View Full Version : X3 Break-in & Enhancements

03-14-2005, 01:45 PM
My wife and I just purchased an '05 3.0 X3.

-Can anyone lend any insight into good "break-in" practices :confused:

-Also, I noticed that it likes to shift into higher gears VERY quickly, and that you must really pushed down on the pedal to make it downshift. Has anyone else noticed this?

-Has anyone added any performance software to this vehicle? I was told that the engine may not gain measurable HP, but it will gain 'umph'. Can anyone explain this one also? I'm looking for better pedal response, not MAX HP.
