Ok, now, a head gasket problem is not entirely common on these
have you owned the X3 since new?
Meaning CPO warranty? And did you have regular servicing done by BMW?
Ok, I've got to say that head gasket problems are extremely uncommon on these. What were the symptoms leading up to this?
Ok, good information. When it started to overheat, how much further did you drive?
Ok, with the rarity of head gasket problems on these, I would first suggest a second opinion from an independent Foreign/Euro repair shop
Let me take a look
Meaning goodwill warranty?
this is why I was asking ownership history
because they do have that possiblity
but if not, these guys have an excellent reputation
But they didn't ultimately offer this with the current problem?
Actually, I don't know how the billing works. I just work on answering the tough stuff :-)
This shop is near Mirimar
glad to help, and wish you luck with this. Hopefully, BMW steps up
