I love the Carbon Black. I think it is one of the most beautiful production color on any car from any automaker today. I either wash or (more often) pay someone to wash my car every one or 2 weeks...

If its CPO that means you get an excellent warranty. If it only has 10k miles the CPO goes through 100k and you actually have some factory warranty left. If the 2011 is really 10,000 less, I would...

If you use Pandora or MOG, then apps is worth it for the iDrive interface. Those are the cool features of BMW apps, not Facebook and twitter. There are also lots of future potential with apps,...

Sorry for the sarcasm. It was a moment of weakness. I think 120-150 is reasonable from a dealer. Sometimes they offer coupons. If you add in the fact, that the BMW oil change includes some other...

You could always take it to Jiffy Lube. That would be pretty cheap.

Is this a way of distinguishing the cars or is the chrome grill considered an upgrade? I got a 35i and would have preferred the black grill.

Just curious. If the phone is plugged in, what's the advantage of using Bluetooth? I imagine it would drain the battery quicker and the connection wouldn't be as good.

I think it's only a European thing, or at least a non US thing. I would overlook if they offered a diesel engine.

If it is not worth it to you, then by all means do not get it. I doubt you will realize significant savings on a Q5 and the Tiguan is not in the same class. Good luck with your shopping.

I have to disagree. The nature of inventory management is such that you should be able to negotiate a better deal for a car already on the lot. The dealer has to pay interest for every day a car sits...

So are you telling me the battery does not charge at all while idling. This guys problem seemed to be a loose wire. If that is indeed the case, it is beyond stupid.

I think it uses fluid at a higher rate than other cars I've driven. Maybe due to the headlight washers?

He might be basing it on the performance in the 3 series. Might not be exactly the same as in the X3, but it's probably close.

If you lock the x3, the alarm will go off if someone is in the car. It's motion sensor I think. I learned the hard way when I left my dogs in the car.

I stand corrected. I didn't think you needed Nav, but when I tried to configure it on the BMW site, it requires BMW assist and the Navigation system. Sorry

Pandora Connectivity is included in BMW apps. It does not require the Tech Package.
The Pandora connectivity is worth the price of BMW apps alone. I also use MOG quite a bit.
