We've had the Oyster for 3+ years now and it still looks new. Only occasional cleaning with Griot's leather care products. The white may show dirt earlier but don't know why it wouldn't clean up just...

And don't forget the rear outlet setting too, else you will be pumping warmer air into the backseat.

We're at 6500 ft here in Colorado and, by mistake, I once filled with regular (87 octane). No perceptible effect, no pinging or any other problems. Perhaps down on power but the engine management...

Sounds like alignment prices are all over the place. Our Denver dealer (Schomp) charged $137 and they did a good job. Not sure why some are pushing $300 and others are near $100.

Warning Distance

Well, depends on where you live. Out here in the wilds of Colorado, the nearest fuel might be more than 100 km away.

One of the few things I don't like in the X3 is the horn controls. It's my wife's car and I don't drive it much but I always have to look down to find the horn location, not a good thing if you're...

Factory Shades

Yes, they do a fine job of keeping the sun off while still providing some outward visibility. And, they are invisible when not in use.

Respectively disagree on the "horrible look" comments. We have the factory curtains/shades and I think they look fine. And, unlike heavier tinting, they can be used when needed and not used when not...

Our 2011 with the N55 engine has 38K miles on it with no sign of the problem. I think that the notice we received is typical. The manufacturer acknowledges the problem per NHTSA safety regs and then...

Yeah, I noticed that restriction too. I'd really like to have both. Hopefully this is something that BMW will remedy soon.

US-Spec X3 Export to Europe

Unless you live in Europe and take delivery of a Euro-spec X3 there. I believe something like 70% of the vehicles produced at Spartanburg (X3, X4, X5, and X6) are exported and Spartanburg is the ONLY...

Yeah, I think that you can take delivery of a U.S. X3 in Europe but they are all built here in Spartanburg, SC. So, your car is placed in a rail container, moved to the "Inland Port" at Greer, then...

Tire Rack and OEM Tires

No, I'm saying that Tire Rack offers both OEM and non-OEM tires and they are pretty clear about it. With other vendors, it's not always so clear.
