Part arrived

OK, the steering rack arrived at the dealership this afternoon. I was told if all goes well I should have my car back tomorrow. :) Hopefully this corrects the problem.

Update

I was just informed that the part was shipped out yesterday and the dealership should have in 5 to 7 days. I am hopeful that they have my car ready by the time I have to leave on the 24th. ...

This is why

The dealer where my x3 is at this time did give me a loaner (2014 328i xdrive). This is not why I am saying there is a lack of customer focus. I am 500 miles from home and I was informed by a BMW...

Customer Service?????

It is not only the poor supply chain management but their lack of customer service that is evident. There is no reason I should still be waiting for an answer from them regarding my options. 1....

Steering Malfunction

My 2013 X3 developed a problem with the steering. While I realize that any car can have problems, my criticism is their poor supply chain management. While travelling (500 miles from home) I lost...

Oil Sensor accuracy????

Two months ago, while driving, a warning flashed that I should add a quart of oil ASAP. I had the oil changed only 10 weeks prior, so I doubted that it would need oil already. I pulled over and...

Great Idea

The tubing sounds like a great idea. Better than the swimming noodles that I used with my other car.

Where did you get the extra hooks?

For the front I was planning on going under the hood on the sides with a strap so as to avoid rubbing on the body. The last SUV I had showed where the rope rubbed. Where did you get the extra...

Thanks for the reply

I actually overlooked the obvious. That may well be the solution that will work for me. I guess I can secure both kayaks to the tow hook. Too bad they only supply one hook.
