Just wanted to introduce myself and my X3
2004 BMW X3 3.0i Silver on Black
Premium Package (Maybe Cold Package too as there is a ski bag and heated steering wheel?)
Adaptive HID lights
Navigation
55,000 Miles!

Just had one quick question, the previous owner said his wife liked to fill up the gas with the engine running. This would through off an engine light for about 70 miles and then go off. Is this BS?

You should always fill up the gasoline with the engine OFF for safety reasons. Yes, it will throw an evap emissions code (SES light) and then the system has to go thru 5 or 6 successive self-checks with no leaks before the light will extinguish.
