BMW X3 mileage

Hi, There,
I am new to the forum. I have BMW X3 2.0d SE driven. I want to ask how can I maintain the mileage of my car high. What things should I follow?

In terms of getting high mileage you should clean your oil filter regularly so that the soot and dirt will not affect its working, in order to keep up the good performance of the engine, the spark plugs should be checked, removed and replaced (if necessary) after every thirty thousand miles, take care of your Distributor Cap and Rotators and take your car regularly to a BMW service and repair center for proper maintenance.

Dont completely listen to "Mikemellowz". Your vehicle does not have a distributor cap or "rotators". He just posts here to spam a business not affiliated with this site.

Regular maintenance is important. Oil changes every 5,000-8,000 miles. Air filter every 20,000 miles. Transmission fluid every 60,000-80,000. BMW transmission fluid is not a "lifetime fill" as BMW claims. It needs to be services just like every other fluid in the vehicle.

100% agree. I drive a 2008 x3 and I have to keep up with these things more than regularly. My car gets effected quickly if even one little thing is out of date or tune. especially the oil - went to Firestone to get an oil change, only to find out that they truly never did the oil change until my car began stalling out on the main roads.

Best of luck to ya!
