Verify that your 2011 X3 requires battery registration. BMW phased that requirement in different years for different models.

I agree with the comments about not needing an engine flush if the oil is changed regularly. Unfortunately, when my wife's 2012 X3 came out, BMW was only doing oil changes at the 15,000 Mike...

Thumbs up Sport plus mode

Good luck! I can’t see your run being canceled; delayed at worse case. One downside to the M40. If you’re out solo driving in “sport plus” mode, and under age 50, you’ll have to spend sometime...

RFT flat tire fix

"Americas Tires" will repair as long as it's not near the edge (speaking from experience). Free!

On the East Coast, it's called "Discount Tires".:thumbup:

Rebate, incentives, and finance programs are probably better now. Downside, if you want to pickup at the Performance Center/factory, this is not an option for now. No word on when it will reopen.

Here's a cheaper option; buy an American brand SUV upfront (instead of the BMW). Maybe an Honda/Acura.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

BMW six

Just passed down BMW X3 35 to our son. Got 2020 X3 M40. HP is up over 380, and if you need it, you can get M suspension. Like driving a sport car. (I have a 2007 Z4 3.0si).
Or go for it and get the...

So you bought your moms car. Congratulations! Unfortunately, you will suffer from "stupid grin" every time you exit the car after spins on the backroads. Especially with the top down!

Blade replacement used to be part of the initial bumper to bumper maintenance coverages. Have they been removed?
Used to be 4 years or 50,000 miles. Now I believe it's 3 years 40,000 miles.
