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.

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. ...

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.
