For those of us X3 owners who did not purchase the in-dash BMW GPS option, do we still have at least a GPS receiver antenna in the shark fin?

This happened to me too. I don't get it. I drove all over the German and Swiss alps in February last year (ie, much snow) without a problem. Then 9 months later, one weekend in the snow (back home)...

When you hit the "auto" button, the a/c snowflake always lights up. So, if it is say, 2 degrees outside, does the a/c system actually run? Seems like a waste of gas to make cold air when the ambient...

Trying to get the Business CD to not suck is asking too much, sorry...

Post purchase experience?

I bought an X3 last February via ED. One of the most thrilling ways to leak 40k ends (seriously), and I'm quite thrilled with the car.
