My X3 is finally in “Production Begins” status…
On my previous cars I'd get lots of spray/sand debris against the car without the front mud guards. I wasn't sure if the configuration of the X3 would have similar results but I didn't want to risk extra rocks hitting the body. I only have 550 miles and several chips in the bumper and 1 in the windshield. I wouldn't notice it as much if I didn't clean it constantly.

Congrats on your car. Share photos when you get it.

Had my first error today while driving. "Pinch protection disabled". A few minutes earlier I lowered my window to pay for gas. Nothing was caught in the window at any time. After seeing the error I lowered and raised the window and it went away. Hate to think what's to come next.
