I have no problems with the drivers side. Their included retention mechanism is great on the drivers side. Why they didn't put it on the passenger side is beyond me and really makes me question...

Weathertech's are not overpriced. I love them. Have them in all 3 of my cars. That being said, the X3 passenger side has no retention provisions and in the X3 passenger it tends to migrate up the...

I had it in MAX setting and it still wasn't cooling. I don't think that was the issue. Thanks though.

I had a thermometer in the vents of another 2012 loaner they had and it put out the same temperature air at idle. Really idle (not moving) is the only problem.

Good catch, but I had already found that when I was searching. They were both on full cold and the car was in MAX AC. I was sitting in the parking lot waiting for my wife to come out on 2 occasions...

Air Conditioning Performance?

My 2012 X3 35i seems to have a weak AC, it was only 85 (though sunny) here yesterday and unless we were on the highway, the AC could barely keep up.

Is this common with other folks?

What is...

Start/Stop Impressions (on a 528i loaner)

I'll admit, I was very very critical of the decision to include start/stop in the BMW line.

I can confirm the programming 95% gets rid of this problem and greatly enhances overall drivability.

Our X3 has a distinct wind noise above 40-42 MPH. It sounds as though it is coming from the driver side door/window area. I suppose it could be the mirror. Not sure.

I do LOVE the X3. I don't...

In my opinion, yes they still need to do some work on the calibration.

I can only imagine that the poor souls who get Auto Start/Stop in the 2013 X3 will suffer even more... I can see offering...

I do know you can adjust it while she is speaking by adjusting the volume knob. There is probably another setting in the iDrive menu but off hand I can't recall.
