2004 - 2006 Seem to be simpler vehicles (no electric water pump). I might get shunned for this, however maintenance seems to be easier on the 2004 - 2006's.

With your cruise set at 60 what rpm's do X3's run at? Mine seems to stay around 2100 in 5th gear. Could it be something with the overdrive?

The 2007 to 2010 X3's were redesigned I take it? The thermostats pictured above resembles the thermostat that went to my X5 and it can be a costly fix vs what I've seen on the 2004-2006 X3's.

Coolant?

With the coolant light on I was curious on what type of coolant to use? I should have left over coolant from a 2007 BMW X5. Would the 2004 X3 use the same coolant as the X5?
