BMW X3 Instruction Videos and Electronic Manual

Not sure if everyone was aware of this but BMWUSA has posted a bunch of new how to videos for the X3. These are great. Also owner's manual in PDF format for download.

This is really good. Thanks for posting. If I had seen this earlier I would have saved some time finding out how to reset the onboard computer and the trip counter!

I think this thread should be on the sticky area on the top of the forum, I am not sure how to do that, but if someone in the forum know how to do it, we should go-ahead and do so. By that way the info will be useful for all future members as well for all of us to go in and check as and when needed.

Jason has the power to do this. I'll PM him to see if he agrees.

Great post! I have a 2011 X5 and was checking out the videos, I realized that the 2011 X3 has automatic night mode for the navigation. I hope that comes to the X5 soon as a software update.

Great Videos

This information is "fantastic". Today for me is the BIG day, picking my new X3 i35 M Sport package today at 6:00pm. Spent the last hour (at work ) watching the videos and sure by now I know more about the new X3 features than the dealer salesman...

2011 X3 IPod

Is it annoying when you get a new car and the Ipod wont work? BMW say the Ipod Touch is too old so I get a new one, still doesn't work. All cables etc. have been tried and BMW are now going to 'look at it' on June 9

i don't know why, but the original link in this thread leads to 43 short videos, while this link leads to 58 videos, but looks like it should be the same page
