getty150 is on a distinguished road
Road Rambler trip

Last night just returned from a 1200mile round trip in my 05 X3 m54b30 215k on the clock.

Preformed like a champ !

And in 90 plus degree heat also experienced a 30min deluge!

Burned maybe less than a third quart of oil... I'll check what the reading is for oil this morning end of the trip... impressed with that 5w40 euro Quacker State!

Gunned the X3 a couple of times (open road up to 100mph) smooth....got to check that CSB or guibo tho. Check Engine Soon light appeared but after a couple of rest stops the light disappeared...never experienced that before...
ill connect the scanner before day's end....DTC 276D and 281C if I remember correctly.
Even experienced TN mountainous incline and decline .

After a run like that, the brakes will need to be replaced soon.

For the loss, The X3 took on a small rock from a simi and now have a shatter dime size spot on the windshield. And with no warning while traveling at speed 70+ I ran over a portion of Simi truck tire, no damage to the front but somehow it took out the rear bumper center snap-on cover...I'll take that hit! I'll now let her sit a bit, again I have to replace those pads.
