I was fuelling up today and noticed that there is a specially designed plug and socket style holding system for storing the fuel filler cap whilst the nozzle is inserted. Is this X3 specific or BMW specific, my previous Audi never had this..

Thanks VikingOne. I don't think I've spotted you yet (Wokingham), I live in Bracknell.

Just had the call, picking up on 26/10/11 in the afternoon.

We picked up ours yesterday. Had the usual walkthrough in glorious sunshine. Then drove it home in driving rain and hail. The car felt surefooted and well planted. I must say I was pleased that I stuck with space grey, it really is cracking. The electric tow ball is sweet, especially with the zoom on the rear view camera.

I went from an A3 Sportback (2005) to an A5 Coupe (2008) to the X3 and the X3 trumps both of them by a long shot. The A3 had DSG (now called Stronic) and the auto box in the X3 is every bit as good. I just miss my flappy paddles.

nope... you'd need to ask your dealer, but it also says on one of the stickers in the door frame..
