Mein Auto: 2006 X3
Just purchased a 2006 X3 CPO last month. The driver's seat had a small hole on the left side that looked like a cigarette burn. Dealer fixed the hole before we drove it off the lot but a week after driving with the seater heater on we realized what had caused the hole! The seat would heat to a very high temperature, too hot to touch, and created a burning smell. Dealer agreed to replace the seat bottom but yesterday the burning smell and high temperature returned in the lower left back area. We bought the extended warranty but based on some comments here I'm not sure if the replacement will be covered or whether the dealer with take care of this one for us too.
