  • BMW X3: replacement key cost

  • What car should I buy for $70,000?

    You’ve pretty much covered the field there, so it should come down to what you want from your car. Do you want comfort, safety, fuel efficiency, offroad capability, cabin space? If you are mostly driving on the highway, then a diesel SUV is probably the best bet. I would rule out a dual-cab ute because of comfort, unless you need the flexibility a ute gives you. I would rule out a hybrid, they’re not at their most efficient on the highway; they’re better suited to town use. Based on your annual mileage I wouldn’t keep the car any more than 3-4 years, that way you’ll have a decent resale value when you get out of it.

  • BMX X3 2015: is it good around town?

    The diesel is fine around town. Being just three years old there shouldn't be anything wrong, so apart from overall condition of the body, paint, and interior make sure it has been routinely serviced.

  • How to reduce fuel consumption in an X3 20i

    Your fuel consumption is way off the claimed consumption figures released by BMW. The company claims the X3 20i should get on average 7.3L/100km, 6.2L/100km on the highway, and 9.2L/100km in city driving. You have to allow for some variation on those numbers due to individual driving conditions, but to be so far out suggests there is something wrong with your car. I wouldn't expect it to reduce enough to get even close to those numbers simply by driving it. Have it checked by your BMW dealer.
