I have created this base for a 10.25” sat nav
That was only possible for the LHD só now RHD can also have it. I’m waiting for the screen to arrive and I will post here the details and pictures. Anyone interested I will have more for sale.

Just a post for interest. My infotainment screen failed last week. Not the usual problem which fixes after software update or reset but lines on the screen.
I think it died due to overheating as the screen was very hot.
BMW diagnostics today confirmed screen failed.
Here's the punchline...
Hey guys & gals
Thanks for adding me

This is my first bummer, loving the X3 so far, got it due to have back issues, and so far getting in and out the vehicle is so easy on my back and it's so comfy.
Looking at doing some upgrading to her, but not sure what!
Hi all, apologies if this is not in the right place.
I am looking at a BMW X3 on 60 plate, it has the standard screen, but not the Sat nav.
I have this on my 5 series and would like to see if this can be retrofitted.
I see kits on 'Bay , but just wondered if it was possible please ?
Was expecting an AGM battery to last longer than 4 years but my 2015 f25 is repeatedly losing the clock settings every few weeks which I suspect is due to the car shutting down system elements when it detects low battery? Have put it on a Ctek charger but symptoms keep coming back.
As the post says, want more power for the X3 so the missus says so best place for a remap in Yorkshire please? Not one of these generic £150 maps aomewhere that actually tailors the map to your car. I’ve come from a 360bhp S3 to this X3 an I love my bimmer but miss the power of theS3 it was...

Have 2017 F25 fitted with Sat Nav business edition.
Unit is slow to start, typically taking 30 - 45 seconds to load the map, when the vehicle is cold.
Once map loads nearly instantaneously, typically taking under 5 seconds.

I went to retrieve the wheel lock key from the compartment on the left of the boot where the toolkit and first aid kit lives.
I found that the compartment was full of water to the level of the wheel key. The toolkit was under water and the first aid kit was partly...
Hi everyone - I need the transfer box replacing on my 2011 X3 and not willing to shell out £3500 as quoted by local BMW dealership !!
I've been advised there's a firm, possibly from the Birmingham area, that attend your home, supply and fit a reconditioned transfer box, rather that having to go...
I really need your help/ insights in this one please.
My X3 F25 2013 2.0 Diesel N47 - 50200 mi started to produce a noise from the engine when accelerating - actually the noise starts when the car decelerate. Around 2k rpm. I believe, I have not heard it before and I am now...

It had the gear selector replaced a few months ago as it developed a fault, it was replaced with genuine bmw part
However since then we have a problem when the start/stop is enabled

Hi to all,
I have an intermittent fault with the O/S rear wing tail light LED. I have taken it off and cleaned/raised the contacts a couple of times, however it is a lot dimmer than the other side and eventually goes out.
Do I need a new unit or can the LED board be repaired or purchased...
Hi all. Noticed last week the engine of my bmw x3 2.0d 2011 (80,000miles) has started to rattle. It happens only at low revs around 1500revs, and disappears when I put my foot down. Its much more noticeable when driving slower through town but its a very pronounced rattle. Its sounds like a...
I have a 2011 X3 F25 3.0d with 70000 miles on it which has an inlet manifold with multiple small areas which have melted. The manifold has been under boost pressure at the time as the material has been pushed out from the inside of the manifold. The fault manifested itself as a burning smell...
Hi guys and girls,
Just wanted to see if anyone could shed some light (good or bad I really don’t mind ?) about my purchase of an f25 2.0L diesel. It’s done 86000 miles and seems to be a cracking little motor but I keep hearing issues of timing chains and swirl flaps? Are they prone to...
