I have this on my 2011 X3. Thinking it was this, I haven't had it checked out. Is this not supposed to crop up for 2008+ model years?

I think my X3 has the N52 inline 6 as well(?) -

X5 Holiday Credit / other rebates

Guys
Friend of mine is looking at X3 / X5, possibly before Jan 2.

1. Are there any current rebate offers for either?

LUFTHANSA fares to BER

Lufthansa is offering fares to BER for $660, with flights routed through FRA but fares into FRA are $850. I have to think it has to do with airport taxes or something else like that but curious if I...

Air Fares to MUC

Just happened to check air fares to Munich and they seem almost prohibitive if you are looking to do an ED with family, even as late as Sep/Oct. Thought?

Clearly slightly off-topic but some of the reviews say the 328 handles better than the 335 because of the smaller engine. Assuming that's true, is the 335 a better buy if you're looking for a...

Haven't done an ED but your case seems ideal to combine ED and PCD. I would think some of the east coast dealers would work perfectly fine. A roadtrip from SC to DC is easily do-able.
