Loaner is great. It's the little 4 cycl model but with most of the options. It's not a "beast" as Axel would say, but in sport mode and turbo's spooled I am not unhappy about it. It feels like there is more grunt there than my 328i convertible.

Also, this is the first BMW gasser that went over 2 weeks without a refuel, thanks to that eco pro and auto start/stop.

Quite amusing, the opinions on the F30/328i.

I will say this, I don't mind that engine. It's not a 6 cycl but so goes all the other cars, including the Merc (can you imagine a squishy detached Merc having to run at 5k rpms all day to get moving). Of all the 4 cycls out there BMW's is amazing.

As for the steering, the electronic steering is nice in an xdrive suv... just don't like it in the f30. Can't wait to see the m4 and what they choose for steering.

Do you find the the windows get filmy because the AC compressor gets turned off when stop/start is active? Drives me nuts with the humidity in Ga.

I think the engine is a better fit for the 1-series. IMO it feels like a RWD Passat with better NAV and slightly better suspension. Mine has premium pkg and I thought the seats were vinyl.

Still amazes me how well our cars compare. The F30 328 had to loose weight, gain 2 more gears, and drop 2 cylinders in order to get our MPG.

Long live the E90 335d.

Even with all the DDE and Carbon Buildup talk, I can't wait to get my car back.

As for fogging in the x3 with auto on/off, I haven't noticed that at all, and I am in DC (also muggy) with a black on black ext/interior combo. I will say, I garage mine and have covered parking at work, so it doesn't ever need to be on MAX, even in 100 degree weather.

The x3: as it's a soccer mom's car, I expected it to behave like that so, it doesn't have a high bar for me in the first place.

My only complaint is the third window shape. In the black interior, they use a light grey roof lining. The third window has a very "front hood" slope. When I quickly check to see if a car is coming, it creates the illusion that there is a grey car in my blind spot. If they did an anthracite lining, or at least changed that panel, I would stop double checking as much.

They gave me a x3 loaner... its terrible, i dont like it at all. The numb electric steering, the long turbo lag. The lack of any sort of decent styling... its just disappointing. :\

So mine went in for a repeated SES light, twice in a week, on Monday. They had previously replaced the back pressure sensor twice apparently, and this SES was "cylinder misfire". I previously did have an SES (few months ago) and they replaced #2 injector. Long story short, they pulled the head and sent it off to the machine shop to clean. I was also getting pretty crappy gas mileage.

So, what else do I need to know about the carbon buildup cleaning?

How many miles on the d? Any other details would also be helpful.

Some on the forum have concluded that these random attempts by dealers are likely better solved by replacing the DDE instead.

47k.

I don't know the specifics of the codes pulled unless it's on the receipts.

While mine was being machined, they also replaced the turbo and a few other systems. $10,500 total in repairs (covered by BMW). I never got a misfire code... only MAF codes.
