2012 BMW X3: Checking the Oil

April 19, 2012


This past Monday I checked the X3's engine oil level. Took just a few seconds from the comfort of the BMW's driver's seat. A click here and a click there with the vehicle's iDrive dial and the SUV's computer told me the "Engine oil level OK". 

Then I checked our records. To date we have added zero oil to the BMW's turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six. Not a drop in nearly 7,000 miles of driving.
