The BMW X3 is a similar vehicle to its cousin, the BMW X5, except the X3 is much smaller and features slightly different exterior styling. Like its cousin, the X3 offers keyless entry as a standard feature.
Programming the keyless entry remote is simple and the process applies to 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 model X3 vehicles. The X3 also less costly than the better equipped BMW X5, but both models are supplied with at least two key fobs as standard equipment.
The X3 is built on the BMW 3 series platform and was designed in Austria. BMW doesn’t refer to the X3 as an SUV; in lieu, it refers to it as an SAV (Sport Activity).
