Warwick

BMW Inskip in Warwick, RI is hands down the best. Ask for Joanne Moniz. I approached every dealer in MA and tried NH and they were all higher. BMW Norwell was the worst by far. They told me the...

It's definitely not the tires. It is the engine. I should add that it's not even "cold" here in new england yet. It's been about 60 F when I've experienced this. At first my husband and I thought it...

Hi, I've noticed that my 2013 X3 28i shakes when the engine is cold. This is most noticeable around 40 mph. The first time this happened I turned around, drove home, and took the train to work. I've...

It's not easy to open the tailgate by accident. You have to hold down the button for a few seconds on the key. Or you have to push open the button inside the car which is really low by your feet. I...

I would agree that the mileage isn't a selling point. But, the new 2013 engine is so much better! I waited for it and am very happy I did. The throttle lag on the older vehicle was a no deal for me.

My 2013 has the black grill. I think I like it better than the chrome. The bugs don't show - ha. The online configuration still shows my vehicle with chrome grill.
