While not my day job I've always worked on my own cars so I plan on doing most of the work myself. Should I expect to be buying special BMW tools? If we buy an X3 it's going to be for the long hall (6+ years)

I know I shouldn't ask because I know with my luck you did but... did you have chestnut brown leather seats? I saw a new X3 (out of my price range) with the chestnut leather seats and loved them. So far all I've found are Automatics with those types of seats.
Exactly what I had, but called tobacco brown. Heated seats, Xenon adaptive, and some other nice goodies like aluminum pedals, carbon fiber roundels, etc. 17.5k
