Anyone who decided NOT to take PCD?

One other advantage is that you can take a driving vacation and only have to drive one way. We spent a week driving home to Houston, stopping one or 2 nights in Asheville, Nashville, Little Rock,...

Back up camera

What I see is a grey check mark on the rear view camera under the driver assist package with that package unchecked. That just means you get that if you get that package as opposed to the rear view...

Cradle vs Console USB Port?

I think BMW needs to rethink the cradle business. If it takes a year to develop a cradle for a new iPhone, and a new one comes out every year, I would ask "why bother". I can't see buying one for...

2014 Comfort Access

I have a 2013 X3 with comfort access and the rear hatch has 2 buttons - close and close/lock. You do have to have the fob in your pocket for it to lock.

X3 owners: what color is your ride?

Blue water with oyster. It is my wife's, and her color choice, but I think it is really nice. I have only seen one or two in Blue Water, and when I was on the factory tour I only saw one.

Question about PCD

My wife didn't want to do the ABS test so she got out and I did twice as many. They don't care if you do less, they just don't want extra guests taking turns at the wheel and slowing things down....

Not impressed with AC

The other thing to look at is the fan setting. Unlike my prior non-BMWs with auto a/c, which adjusted fan speed over the full range and went to recirc (max) when needed, my 2013 X3 only adjusts the...

The storage package was part of the Premium Package in 2013. It is now standard so don't worry about it. It includes some storage netting, tie down lugs, etc.
