2012 BMW X3: Caution: Filling May Be Hot
March 08, 2012
After popping the X3's hood to check the oil (before realizing it has an electronic oil level monitor), this warning showed up both within the instrument cluster and on the navi's monitor. The boxed-in area where an internal combustion engine resides can be hot? Who knew?
Next thing you know, you'll see warnings on coffee cups cautioning java junkies that indeed that beverage is hot...
Kidding aside, it's nice to know that BMW cares.
