I have what sounds to be a similar ("bluefish tinge") problem on my shadowline trim. I think it came from a lousy carwash's "wax." I had some luck improving the shadowline by carefully buffing...

I think it is how the dealer monitors the battery level for cars on the lot.

Congrats on the new car!

I have had rattles with my 2013 X3. Constant. Bad enough that the dealer had to do welding work on the body. And still there are rattles. As I read this post, I have to wonder why I should have...

Pros and Cons of M Sport

I think offhand that realoem.com doesn't agree? I suppose two authorized service shops would charge me $3K to make my suspension "stock," but I hope not. I do see the majority of posts say there is...

Pros and Cons of M Sport

I had it physically confirmed both by my surprise after a weekend demo in an standard suspension and my dealer that my m-sport has a stiffer ride. Was a bummer when sales told me the suspensions are...

Pros and Cons of M Sport

Get a professional opinion re suspension differences between stock and m-sport. Have service put them both on lifts if you can't tell from the side. Also check bmw parts sites.

For winter, I'll put different tires on the existing wheels. Those tires could be the original Goodyear RFTs (I kept them), but that's unlikely. I'll look into 3-Season Michelin or winter-season...

Any concerns for my tires having a load rating of 98 instead of 102? The Michelin MXM4s are 98, but 102 is recommended. A load rating of 1,653lbs vs. 1,874lbs (per tire) / 6,612lbs vs. 7,496lbs ...

Tire recommendations (non-RFTs)?

There's a lot of information and opinions out there regarding tires. Not a lot specific to the F25 X3 probably because most folks haven't had to replace their tires. ...

In the online BMW config tool, the M-Sport does not have the "Sport Suspension." However, it has a stiffer suspension due to different struts/shocks. At least mine does, but it's only a 2013. ...

M-sport has a choppier and rougher ride due to sports suspension. Perhaps DHP compensates. Please test drive first! Black plastic on bumpers makes sense, and lots of SUVs have it. Steering wheel...

The Concpet X4 Released
