Lib, Congrats on your Blue Water X3. I love the color. In the two years that I've owned mine, I have not seen another like it in my area.

I think it's pretty chintzy that they used cloth on the side of the back seats.

If they changed the pads on the 2014's, they still use the old ones for replacements on 2011's. I had rear brakes done a few weeks ago and the new ones are just as bad as the originals.

UncleJ, You try your hardest to steer people away from the second generation X3. Have you actually taken one on an extended drive?

There are multiple ways to change radio stations on the X3, but my favorite when I know the exact station that I want is to use the voice command. Simple as saying 'FM 91.3'.

Have you tried deflating the side bolsters on the sport seats? Don't know if that will make a difference or not to your wife.

Just had it replaced. They tried disenfecting it but the smell was still there. Just wondered if this was more common than they thought.

I'm very satisfied with the air conditioner in my car. I never run at max for more than a few minutes and then set it to the lowest speed. My car cooled quickly today even though it was 100 degrees.

Of course, I'm not comparing it with a car or the smaller X3, but as a larger SUV, I was very satisfied with the handling. I can't say the same for the 2011 Explorer that I test drove.

I found out when my American made 2003 Ford Explorer alternator died, the transmission was locked along with the power windows and doors, so probably true for the X3 as well.

I was referring to the badges on the steering wheel and door sills. No biggie, just not my cup of tea. It wouldn't have stopped me from ordering the M Sport package.
