Mein Auto: 2011 X5 35D
Talking Back to the BMW Family x35d

Hello everyone,

after owning a 2006 bmw 330xi (which i miss daily) I have owned another car, and I am now a happy bmw owner again. vin 5UXZW0C59BL658686 - I absolutely love it, it has so many cool options.

I just purchased a 2011 a x35d with 40k miles, I wanted to run it by you guys since you have helped me in the past. Feels good to be back!

1) I have checked online and i cant figure out if i have the kick to open comfort access option for my trunk - i do have the keyless entry/start

2) When I have the car running in very low temperatures it seems like it gets "stuck" in a higher gear for longer than usual

3) Navigation screen has some scratches and i was wondering if any of your guys have any experience with that

4) Should i get an extended warranty? Are these cars pretty reliable? I bought this car from a dealer, but it is really well preserved. I have an appointment on the 13th to have it all checked at my local bmw dealer, car is still under factory warranty until feb 24 2015


Thank you all!!!!!

1. The comfort access does not open the trunk by kicking. That is a new feature.

2. When the temperature is low, do you mean it get stuck in a lower gear (higher RPM?) I have not seem it stuck in a higher gear (lower RPM.) The lower gear is there to help speed up engine warming.

As for extended warranty, it has been discussed. Search and you will find some topic on it. I have not gone with extended warranty.
