Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.

-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas

If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model

-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    BMW X3 owners?

    Anyone own a BMW X3? I've been looking into one for myself, but wanted to see how it compares to the X5. I read one review describing the it as the smaller crossover version of the X5, but also stating it might not be worth the price. Wanted to see if I could get some insight from an actual owner of the vehicle.

    The article I read was pretty intriguing and had great detail on the X3. I'm strongly considering it, but wondering if I should just go all out and get the X5... https://www.autolist.com/bmw-x3/2018-bmw-x3-review#s=a

    I have an 04 x3 6-spd manual 3.0l m54. I've had it for about 2 years now. It's been a good daily. The one thing to be aware of is the window regulators. They all break, eventually. The sunroof also can often have issues, but there is a repair kit available.
    Other than that, nothing major to complain about.

      What generation are you looking at? The original e83, the f25 or the new g01? They all have their issues, I would avoid the 4 cylinder n20 models. Personal I think a e91 or e46 wagon would be a better choice.

        I had an 06 X3 manual. It was a good car. Kind of big and heavy though. I mean, it's an SUV. After a while that became tiring. I agree with Caperix. Get an E46 or E91 Touring instead. A RWD E46 Touring would be easy to toss an S54 into.

          the X3 is literally just a 3 series wagon with mandatory AWD and a taller ride height. They share the same basic interiors, drivetrain, engines, etc. But they sure are a lot uglier - and you can't get them with 3 pedals.

            The taller ride height is great for the wife though, if you are tired of repairing air dams and wheels!

              My wife never had that problem. I'm not sure the ride is that much taller anyway (xdrive is like an inch higher than rwd with sport suspension).

                The e83 X3's came with 3 pedals but ya, F25 and newer is a no. Also OP if your also considering wagon's e91's also came with 3 pedals. E91 was the last 3 series wagon in the states offered with a manual trans.
