#1548 of 4185 x3 passenger side air bag problems
Nov 25, 2004 (8:31 pm)
I have a 2004 x3 2.5 with a defective passenger side airbag occupant detection sensor. The sensor turns on the passenger side air bag off light and a red air bag warning ligh on the dash. Is this common? The dealer said the part is on back order and will not be in for several weeks or months, They claim everything works well and not to worry and won;t rent me a car. I am very displeased with Bmw and theeir customer service.

i got my ipod integrated to my x3 today. as they were checking the x3 for any concerns from the manufaturer two things turned out. it was the heated seats and the controller or the computer in the engine(im not really sure). they said that these are just minor problems and didn't really specified whats wrong. does anybody know anything about this?

Your mentioning about the ipod integration is interesting, as I have an ipod and was wondering what options exist besides getting an auxiliary input installed. What did they do for you and how much did it cost?

$326.36 for parts and installation (with free carwash...hehehe).it's worth it. but if you have a nav system, forget it.

Is it just called the ipod integration package?? That must be cool, now you can use your X2 controls to navigate through your Ipod.
Anyone have any other connection experiences, as to what works well, maybe a less costly option?

The iPod connector cost me $135 and installation was $40. I think your stealer took you for a ride!
#1554 of 4185 X3 radio controls
Dec 05, 2004 (8:17 pm)
Hi all, on my 325xi, when I use the steering wheel controls for my radio, I can scan between all 12 preprogrammed FM stations. On my X3, it scans the 6 preprogrammed on the current FM holder (ie FM2 vs FM1) I have to manually hit the FM button to scan the other 6 stations...
Is this the norm? just wondering, thanks

#1557 of 4185 Heated side mirrors
Dec 07, 2004 (2:17 pm)
I dropped a down payment on a new 05 X3 3.0 loaded to the max today. And I realized that heated side mirrors was not available. Not even on the cold weather package. Surprisingly only the X5 offers them. Very strange since my 1995 325i has them?? Did BMW engineers miss an e-mail or something?
LOL, anyway can't wait for it to be built, I might be able to drive down to Austria, and get a plant visit the days my car is being built and catch a glimpse at it.
Jan 28 is all of a sudden to far off!!!!
