A PPI might be worth a few hundred bucks vs. paying the big bucks later. With older vehicles the risk of a major failure is always there. If it's a secondary vehicle that you don't depend on for...

I've had RFTs patched before on my X3 even though the dealer or some tire places will tell you otherwise in order to sell you tires. As @autoputzer states above, it mainly depends where the puncture...

Yup. I went to an independant shop who took care of the registration in addition to swapping out the battery, making sure settings were retained, etc. It's an important part of the process and should...

Congrats! Looks like a great find. I have always been a fan of the tan seats as with an all-black interior, I cannot find anything if dropped -- especially at night! LOL
Enjoy!

Yup, after getting an X1 CPO days before the new CPO warranty terms (read: new CPO warranty terms that suck) I pretty much decided their CPO program is crap. They pretty much emulated what MB had...

I had the same on my X3 xDrive 28i. They were good tires, worked quite well in moderately deep snow (never had super heavy snows to test them in) and they generated pretty low road noise.

All good observations. I would have gone with a 6, had a good CPO been available at the time. Also had a number of issues, both in and out of warranty, with my 28i. Ironically, it seems long-term...

You'll see obviously better acceleration with the 35i vs. the 18i but also pay more at the pump. At 7000 ft the 28i runs great and you can get away with 89 octane fuel with no knocking. The sound of...

I personally wouldn't touch anything that's not got a warranty associated with it unless you're willing to shell out big bucks when (not it, when) something big happens. I put $1800 into my old '14...

That was at the dealership. They said they'd have to partially pull the engine?! It is indeed the valve cover gasket. And It was $1000, not $1600. I've done valve covers myself and it's pretty easy,...

I also recently found out I have a valve cover leak on the 2014 X3 xDrive 28i and it would be something like $1600 to have it fixed. There is another issue that also would run around $1k. My CPO ran...

A dealership can check it for you, perhaps an indy, as well. No reason to replace it if not necessary. Mine was down from 950 to around 550 crank power, after 6+ years and 80k miles.

Maybe you can find an indy to perhaps do the job less expensively, depending on what battery you end up getting as a replacement. It may end up costing about the same, but $450 is probably about the...
