Dodged a expansion tank bullet

Just came off a 4hr round trip... no problems what so ever...parked the 06 X3 218k on the clock m54b30.
Parked her couple of days for "rest".
Returned to take her to the car wash...instantly notice low coolant light illuminated.
Went to add and coolant went straight to the floor. I'll investigate later for where the expansion tank popped (i guess) yeah! It popped...split right down the side ...delivery should most likely be after the Christmas holiday.

Congrats! I also got lucky when I had my Z4, my expansion tank cracked but it somehow cracked where it did not leak during driving but would leak as soon as engine was turned off which was cool because I could make it home then repair it, no tow

Every 90K-100K, do a partial cooling overhaul.
Use only BMW coolant reservoir (or CoolXpert brand from FCPEuro)...

Mine popped 2017, when southeast Texas had a freeze! Thank God in the driveway.

Weíre freezing again 2021! This time, new cooling system, with new antifreeze.
