good news- ran over a nail, slow leak, BMW service found and suggested a place to patch it, which we did, instead of shelling out $300 for new tire.
No issues with the sun roof yet.
The kick motion sensor to open rear hatch appears to be blocked by the tow hitch.
NorskeX3m, read the personal message I sent regarding OEM RFT Warranty Coverage.

"Maintenance issues" is a politically correct term for "broken" or "broke ****." If it's just broken, still operable and therefore not broke ****, then a politically correct term for fixing it is "unscheduled maintenance." Repairing something that's broke **** is referred to as "emergency maintenance."

Where I worked, if something caught on fire, for political correctness, we referred to that as a "heat event."

But, since you're interested, because of the high fenders and nose and the oil fill cap and oil filter being way back on the engine, it's a pain in the butt to change the oil in a G01 unless you're 6' 5" tall. It will also prevent used car shoppers from looking down the oil fill hole and seeing if the previous owner(s) skipped a few oil changes along the way.

Mein Auto: 2008 E90 335i
10K miles on a '19 3.0 x-drive. no issues related to the car... knock on wood. I put 90k on my last BMW, '08 E90 335i. on that one I had to replace the water pump, and AC condenser out of warranty. 2700 for the condenser, and something like 700 for the water pump. Ended up being one the best cars that I ever owned, and the actual cost of ownership was not all that bad. I don't modify my cars, I never chipped the 335, it had enough power for me out of the box. If the car wants service, then it gets service from the dealer. I get a 10% discount for being a BMWCCA member. My overall experience with the BMW's is worlds better than the experiance I get from our Toyota dealership. I am a fan of BMW after the sale. This is the main reason that I bought another.

I've had my share of issues:
1. Rear kick not opening hatch (fixed)
2. Pano rattle (fixed)
3. Rear center console outlet dead (fuse)
4. Drivers side door brake doesn't hold door open (service said they fixed it but they didn't)
5. Now my driver side seat squeaks every time I get in or shift my weight while under way (taking it back AGAIN)

Had this happen to me too, 2019 X3 M40i, still at dealer - has been a few days already. They are saying there was a TSB about headliner foam pinching off drain tubes.

Nothing like this for me.

no issues, 2500 mi

I've had no issues in the first 2500 miles. Ordered car with sunroof delete so I think I've avoided the biggest problem with the G01.

Was thinking the same thing.

I see that Consumer Reports has dropped the G01 X3 from recommended status based on reports of 'numerous' maintenance issues with the 'refreshed model'. (I'm well aware of the controversial nature of CR ratings on this forum, so I already have a grain of salt built into my decision process).

Yet on this forum I see almost no serious complaints -- and we are all more likely to complain about something than say everything is great. If you visit the F10 forum, you'll see threads on drive train and chassis malfunctions, transmission lag, pull to the right, non-op window shades, headlight condensation, etc.
As the OP, when I asked about "maintenance issues" I was referring to things that need repair, whether covered under warranty or not, and not to routine servicing like oil changes, etc.

While its an important distinction if you are talking about the BMW extended maintenance or extended warranty programs, in the broader sense that is not the case.

BTW, I picked up my X3 M40i February 26th. At ~5500 miles now, I have experienced no issues that needed to be addressed either thru a warranty repair or routine service.

Just a hair over 35K miles for me, just did my fourth service (final complimentary one for me).

Only had two issues that I needed the dealer to take care of.

1) Lumbar on drivers side stopped working, that was earlier this year and the dealer replaced the lumbar motor.

2) Recently started getting check engine light, turned out to be the active flaps in the grille. The grille worked fine but apparently it stayed open too long which was giving the check engine error. Dealer had to "code" the flaps again (thus wiping out all my coding).

So far this has been much more reliable than my 2017 E300 and 2012 550XI.

I just did my quarterly under-hood check. Our 30i needed 400ml of coolant to bring it back up to full. It took 9k miles for the 400ml to disappear. We had a coolant pump go out at 5k miles. From that, I now know that the low coolant warning message comes on at ~700ml below full.
