Just a question - I purchased the NEXT maps and got a receipt emailed to me, but I don't know how to get the software. What are you supposed to do after your payment goes through?

Why don't you get the software update that remembers the ASS setting? That way you don't have to disable it (unless you switch to economy mode).

I'll probably mention it when I take it in. It doesn't last for a second - what I hear is that the blower cuts out momentarily and then comes back. The radio I've attributed to Sirius and the fact...

AC and Radio Cut-out

Mine ('14 x3-35i) does the same thing. Not radio and ac at the same time, but both will occasionally cut out.

X3 Wood Trim

I was surprised that there wasn't wood trim throughout, but the fineline wave is dark enough that I don't normally notice it.

More than I realized. It's great for parallel parking and maneuvering into tight spaces when going forward. I'm so glad I decided to spring for it. :thumbup:

2014 X3 Package Dilemma

Make sure you've set brightness properly. It's fine here even in direct bright sunlight. No issues at all with visibility.

I agree wholeheartedly with this. At speed, it's nice and tight. That's what initially concerned me since my first X3 test drive was on city streets at low speeds, where the steering is loose.

X3 owners: what color is your ride?

Space gray / black. Perhaps a bit boring, but very elegant and hides dirt well :)

You can also get compass functionality (as well as lat/long/alt which is valuable as well) in split-screen on your display.

X3 Order question

I love the top view. It's great for street parking and garage parking. It helps ensure I don't ding the car or get curb rash. $320 was a small price to pay.

Don't forget to add roof rails if you want them and don't have M-sport.

Make sure you specify you want roof rails, if you want them. They're not standard, and the $250 option for satin aluminum rails (on the non-M package) is not an "upgrade" - those are the base rails....
