No, really no changes. Just a strange and sudden thing. I'm surprised to hear you say that, especially given past BMW experiences and the fact that other manufacturer's have had oil seals figured out for decades. The 100k 05 x3 is even dry as a bone!

Seems very unacceptable for a brand of BMW's pricing premiums. You would think at the extreme even the EPA would even have issues with that type of answer. Yeah, our designs leak oil onto the ground after 50k's normal.
