Because flushing breaks loose metal particles that will not actually be removed from the transmission and are now floating throughout the transmission where they cause damage.

Additionally, flushing can cause seals to start leaking.

The X1 with winter tires is very formidable in snow conditions. No problem even on deep snow.

Change all the drivetrain fluid.
Also don't use ASS and keep up with oil changes.
Just got the nonRF snows on today, automatically feeling more confident on snow covered dirt roads. Man, I think I fucking love this car.

Tried using the ASS for 5 minutes while in stop and go traffic. That'll never be used again. Ever. Frankly I can't even see it's theoretical useful application.

Oil changes I am pretty solid about keeping up with (synth every 4-5k). Any advice on other fluid changes? Drivetrain, transmission, seems like we got thoughts on both in this thread. Frequency? Just got this car from a good BMW dealer. 34k miles. 3rd owner: 1st was a lease from the same dealer, 2nd was a CPO from the same dealer. My guess is they didn't do any new fluids for me. So how soon do I need to be thinking about changing other fluids?

Speaking of oil, I have heard things from other BMW owners about problems with burning of oil. They made it seem like a bit of a trait. Anyone experience any oil burning? Either as a one off or more endemic. I bring this up now because I parked my car to get the tires done today and sniffed a hint of burning oil. My guess was it was a car next to me. But I was aware.

Is that the reset screen where I can reset the display stat which seems to generate a MPG avg from the entirety of the cars miles? I looked at that and saw a specific trip odometer stat screen where you can pull stats just from a given commute. Kind of different things; what I originally asked about (resetting the lifetime average) and being able to pull stats from just one drive. But totally makes sense that you can toggle between the two on the computer screen.

Reset the stat machine for the trip computer. On my 20 mile each way twisty 2 lane road commute today:

Direction 1: mostly downhill, 50mph avg, 50% driving hard 50% stuck behind slow drivers, 34mpg.

Direction 2: mostly uphill, 47mph avg, 15% driving hard 85% stuck behind slow drivers, 25mpg.

Overall, very encouraging and instills confidence that I can farm 27-28mpg out of this car for the vast majority of my driving.

I hope he did cause a 24mpg average should be easy without having to push tire pressure to the limits.
