59,500 as of today (17k are mine). Drives and looks like new! Rear differential replaced at 45k under warranty, due to some bushings failing. No major other issues.

Other than regular maintenance the only repair was a blown transfer case seal at about 120,000 miles.
I am very interested in a 5 series next time. Because I live in Upstate NY I will definitely get the X-drive.
If the X3 continues to perform well I am considering handing it down to my 17 year old. My only concern with this is that when a repair is needed we all know how much it can cost.

Rapidly approaching 60K after the comfortable 80-90 MPH trip back to OH from CO. No problems since replacing the Instrument Cluster under warranty a few years ago.

Cheers

My Wife's 2004 X-3 3.0 just turned 101,000 miles.
It's now out of the extended 100k maintenance.
Still rides like new. Everyone that rides in it can't believe it has 100k miles.
