Question about 2007 BMW X3 3.0si SAV

1 Answer

I test drove a certified 2007 BMW X3 with just under 30,000 miles that was loaded including having 18" tires at a dealership in san jose. It ticked until it had been driven for about 10 minutes. I feel that is a problem, the salesman informed me in no uncertain terms that it was totally normal, that they all do that if they haven't been driven in a couple of days. It also felt sluggish and he told me that was because of the 18" wheels. I test drove almost the same car with 17" wheels which felt like it had lots more power. Can you confirm whether or not it is normal to have a tick if not driven for a couple of days and if the 18" tires would make a car feel more sluggish. thx, d

Ticking posably but unliky.
18" vs 17" only if the wrong size of tire was mounted.
18" is only 1/third of the tire size, there is tread width and side wall hight.
wrong size can realy change how the car proforms, handles and rides.

Clunk under car on acceleration, but goes away after first initial clunk.


I would check the spark plugs and wires or coil packs. Sounds like the ignition system is arcing.

What the best tires for 2007 bmw 750i


Per TireRack.com, there were four tire size options for a 2007 BMW 750i starting at 18 inch going to 21 inch wheels. You will need to know what size you car currently has and whether they are staggered (narrow front/wider rear) or the same front/rear. You will also need to know if they are "Run flat" or regular. The site has good testing articles and ratings of various brands. The Uniform Tire Quality Grade number rates tire longevity (higher number lasts longer 100= approx. 7,200 miles) and the letters are for traction (AA is best) and temperature (A is best).
Continental Extreme Contact DWS is available in your size works well as an Ultra High Performance All Season.

Hello. This is due to a poor paint job at the factory. Begin at the dealership and see what if anything will be done. You may still be under warranty. Joje

Having to top up oil at least twice in between services is this normal? BMW x3 two years old or the oil light comes on


Get to the dealership, isn't it under warranty? The standard for oil consumption before it is considered a problem is 1Qt. per 1,000 mi. (or it used to be) but I wouldn't expect a car that new to use much if any but certainly no more than 1qt. per 5,000 miles, unless you already have 100,000+ miles on it. I threw those figures out because you didn't say how far you are going between changes or how much it takes to top it up. BTW, I hope you mean the oil low (amber add oil) light not the red out of oil/stop the car light. If it's red you'd better look for a huge leak and start with the filter and drain plug if you are going to quik change places.

Es 330. maint required light on! wat to do


The maintenance light is preset to come on at certain mileage marks by the automaker. The light is prompting the owner to have service completed that's in the owners manual or by contacting the dealership. For example, at 30,000 miles the owners manual may say that the auto needs to have oil change, transmission fluid check, rotate tires etc. Hope this helped.

How do I reset the oil service meter on a 2005 bmw x3


On the instrument cluster in the center there are two buttons (clock and s/r) .Press and hold the s/r (i think thats whats on the button) and turn the key to the first position. at first it will say TEST in the cluster. keep holding the s/r button and it will flash to your SIA (service meter) release the button and press and hold until it says reset (or reset flashes) and then press again. just play with it im going off of memory. just dont be afraid. as usual im sure your local bmw dealership would be glad to help
