2012 BMW X3: Hot CDs

January 9, 2013

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

I don't usually listen to CDs in the car. But a business association that I belong to started a book club. I can get a lot of "reading" out of the way on my one-hour commute to the office.

One nice thing about the BMW X3's CD player is that it displays chapter titles on the display screen. Because we are always switching cars and I have to take my CDs with me, it helps me keep track of where I left off.

A weird thing about this CD player: When I eject the disc, it is hot. I'm mean like really hot to the touch. I doubt this is how it is supposed to be. Does anyone else have an X3? Let us know if you have a similar experience. The commenting feature should be functioning soon.
