I'm not sure if you've pulled the trigger on this from dealer #2 by now, but an old negotiating tactic here, especially if #1 is your selling dealer. I dislike playing games but always temper my...

I'm sure BMW USA has a suggested price but it's up to the F&I manager to decide how much to offer you. Your dealer is way above what I paid and way above what was quoted to me for extended...

It was $3500+ PA state tax for the 6 year/100k plan which will take me to October 2018. I had a 2008 CPO X3 and the warranty more than paid for itself between 95k and 100k. Additionally, the dealer...

As my 2013 X3 was about to hit 50K miles I looked at a couple options, all of which were expensive. The BMW Platinum Extended warranty seemed to cover more parts than some of the others I looked at,...

I had a similar problem with my 2013 X3 with 49,400 miles. If the car sat for more than a day, it would create a smoke cloud, though I would describe it as blue-gray rather than black. I shot a...

2015 X3 / iPhone Navigation Bluetooth Issue

I have a 2013 X3 with the Technology package but usually run both WAZE on my iPhone and the built in NAV system. My wife calls it dueling GPS.

IF I'm using WAZE and listening to the car's built...

Agreed. They won't let us remote start our cars, but at least they've restored one of the most useful functions in the app.

The BMW Remote App is FIXED!

While in map mode, give the voice command "options". Among the map display options is something like "traffic conditions/gray map". (I'm not near my car right now so I can't give the exact...

Thanks for your post!

I think that probably sums up what the issue is on my 2013 X3.

Hardly an inconvenience- I was more concerned whether something needed attention when I'm in for service...

Strange- I am suddenly getting occasional traffic data on the gray map, but limited to yellow and orange lines in congested areas. The green (and red) flow lines are absent.

I picked up my 2013 X3 in April. One of the things that REALLY bothers me is the absence of the street that I live on. While I didn't move in until May of 2011, the subdivision has been on the...

Looking to buy used X3

Prior to buying a 2008 X3, I owned several Honda Accords that all went well past 150k miles trouble free. The '08 was solid but had a couple nagging quality issues- nothing major but the kind of...

My 2008 had premium sound, my 2013 doesn't. There is a difference in audio quality- most apparent in the extreme low range and upper range. If I was special ordering a car, I would most definitely...

Squeaky door

On my '08 X3 I could eliminate it by tweaking the way I closed my windows. After raising windows and getting that "jam tight" seal, I'd just back it off a tiny bit- not enough to break the wind seal...

Buffering on iPhone vs X3 radio

I somehow introduced a level of confusion on this (something I am known to do!)

Until early January, there were no buffer issues at all on my X3. Bridges, underpasses, tree lines, whatever. ...
