I coded too and it's not in the Easy section for Bimmercode.

It's useless for me too. Doesn't snow or ice here. Only drops below freezing at night very rarely, but there's no precipitation to...

Where's the badging on your car?

My wife pointed out that the badging on our car seems to be located in a weird spot. There aren't a lot of X3s in my area for some reason to compare so I wanted to ask here.

Our X3 sign is located...

It's still a black car. Unless you're protect the hell out of it and then basically spend all your time spending a ton of time cleaning it properly to maintain the finish, it's gonna show a ton more...

Ooof, yeah, Porsche has wonderful sports seats. The BMW ones aren't horrible or anything. They're just not as comfy as Porsche ones. The side bolsters are perfectly fine. It's the thigh bolsters...

Just curious, out of morbid curiosity, what was the MPG on a ML63?

You'll get a survey from BMW after you get your car. Ding them when they ask if you would recommend BMW to a friend. Say you hesitate because they charge for Apple CarPlay when no one else does. ...

Friend has it. I like it. It's my favorite shade of "black". The blue specks that come out in the sun is really cool and pretty.

Yeah, it shows up in the "tutorial" when you play and learn with the app before actually connecting.

On my car, at least half the options in the tutorial were greyed out in Easy mode. I didn't...

After a year, pay for one of those companies to code your car so you get CarPlay again.

Charging yearly for CarPlay is beyond absurd. I have no problems encouraging "aftermarket" solutions for a...

That's what I keep telling myself. That the Germans have autobahns and the firmness is intentional.

But 6+ hours from NorCal to SoCal (and back) has confirmed that the seats in this X3 are WAY...

I ended up getting the Bimmercode app.

Life is a LOT more pleasant now that the ASS stays off and I never see the stupid legal warnings when the car starts up.

It's all subjective. Maybe look into the X4?

Personally, I think the Porsche SUVs (and sedan) look extremely odd. And that the X4/X6 are butt ugly. But that's just me and my personal and...

In California, they're not built to order. You can order, but the dealers I've talked to subtly try and steer you away. They want the bird in the hand. They've got stock (a lot) and wanna move it....

Awesome! Thanks!

Yours look like there's less of a gap overall, but you can still tell they weren't designed exactly for the car due to the space right where the side sill connects to the bottom...

Can you take pictures? At least of the front?

If you look at JeeperJoey's 2nd picture, it clearly shows a small gap. I think most people won't care, but very picky people will.

There is adhesive, but I find it's more to hold things generally in place to allow you to more easily bolt everything in. There's some minor tugging and pulling to get things flush.

I guess it...

LOL First I heard that about white. I only buy white cars too (but for heat rejection). Maybe I need to go looking for bras too.

I tried the settings someone suggested on the other forum. System still sounds awful. I can hear a change, but it's just from one awful to another.

First I've heard of it. Any sources?

Doesn't make any sense to me. It would cost a lot more money and piss off old owners. Trying to be Honda and move downmarket?

Yes, the seating surfaces of MB is VASTLY better than the equivalent BMW. BMW has a great open pore wood too.
