DSB X3 35i via PCD last week

Thanks to all on this board for your input and advice - it made our decisions much easier and the overall process much smoother.

Yikes! 40!? Hope the replaced part is the permanent fix (for your sake) and that they are implementing this on the production line immediately (for my sake).

High marks for Kash's on-the-money review!

I feel the same about my 2008 E93 - the N54 just wants to pull no matter what; I especially love the way it accelerates on inclines like they were flat -...

Thanks for the reply. Kind of what I expected (although I had hoped otherwise) - I guess if you allowed free substitution, you would need a large fleet of M3s.

I heard on another thread that for X3 PCD the limited availability of that model resulted in the X5 use for the off road portions, and the 3 series use for the wet skid pad. Could I request an E89...
