    Folks,

    Just got my F25 X3. Does anyone have an issue where the trunk storage cover (the one that hide your hook rings and other stuff) does not fits between the metal railings correctly/snugly?

    Dear all,

    Just got my F25 X3 pre-LCI x20d last week, it's a 2nd hand CBU unit, very rare colour - Dimond Red.

    However, I didnt check carefully enough on it's condition, after i sent this car for a full service, my workshop told me that front lower arm both side need to be changed, air-con gas leaking on the cooling coil, and engine mounting and gear box mounting condition not good, shaking a bit...seems like need to spend some $ to bring this beauty back to tip-top condition.

    Congrats bro on ur new ride. sorry to hear that. possible to reach out to the dealer that sold u the car and ask for them to fix those issues, on a goodwill basis? its only been a week. im sure u can persuade them to work out something.

    it's the transfer case issue...BMW official will not fix this but only change a new one, i was told the price will be RM20k.
    This transfer case issue happened on a lot of x-series cars, X3 E83 and X5 are common.

    It will usually come out when the car get fully warm up, and especially in cornering/U-turn; unfortunately, i didn't aware this at all when i tested driving this car.
    I was driving too gentle and on straight line pick-up only.

    the lucky thing is, outside workshop are able to fix this, Optimum Motorworks at Kayu Ara is working on this for me, it will take few days...they told me not so expensive...praying hard.

    Congrats bro! On the engine noise, how noisy are u talking about? Normally during cold starts, it will be a bit noisy with the tek tek tek tek sound...... after awhile, it wld calm down n the noise should be lesser. Its because of the lifters, so its normal.
