Question My recent canadian service

Hi,

I recently took my 2013 28i X3 into service due to a low coolant light warning (14k km). So I thought I would ask the advisor to do the following:

- Update ASS so to store "last use" setting --> Advisor respond saying specifically BMW has instructed them not to do update for X3. so negative nothing can be done

- I have seen warning "Chassis Stabalization Malfunction" twice, so I asked the advisor to see if they can pull history and see whats wrong ---> advisor said they ran a check and everything is ok (the ran a maintenance scope/reset CBS... that's what it said on invoice)

- Asked if the sport mode can be program to last use ---> respond no.... this is probably the only one I agree

As side question to the forum here:

- I believe there is no close trunk from key fob is this right?
- The parktronics seems to sometimes work and sometimes don't. Sometimes it will not show distance after I parked . Is this because it only activates itself at low speed.... and yes I sometimes park fast with head in .
- Also does the headlight suppose to swivel.... never seen that happen... think my C300 is more obvious

Thanks in advance ... I am located in Toronto.

Next time if you see "Chassis Stabalization Malfunction" error, you should drive your xar directly to the dealership and show them the error...... I have those errors couple of times and they finally fixed that after I drove to them directly without shutting down the car.....

Just a matter of coding. Mine works for opening and closing.

That is weird, mine always works. How fast to you back up? 20 mph?

Swivels. Side to side (when turning your steering wheel) and up and down (on startup). But only on Xenons.

I believe that the Up/Down is a standard function on the Xenos.
BUT

The Swivel (side to side) with the steering wheel is normally as an option. (maybe included in a pack or something)

The Canadian x3 only get auto leveling not side to side like other markets. I'm looking into a coding solution to this 'made for Canada' oversight.

SIB 12 15 12 This is the bulletin for autostart/stop so this is not allowed to applied to the X3? how about the throttle lag one (that applies only to pre2013 model only?)

On a side note , I wish they are more explicit in terms of what's incl in the canadian version... I thought swivel is always standard with the package...

minor correction. In the Canadian market the 35i does come with auto levelling but not swivelling headlights.
