Outta That!

Trading the 2008 for a low mileage station car 2006 and cash back last fall was the best thing I could have done. Love the way this car goes and stops in snow.

I'm in CT too (NH Co), and had extremely good support from my dealer, Inskip, in Warwick RI, when we went through the troubles that I cannot mention with the '08. They will do free pickup...

Uber Mechanic

Here's hoping the top mechanic sees it your way this time. I know what it's like to have the tranny problem, and I know that there are a lot of quiet deals happening.....I just can't say...

why

Maybe the 2006 will be not as refined as the 2008 in ride and power, but I like everything about the 2008 X3 except the AT. It is otherwise perfect for our needs, so I'm not bolting to...

2008 X3 6AT minus 2006 X3 5AT = $$$$$?

Hoping those of you who are better with deals than I will help me here, after which I'll report on what I learned in the process.

Essentially, because my BMW dealer, in particular the CA and SA,...

And Then Some

If the lost key was stolen, or lost in a place where the finder can connect the key with the car, then the car is at risk of being stolen. At that point a complete change of locks and keys is called...

Build Date

11/05/07. There are no viable SIB's to be installed, and they don't want to reinstall anything.

I have been in written contact with BMWUSA, and they say to work with the dealer. I'm willing to...

Wait, Please Wait

That's why my SA has asked, after he and the BMWUSA regional service representative drove my X3 and confirmed that it has the X3AT disease. He said that BMW is devoting serious engineering effort to...

Bmwna

I was just informed by the SA at my dealership that by coincidence the BMWNA field service rep will be there tomorrow, and they will test drive my X3. I cannot be there, unfortunately.

Delivered here.

Another thing that bugs me is (pasted from Owners Circle website):

Owners' Manuals for the 2008 X3 currently not available on-line.

How long does THAT take?

2008 X3

My X3 has a build date of 11/15/07, and the jury is still out as to whether the transmission is still adapting or is f*****d. 400 or so miles, but from 4 different drivers, all of whom report...

Start from your phone

I'm no expert, but I think if you try again to pair by starting from the cellphone's bluetooth options, you'll have another chance. You probably will need the Bluetooth id # to pair successfully. My...
