My previous BMW cars and my current M5 all followed Inspection 1 and 2 schedules for service. I knew what was going to be done and the cost. For the first time after warranty, my 2013 X3 is due for...

I reached 50k miles today, a couple weeks less than 3 years. Brake service light will probably come on tomorrow. I decided against the extended warranties.

I'm not worried about the extra power on the X3 platform. Dinan has been making tuning kits for BMW's for years. The BMW dealer installs the Dinan tune. The factory warranty remains in effect...

60 hp and 94 ft/lbs of torque for about $2k. Turbos provide an opportunity for large improvement for not a lot of money (relatively). Also maintains warranty with Dinan.

I was under warranty at the time.
