I'm not a huge fan of Auto Hold as the sensation I get is that the engine will rev a fraction of a second before the brakes let go.. so that's a bit of a drag in my view (ie., wasting gas)

Wow, I didn't realize somebody actually produced an aftermarket for the F25.

^^ that's fair. I think I'm preferring the power delivery of the 6 cylinder more than a 4 cylinder. I do agree that the 4 cylinder is ultimately quicker though.

The N20 does not have much torque down low unless it's in sport mode, and I've always had this feeling that fuel economy suffers more on aggressive driving on the 2.0T vs the old 3.0.

I think I'd be interested in putting rear sways if there ever was an upgrade available. Bilstein has off road shocks which would be counter to what we would want.

I'm not sure who sells coilovers for the F25, but I did put Eibach springs on my X3. It came out to just slightly under 1" (it's either 25mm or 30mm.. i forget). But its basically barely noticeable...

It's for aerodynamics supposedly. Though the passenger side wiper is not completely tucked in.

At least my Audi has a menu setting to raise the wipers, not a trick sequence to operate like the BMW

It sounds like a stall to me. If the car loses electrical, the transmission locks into P.

Unlike LEDs that apparently are on all four "eyes", the Xenons are only on the outboard projectors. The inboard ones are dummies (they're empty).

I would have preferred a normal sized sunroof rather than a panoramic one but I guess it only came one way.

My dad has the same year X3 as yours and I know exactly what you mean. His transmission is quite a bit lazy too, mine isn't quite as bad.

The x3 has worse aerodynamics than a sedan, it does carry roughly 400 lbs more weight than the 3 series. The turbo doesn't help as it incentivizes a heavy foot because of all that torque. Back of...

LCI vs preLCI?

Have there been any F25 owners that have moved up to the LCI version?

My 2013 is in the shop and I'm in a rental 2015 for the next week and a half.

It's interesting to see the changes in the...

If the passenger side comes in more then I'd consider that a good thing.. ie less chance of error due to parking misjudgment.

I think what you're referring to is the direct injection noise. That's a refinement issue with the BMW 2.0's. I have it on my 2013 too. Audi had this corrected by the time the B8 A4 came around.....
