It's encouraging to see these kinds of relatively trouble free high mileage X3's. My wife's 2007 has been trouble free since new and looks showroom. It's about to turn 47,000 and we're thinking we will be keeping it for quite a while.

Passed 150k mls (240.450km) couple days ago in Boone, NC. Got the mirror assembly fixed and an ATF (and filter set) changed at the dealer earlier this week. Felt it deserved an ATF change given the hard work it's done in the mountains.

Great news for you (and us) for sure! I'm looking for 200k out of this bad boy.

I'm at 119k now, and nothing out of the ordinary wear and tear

'09 X3 w/80K miles and no issues. Scanning the replies to this thread suggests that many X3s are "occasional use only" vehicles. Interesting.
