    The rest of the X3 panels read between 3 to 8 mils. Only the hood is high, around 13 mils.

    The starter failed some days ago at 120k miles. This happened when we stopped by to visit my sister. Luckily the X3 was parked on a good spot outside her house. We had it towed the next day to my Indy. The towing was interesting. I asked for a flat bed truck, but the driver could not put the X3 on neutral. Then he called another tow truck to do the job. Apparently you need to remove the belly pan to put the X3 in neutral. This was a $710 repair. The tow truck was covered under my AAA membership.
