I take it that he didn't believe in gas savings from auto start stop. There's a chance that his car will end up in Russia or Nigeria. Did you know that a significant number of cars in Nigeria are...

Furby's and my car were probably built within a month of each other. My interval was about 16,100 miles, not 15,000 miles. Furby's might be 20,000 miles because he drives the car carefully and only...

Has the dealer changed my CBS oil interval? I have a 2013 320i. The original interval was approximately 15,000 miles or 2 years. For 2014, BMW changed it to about 10,000 miles for 2014 and later...

I only glanced at the invoice for a second, but I think I saw $176 billed to BMW for an oil service, brake fluid change, and wipers. If that is the case, $176 worth of work for over $1000 is not...

Fortunately, I can report that the 2015 X1, which seems to me to be the replacement to the E83 X3, does have a smoother automatic transmission. I just drove a X1.

A little off topic, but I recently drove a 2015 X1 (automatic). The ASS is significantly smoother when it restarts compared to my 2013 320i manual. My car is not rough but rougher than the X1.

Leaving it at the Welt might be slower because you can do things faster than any company. You could just drive it there almost as fast as it would take for them to drive it to the Welt garage.

How close to the service interval will the dealer perform free maintenance?
