They are saying the X3M arrival is July of 2019. I'll believe it when I see one on the dealer lot.

The Msport package is just items like steering wheel, rims, foot rest, etc. It's basically body add on that has an "M" insignia.

This site will be for a true X3M. Now you get the higher...

Finally is the right term.

I went on yesterday and did a build. Unfortunately I can't tell what features are standard with the X3M. There are a lot fewer options than on previous X3's, so I...

Mine blew under acceleration about 2 years ago. Leaving a stop sign, heard a loud pop, then performance degraded. It was driveable, just not responsive until I had it fixed.

I haven't found anything that works. I've tried waxes, polishes and acrylics. Strangely it's the trim on top of the windows and not underneath. It's also not on the trim...

You are spot on. My fronts lasted 20k miles longer than the rears. Completely opposite to all I knew. Auto hold, traction control, and other nannies use the rears quite a bit. I was at the MB...

There's one other piece of information that will help if you have to do this repair. I only discovered it when I bought the new hose. The hose comes with specially designed end fittings, including...

I need to post a correction. The engineer in me tore into my old tank. I was correct when I said the seal is inside the tank, however the seal is not against the side of the sensor. There is a...

Ok. I have the answers to my own questions.

There is no seal or grommet that goes between the level sensor and the tank. It's just plastic face to plastic face. The actual seal is up inside the...

I wouldn't quite consider a 200k mile Porsche with oil leaks, no radio, and no A/C fancy, but I guess that depends on the story you're trying to spin. And even with 11 quarts of oil and two filters,...

I would say a single replacement is out. As a minimum, I would replace 2 tires and put them on the same axle. Of course all 4 is better. I've frequently had different tread depths between front and...

Check my physics auto, but I don't think V is the volume of the tire. Isn't it the specific volume; 1/density, which shouldn't be a constant if you solve for it given actual P and T. If density...

Funny, I was handed an X5 just today as a loaner. It feels floaty, bloated, and underpowered for the weight. I wouldn't have one unless it was an X5M or one of the older
