With the exception of the OP thanks guys.
If you take the time to really read what I am saying, most of my complaints are picking on BMWNA and not necessarily the X3.
I detested my 07 AT X3, I really liked my 08 MT X3. I will continue to speak out when I think BMWNA is shorting the consumer, help those that PM about stereo fixes, and advice on how to handle BMWNA when they stonewall a customer.
Sorry you are one of those people that think I am attacking you when I pick on BMWNA.
Think about some of the things I have recently pocked on. The sun roof. A number of people openly state they are afraid to even use the sun roof as the risk of failure is so costly they just keep it closed all the time. Really? In a $50k vehicle. That is the kind of things I "Bash".
But next time I give away something and you need it, I will still help even you as people that originally beat me up for changing the stereo are now constant people I keep in good esteem and chat with off board.
Otherwise, meh such is life.
