Über-based on this thread he has a 2007 e83. That entire model range (04-10) was built by contract by Magna Styre in Gratz, Austria for us import. It was one if there best plants in their network and well regarded for efficiency and quality.

Sorry dt...thought I would help clarify....
Also the dealer is in full control of the warranty/goodwill approval process. Bmwna has given a lot of autonomy for self approval. I would ask your dealer directly to put you in contact with the regional vp for BMW, unless they are willing to continue working with you. I hate to say this but the 07 my was not the best year of the x3 line and trade assist/buy back might be the best options. I would pm Evlenger as he has been through this with an 07 and he might have some thoughts to help.
As a side note...don't let this bad apple ruin your taste for BMW/x3...my 09 has been rock solid to 99k miles. I would argue one of the best commute cars I have ever owned and fully expect it to hit 300k and beyond.
