Glad to hear they found the problem. I hope there was a Technical Service Bullitin out for that problem so you will be covered. Hopefully you'll get your X3 back very soon!
Its bought 2004/11. Guarantee is two years with unlimited kilometers.

More news today. I was supposed to get the car back today, but no. Service guy said that when they tried to start the engine today, starter motor went broke. It was -24c this morning.

So.. they get a new starter motor for tomorrow, and theyll change that too.

I really hope I get this on guarantee because what they already have done is:
- changed new battery
- chaged new crankshaft sensor
- changed new start motor

I think that the bill would be something like 1000 euros. If they say its not going to guarantee, I'm going to complain because I took the car for service about this same problem a year a go.

Hi Mane!

Sad to hear about your problems, I hope that you'll get the service to guarantee. The service is pretty pricy here in Finland, I have noticed that already...

I have 3.0iA (US model), and car seems to be actually a very nice winter car, at least so far...

Good luck!

I got the car from service for free, but they said they havent got any response from factory or from bmw import company. Lets wait and hope the best.

Its a totally different car now! Engine starts immediately and does not even hesitate. Today it was -24c and no problems.

I agree, its a very good winter car. Nice to leave from traffic lights when everyone else is having trouble to get their car moving and you just go like its summer

Glad you're back to normal mane! (the X3 I mean ) And to that last part! We had a little ice around here a while back and I had no problems getting around. The roads were glazed over with a thin layer of just ice. It was fun watching other people struggle to get going and I saw a Mustang spin out. He didn't hurt anything though.
