High teens in the winter (Oct to Mar) when they switch over to crapoline to very low 20's in the summer. City or highway, does not matter. Have never been pleased w/ the mileage on this POS. Wife...

I've had 3 of 4 replaced on ours at various times since January of 2103. I've never worried about the differing tread depths. Some on here will say it matters, I doubt it does. Follow the money. ...

So again I'll go back to my statement about BMW knowing this, and, designing for it. If not, they're really going to have some warranty issues, at least in the first 50K anyway.

I doubt 0.080" is going to matter one bit. If it does, then there are other issues BMW has failed to consider.

One tire (LR) is new and the other (RR) is near the wear indicator. I'd have to go...

As of last month, I was able to get another new Pirelli RFT out of the dealer at no additional cost due to a nail in the tread. So far this X3 has three new tires. I noticed last weekend that the...

Yes, nothing changed after the accident.

Someone mentioned what fuel is best to run. We use the Shell 93 octane and see no improvement in mileage.

bass,

I don't disagree. The two totaled 5 series, and, our X3 which should have been totaled from an accident in January, don't make for low insurance rates. You're correct, those could have...

Looking back, we would have gone w/ the X5 as well, or, just gone back into 5 series sedans.

Coming out of two 535i's, the X3 seemed like a huge downgrade. Something we initially were OK with. ...

Just picked up our X3 from the dealer's body shop. Final bill came to $25215. Spent over 6 weeks in the shop. Have not had a chance to drive it or inspect it in detail but will do tomorrow.

Historically, over the last 3 BMWs, the best I've been able to do it 7% - 8% off MSRP. Anymore, I don't even research because it's not worth the time spent to save a couple nickels.
