We just picked up our 2007 X3 3.0si from the dealer after its "Inspection I" service (32K miles) and it got an oil & filter change, brake fluid flush, as well as front & rear brake pads. Not too shabby for the price. $0....zilch, nada, nothing.
While our lease isn't up until July 2010, time does fly by when you're having fun (with our 2 1/2 year old & 11 week old son). We're very happy with our Montego Blue X3. It hasn't given us any trouble & the few times we've brought the car in for service the dealer (Wide World BMW in Spring Valley, NY) has been nothing short of top notch.
I say to myself every now & again that we could very easily replace the X3 at the end of its lease with a loaded Accord EX-L V6 w/ NAV, but I love cars (and BMWs especially) too much to have something so... vanilla (before I get bashed by any Honda lovers, my daily driver is a 2001 Prelude Type SH).
I'm thinking maybe we'll BUY a 2010 (or 2011) X3 (new body) or maybe if I can swing a super-duper deal on a leftover E60 535 (or 550...YUMMY). Does anyone think BMW will bring the next gen X3 as a diesel. If not, then I'll just have to "suffer" with the brilliant N52 Twin Turbo Inline 6.

bring to the dealer (hopefully still under warranty, This is a known problem with the x3. I had the dealer perform the service bulletin on my 05 x3 and it works great now

Jul 11, 2009 (9:40 pm)
Just bought a 08 used X3, the car has bluetooth connection. the Phone & bluetooth manual says the pairing code is available from the "onboarding literature". I have the owner's manual but have no idea what the "onboarding literature" is. Anybody here has any idea on how I can get the pairing code?

I have a 2007 X3 and this worked for me.
Open up the back of your X3. on the left hand side of the cargo area is a compartment that you have to push a button to open it up. Once you do, then remove the cover and look down below the DVD player towards a white Label. On the label, there will be a set of numbers. look for something that says PK#### .... What ever those 4#'s are, is your passkey to activate the bluetooth.
I hope that helps.

My wife's '06 X3 billows ominous white smoke upon startup and idles roughly. This occurred for the first time last night from a vehicle that hasn't given us any real trouble before. I'm somewhat concerned about the welfare of my bank account since naturally this has occurred while her vehicle is out of warrantee (we extended with maintenance only). Anyone with thoughts on what the trouble could be before we head to the dealership on Monday will be greatly appreciated.

Where's the smoke coming from? Engine? Exhaust?

Sorry about the delay in responding. It's coming from the tailpipe and only at startup, it's not continuous.

White exhaust usually indicates the presence of water. If it only happens at start up and is not continuous then it may simply be a result of water condensation in your exhaust system.
