    Hi everyone, just looking for some advice. I've put a deposit down on a 2.0d X3 M Sport, it's a 2017 plate and only done 15,000 miles. I know that you can have DPF problems when diesels aren't run regularly on the motorway. Would you steer clear of a low mileage diesel? This one has obviously...

    Hi, I've got an X3 (G01) with Live Cockpit - occasionally the screen goes blank (a warning type "bong" happens) meaning I have no speedometer etc until a stop, switch off, lock and wait - effectively reset). It doesn't always happen and I haven't been able to identify a pattern at this point -...

    I love the new design of the X3 2020, however I'm so disappointed it doesn't currently come with the latest BMW interior seen in the X5, 1, 3 series. Does anyone know when the x3 will be available with the latest interior? Thanks, Luke

    Hi I recently got an X3. It was the showroom model and I had no imput on tyres or rims. The problem is the run flats. Unless you are on a smooth road it’s a very harsh ride. I also live in rural Scotland and get snowed in every year. I want to change over to all season tyres that worked well for...

    Hi, hope someone here can help. Drove home from work yesterday evening, everything was fine. Nipped out to shops about 90 mins later and my engine has started making a hell of a noise (see clip), along with a short 1-2 second hiss when it's turned back off. https://vimeo.com/362757191 Initial...

    Hi Today I swapped my E83 X3 fabric rear seats for leather and all went well...until I started the front seats I started with the passenger seat. The swap was a manual seat for another manual seat. I undid the two nuts and two bolts and unplugged the yellow connector block and the cable that...

    Hi, I have an X3 with 20" alloys on runflats. It's an msport so the ride is quite stiff (can feel most bumps in road). Would the ride comfort improve if I swapped them for 19" alloys with bigger tyres? Or could I keep my 20s and just put bigger profile tyres on? Sorry if this seems abit thick...

    Hi there, I hope someone can help. I have a 2012 X3 Xdrive Msport 2ltr. 45k miles. A few weeks ago out of the blue the 'driving stabilisation' light came on and the car was just grinding forward. The recovery vehicle took it to a BMW dealership. They did diagnostics, did a test drive, cleared...

    Hi my 2018 X3 MSport 20d Xdrive has now done 23K kilometers and the tyres are more or less done. The fronts have worn the outside of the tyres with the center still showing as fine and the rears are exactly the other way round with the center of the tyres badly worn yet still showing thread on...
  18. Technical Guides for the BMW X Series
    X3 2.5 2005 I am attempting to help my elderly neighbour to diagnose an issue on his X3. The car runs fine and doesn’t overheat. However, it constantly claims that the coolant is low by displaying the tank symbol on the dash. He adds a little water everyday, which I believe is unnecessary as it...

    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...
