Just came back from a short errand at dusk. With 31 K miles on my X3, I now started having intermitant headlight problems. While behind another car trying to cross an intersection, the lights went on and off twice before staying on all the way home. In my drive way, I tried to replicate what had previously happened. Sure enough, while stopping to turn in and then starting into the driveway, the headlights went out......and stayed out all the way into the garage. The only thing working were the dash lighting and parking lights. After unloading the bags, I started the car again and the headlights worked.
This is not just disturbing....it's down right serious and dangerous. The X3 is going in first thing in the morning and I expect an immediate fix. Why do I get the sinking feeling that they won't be able to address the problem until it happens at the dealership. That being the case, perhaps they can keep the car and let the service manager drive the car with his family in it at night for a week.
Of the countless cars of all varieties I have owned over 44 years, the X3 has the dubious honor of being the first vehicle with intermitant headlight failure.

Hat's off to the local BMW boys.....they did extensive diognostics and in the end, found a bad bracket under the hood that probably dates back to the
build date. Problem solved. They replicated my problem! Nice job.
I know how that goes...I rarely throw a leg over my bike these days. I spend all my spare time behind the wheel of my Bimmer! That Bullit is a helluva' machine though, they climb like a cross country bike, and descend like a banshee! In this case, it's the only time I'd ever say that I love 7" in the rear.

there were two high mountains between Jizhou in the south and Heyang in the north. One was called Taihang Mountain and the other Wangwu Mountain. Both of the mountains were very high. Just to the north of the mountains lived an old man called Yu Gong who was nearly 90 years old. With the two high mountains just in front of his house If you need sell cheap wow gold,you can buy wow power leveling on the website: buy wow gold, cheap WoW Power Leveling, sale wow Gold, 1-80 lvl wow power leveling, wotlk gold. his family and he had to walk a long way around the mountains whenever they had something to do on the other side of the mountains. One day, Yu Gong called all his family together to talk about how to move the two mountains to other places. His wife said, "An old man like you cannot even move a small hill, not to mention the two high mountains. Even if you can, where can you throw so much earth and stone?" "the Bohai Sea is big enough to contain all the earth and stone," Yu Gong said.So it was decided. His children started to dig the mountains, led by the old man Yu Gong. A man named Zhi Sou saw them working and tried to stop them, saying, "You are so silly! You're so old and weak that you can't even take away the grass and trees. How can you move the high mountains?" "You're wrong," Yu Gong said with a sigh. "Look, my sons can continue my work after my death. When my sons die, my grandchildren will continue. So generations after generations, there's no end. But the mountains can't grow higher. Do you still say I can’t move them away?" Later the Heaven God, upon learning of Yu Gong’s story, was GREatly moved. He then ordered another god to come down and take the two high mountains away. the story tells us that so long
