.
