New to E83 X3 model & forum

Hell-o other fellow X3'er. Just wanted to introducing myself & the new addition. I'm new to this model ('07 X3 3.0 si) but have owned & worked on BMW's for the last 18 years but am just learning about the E83 & may need some help with the N52B30O1 engine & transfer case.
Believe it or not, with the newer technology in each model, the repairs are pretty much the same with some small changes.
This current X3 purchase is a high mileage previous CPO car, so was able to get all of the service records. Looks like the Oil Hsg seals & VCG are the first order of business, along with new plugs & all fluid changes.
I'm also a part time driver for the local BMW dealer, so get to try out most of the newer cars.

I have also been involved in local BMW CCA; just retired as WNC coordinator (Asheville area) Tarheel Chapter. I'll more than willing to help others in any way that I can with issues I'm aware of & their possible fixes & such. I do all my own work from replacing engines, clutches, rebuilding top ends and all the other "typical" maintenance work.
Please let me know if I can be of any help.
