Wow..any closer and it will bite you. Read the sticky. The 2007 AT is one of the worst years to buy an X3. There are plenty of good one's out there I know, but this year had the highest percentage of troubles in the whole E83 series. And if you get a troublesome trannie it is a nightmare.I'm looking to buy a used 2007 x3 3.0si loaded with sport pckge/ navi with 58K miles. I like 2007 since they redesigned exterior and upgraded the engine. Is this year good or is it better to get a newer year. any thoughts?
Unless you are in a rush take your time. Don't get me wrong. I am very sad to see my 2008 go, but I can't have two cars for myself at this point. A lot of people get mad when I pick on the 2007 as they somehow take it as a personal affront to them for some reason.thanks for the feedback. I actually test drove a 2008 x3 today with no options. Interior felt cheap and outside looked ugly ( i am comparing this to the 2007 i was looking to buy that had prem. package, msport package with 19 inch rims, and navi. I also drove the 2013 x328 which was amazing but also costs 49K.
Dealers are notorious for BSing us when it suits them. My favorite is that's no big deal when it's on them and you need to get that fixed right now when it's on us. They are supposed to be the Mayo Clinic of maintenance and repairs. But sadly they are too often a free clinic in a 3rd world country.I have been saying from almost day one it is not software alone. That is why it can be mildly annoying to deadly dangerous. Germans are known for having low tolerances for mechanical designs. Depending on how far off they are the software will help mask or adjust for it. That is why some can be fixed and others a lost cause.
