    4x4 question

    120 hp base model X3 with stage 2 tune.

    Climbing long steep hill this past weekend. Put in sport mode and 4x4 before starting the climb. about half way up the hill there was a bump/jump. When I got to the other side of the bump my back tires were spinning hard but my front wasn't doing anything noticeable, ending in us stuck on big hill. When I got down the hill my buddies said I wasn't in 4 wheel drive as they saw no front tires spinning. I checked and could hear 4 wheel drive being activated. I found some mud and the 4 wheel drive seemed to be working fine. Is there something I am missing about how this works? I have done some searching but found nothing.

    Did you notice if the 4X4 symbol appeared on the dash to the left of the gear indicator symbol? Maybe you hit the gas before it shifted into 4X4. It won't engage if there is a difference in speed between the front and rear wheels.

    Yup, I’m sure everyone has done something slightly different, but stop or cruise slow and engage 4x4. Then keep going.
