2005 BMW X3 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I had a 528i before this (loved it). I thought I wanted an suv and bought this x3 with both the sport and premium pkg. Not nearly the quality, Interior is cheap looking and black on black peels off. Head lights didn't stay aligned, and having them aligned was not covered by warranty. Keys remote doesn't always work and I have to lock it with key. I have taken the keys back to BMW four times to have them reset. What a pain. Fuse went out on auxiliary outlet and BMW says not covered by warranty (this fuse cost less than $1.00). The car looks ok on the exterior, but the sunroof rattles like it is broken, BMW says it is normal operation. Overall, this is a car.

Your dealer is a dillweed. BMW issued a service bulletin to fix the remote key issue. I had my antennae replaced under warranty and never had the problem again
