B-Line is awesome!

Thanks again for the referral. Just got the X3 back from B-Line and it's as good as new. Big thumbs up and I can't recommend these folks highly enough.

When I lived in Houston, Advantage was the good one. But even they had their issues.

Is it a good time to mention all the dealers are under the same conglomerate umbrella?

Wild - it doesn't look like you can on the 2014's without the M Sport, like you mentioned.

I did on my 2013, however.

Completely agree with you - I wasn't addressing your issues. Wind noise is a symptom of build quality issues with your X3. I wish you the very best in getting them resolved.

The passkey is whatever you choose - when it prompts you in iDrive for the code, enter any 4 digits. Then when your phone prompts you, enter those same 4 digits. Ideally you just enter 0000.

This has been an issue for years, dare I say decades, with BMW. On one hand they are innovators and can change alot, and on the other hand suffer from age old issues without addressing them. :dunno:

Agreed. One of the updates to the X3 from the first generation I liked was that stowage drawer. Ah well, no big deal. I will say I like the lane departure/collision detection features.
