Mein Auto: 2013 X3 XDrive 28i
new x3 owner

Got the vehicle yesterday
Black Sapphire
Tech Package
Premium Package
CWP
Sat Radio
BMW APPS
Coming from 328i, i am overwhelmed with complexity of I drive, I am sure i will get used to it, it feels like using a PC while driving, simple tasks are hidden in menus.

Overall great vehicle, pictures attached.

You will definately get used to it. I find it easier to use voice. It has knows most of the iDrive options. Good luck Definately post some pics !

I've found programming the radio buttons to iDrive functions to be helpful.

Welcome,

With respect to the iDrive, you'll either set it and forget it or eventually get used to it.


I find the voice feature to be not much of a feature at all.

Welcome!

I just want to say how helpful everyone on this forum has been. Just bought a 2013 X3 35i and I hate getting out of the car! It's my first BMW and has revamped my love for driving. What a phenomenal car
