85K on the first set of tires! How is that even possible? They must look pretty slick.

I have 13k on my '08 X3. Auto trans is jerky and annoying, but not a safety issue. No problems really, although I did have to get a different phone that the bluetooth would "accept".

2007 Just turned 5,400 this morning. Its only that high because we've driven to South Carolina twice in the last month.


When we move to the UK someone is going to get a fantastic lease assumption.

Let us know when the AT gearbox (if so equipped) fails. I want a gauge as to the approx lifespan. Any repairs you had to do? That's a lot of miles though, congrats!
