2006 BMW X3 2.5i 3.0i Specs Maintenance and Owners Manual (E-book)
This maintenance and owners manual apply for 2006 BMW X3 2.5i and 3.0i series. The manual is divided into sections as follows: Using this Owners Manual, At a Glance (cockpit), Controls (including lamps, air conditioner system, and interior accessories), Driving Tips (things to remember when driving), Mobility (covers maintenance and replacing components such as wiper blades, lamps and bulbs, wheels, vehicle battery and fuses), and Reference (technical data and specification).
The BMW maintenance system takes the driving conditions of the vehicle into account when determining service intervals:
From the maintenance standpoint, 62,000 miles/100,000 km accumulated in short-distance urban driving are not the equivalent of the same distance covered at moderate speeds in long-distance highway travel. The BMW maintenance system is divided into engine oil service and Inspections I and II. Determining the maintenance intervals according to the actual loads on the vehicle covers practically every kind of operating situation. However, even those who drive only short distances, significantly less than 6,200 miles/ 10,000 km annually, should have the engine oil changed at least every 2 years since oil deteriorates over time, regardless of use.
