It's for aerodynamics supposedly. Though the passenger side wiper is not completely tucked in.

At least my Audi has a menu setting to raise the wipers, not a trick sequence to operate like the BMW

Not related to your problem, but a while back I managed to stall a 2011 X3 with the N52 (6 cylinder.. and this was before start/stop was available in North America). I was just on a test drive from...

It sounds like a stall to me. If the car loses electrical, the transmission locks into P.

I would have preferred a normal sized sunroof rather than a panoramic one but I guess it only came one way.

My dad has the same year X3 as yours and I know exactly what you mean. His transmission is quite a bit lazy too, mine isn't quite as bad.

The x3 has worse aerodynamics than a sedan, it does carry roughly 400 lbs more weight than the 3 series. The turbo doesn't help as it incentivizes a heavy foot because of all that torque. Back of...

LCI vs preLCI?

Have there been any F25 owners that have moved up to the LCI version?

My 2013 is in the shop and I'm in a rental 2015 for the next week and a half.

It's interesting to see the changes in the...

If the passenger side comes in more then I'd consider that a good thing.. ie less chance of error due to parking misjudgment.

I think what you're referring to is the direct injection noise. That's a refinement issue with the BMW 2.0's. I have it on my 2013 too. Audi had this corrected by the time the B8 A4 came around.....

Not really useful in this conversation, but I remember ten years or so ago the premium they charged for Xenons (not even projectors yet) was more ridiculous. Same $2k charge in 2000-era dollars.

51,000 km on our 2011 n52. No concerns so far. The only annoyance is the onboard computer keeps asking for brake pad replacement every 30,000 km
