    So recently i’ve noticed that the battery for my 2005 BMW x3 3.0L was dying so i decided to change it out. After about a week of regular driving it wouldn’t start in the morning to what I assumed was cold weather but upon further testing I noticed the battery was draining. Symptoms were no start...

    Within the past week my 2004 X3 seems to stutter upon acceleration. It is a manual and seems to be noticeable when shifting between 1st and 2nd gear and then from 2nd to 3rd gear at approx. 2000/3000 rpm. It is subtle for now and maybe just 3 or so stutters/shakes then drives normal. It feels...

    It happens about 60 seconds after the car has been off, and any time I go to open the car/unlock the car via the remote after a long period of time. It doesn't happen when I re-lock or unlock the car, only after long periods of time without interaction. https://streamable.com/v9vrno

    Hi there, I am having issues with my 06 X3. We ran a diagnostic test using a Foxwell nt510 Elite.

After the oil change and recalibration, the improvement is minor, dealer has advised the whole case needs to be replaced in order to fix...

    So I've actually driven two versions of the X3, the 2011 and just recently upgraded to the 2016/2017 (not entirely sure on the year date, but it's definitely not the latest 3rd gen I believe it's the last of the 2nd gen). But to the issue, when I first got the car, to my memory the brakes were...

    Hello X3 & BMW community, I'm seeking some feedback or advice. I've owned 2 other BMW X3 models in the past; a 2004 & 2007 E83 models. I currently drive the 2012 BMW X3 35i F25 model.
