BMW X3

The BMW X3 is a stalwart of the luxury mid-size SUV segment, offering customers luxury, refinement, and a choice of petrol and diesel engines.

Now in its third generation, the BMW X3 was one of the original luxury mid-size SUVs – the first version was launched in 2003 – and has built on its success ever since.

Entry-level X3 models are slightly cheaper compared to other German manufacturers, with a base model costing less than $70,000. A top of the line X3 M costs nearly $160,000.

Rivals to the X3 include the Mercedes-Benz GLC, Audi Q5, and Volvo XC60.

How to change the battery in a BMW X3 key?

Changing the battery in certain generation BMW X3 keys at home requires using a soldering gun and some advanced techniques. We do not suggest attempting to change the battery in these models at home. However, newer models are an easy process where you can pop out the battery and replace it with a new unit.

How to change time in a BMW X3?

You can change the time in your BMW X3 by using the buttons directly to the right of the odometer. Press and hold the rightmost button to start the process, and press the left button to cycle through the hours. Press the right button again to start the process for the minutes, using the left to cycle through, finally pressing the right button again to save the time.
