I ditched the Goodyear LS2's when they were down to 3/32 with only 15,000 miles on them. Went with Continental Extreme DWS and love them compared to the run flats.

2015's are out now. You can expect to get $7,000 to $9,000 off MSRP on a 2014. You can't go wrong either way.

Agree. Why would you trade a 2011 for a 2014? Makes no sense. I would sell your X3 outright and get better than $28K for it. Sounds low unless its a bare bones 28i you are getting rid of.

Yep, that's a rodent. Check under your engine cover too. My neighbor had a mouse rip up the insulation then built a nest under the engine cover on her X3. BMW will not cover that under warranty.

The EPA hold has been lifted and X3's have been released to the carriers. I bet your X3 will be there sooner than your dealer thinks. Did you call BMW's 800# and ask them?

The website is usually never accurate. If you call the BMW 800#, they can tell you exactly what build stage your X3 is on (i.e. paint shop, assembly line, etc).

He PAID $41,000 for it. I wouldn't want it without Xenons, but if he can live with it that's his choice. Nine grand off sticker is a good deal. That is all I was commenting on.
