Just placed my dealer order for a new X1 xDrive 28i!!!

Ordered with the following:

Space Grey
Red Brown Leather
Sport pkg
Navi pkg
Premium pkg
Comfort pkg
BMW apps
Lighting pkg
park distance control

Only comes in Canada with the new 8 speed and the new turbo 4 motor. Delivery is scheduled for May 30th.

Base price is said to be $38,500 but no official dealer price has been released or for the options. Dealer and I figure should be around $50,000 to $52,000 with this list of basically every option available except for Harman Kardon sound and comfort access.

I will post the standard equip for canada and the option codes and contents shortly.

I guess that US will get NO manual as well...
So the only choice left is Subaru?

If that is so, I'm dismayed and back to comparing an ED 3 series against a Countryman.

That is very exciting!
I'm surprised you didn't order the comfort access. Do you mind if I ask why?
I find that to be a very handy feature, and it shouldn't be more than $750.

I'm actually surprised they are still making it an option since a lot of other manufacturers have it standard.

Well, I kind of had to draw the line somewhere with the options :dunno: !!!

Seriously though, I just kind of like the ritual of putting a key (or at least a fob) in a slot. It also mitigates charging issues. Also my car parks about 5 feet from my front door, so it has a chance of opening for anyone unless I take the keys upstairs to the back of the house.

I skipped the harman kardon as the base system already has 6 speakers plus two subs, that is good enough for me.

I would guess that to be the case as well. I think they are going for a big MPG figure. With 8 speeds , 8th is massively overdriven and provides 37-38mpg on the highway. They have also kept 1st and second pretty tight to improve low end acceleration. The specs on the transmission are impressive, check out the video at this link

http://www.zf.com/corporate/en/products/innovations/8hp_automatic_transmissions/8hp_automatic_transmission.html

Good details and blown out cutaway views on the technology, it shifts gears in 200 milliseconds and can shift directly from 8th to 2nd at that speed. It should work well behind the high torque turbo motor in this car.

I can't believe why at least Canada won't get a diesel. This 4 cylinder is a great motor, but BMW rates it at 29 mpg average in the X1, that's a crappy 3 mpg better then my X5d average. The 23d X1 is up there around 45 mpg.

Looking at the trim options at bmwuk, you need to get the M sport if available, it looks so much better then the standard edition.

Prices sure are higher in Canada, with about the same options you have on your X1 order, my 2011 X5d was only 54k after cash back from BMW.

03-08-2011, 09:40 AM
Don't get me started on our pricing versus the US price!!!!!

While there usually are a FEW small differences in our favour with regard to standard equipment...... we are usually many thousands more expensive. In fact based on our MSRP in Canada at 38,500, the car will likely be $34,000ish and your options are usually cheaper as well......

The M-package does look nice, however it is not available in Canada as yet and i will say the standard body trim suits the car in a more sport utility way versus the sports carish look of the M package.

Having said that I did just add a BMW Individual special order of Anthracite headliner to the car:)

I would order the diesel if it were available, it is a great motor! I suspect it will come, Diesels are much more popular here than in the US in general and we seem to be getting more of them from all the manufacturers.

I live in Australia and took delivery of my X1 23d yesterday. Awesome vehicle. The twin turbo is amazing and the feel and drive of the car is great. This is for my wife to drive. Options included are nav, panorama roof, music connect, etc.

Wow the orange reflector looks terrible on the headlight!

BMW CA did a better job with the option packaging this time around. Mine came out to $43.250. Added rear PDC, Light and Sport packages. Tiefseeblau and Black leatherette with the diamond black trim. I can live without the moonroof.

Unfortunately, BMW needs to fix some glitches on its webseite. What's wrong with the following?

The four-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo gasoline engine in the BMW X1 xDrive28i.

The BMW X1 xDrive28i needs just 6.7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h. Its efficient performance and unique driving dynamics set new standards time and again. Only an in-line six-cylinder engine, paired with perfect mass balancing and comfortable engine smoothness, offers such an ideal balance between weight and power. Composed of an aluminum-magnesium alloy, the power train delivers 241hp and 258 lb-ft of unmitigated sportiness. It is simply the best engine in its class.

Over in Germany, it is interesting that all the models are offered with a 6MT now. The old 6-cyl and 23d used to be AT only. The new 28i with the turbo-four has the 8AT.

Update: It has landed in Halifax today and will be shipped out shortly. Should be at the dealer for pickup the second week of May!

I also drove the demo unit at the dealer. Really liked it, punchy power plant, with lots of torque, transmission is brilliant for an automatic and upshifts and downshift very quickly. Interior was okay,,,,, but it was not loaded with leather etc. so hard to give a final judgement. I am 6'4" and had tons of room in the drivers seat with great headroom and a really good driving position. Not huge space behind my seat, but unless i am driving a 7 series, there never is....

Overall I really liked the size, think tall 3 series wagon. This translates better than comparing it to the old or new X3. Old X3 is similar in length but much taller. New X3 is huge in my opinion, bigger than it needs to be, but all the BMW's seem to get bigger and bigger each generation. Compare an e30 to an e90 3 series and you will get what I mean.

Lots of pictures to come after delivery!!

Figured out the problem... it is the snap in adaptor:thumbdwn: BMW in their wisdom makes THREE :dunno:different adaptors for the Iphone 3G/S. You need (I think) part number 84212218391 to make BMW apps and music etc. work. I got part number 84212151038 which only charges and links to the external antenna for reception.

Going to talk to my guy at the dealer tomorrow and see about a swap.:thumbup:

I'm getting the BMW apps too and would like to know whether the adapter is necessary, or could I just use Bluetooth? I really hope so as then I can wait for iPhone 5. Otherwise I'll need to get an iPhone 4 which will be obsolete-ish in 5 months. sigh.

You need the snap in adaptor to utilize the console interface. Without it you will not be able to utilize bmw apps. Via the front console USB and a standard ipod cable you can see all your music, display cover art etc and you can use the phone function via bluetooth without plugging anything in at all.

But, if you want the apps or to charge in the centre console with no visible wires you need the snap in adaptor.

Makes sense, I think they only build one console, so the cupholder in RHD's would be in the drivers knee.

You definitely get it as part of the car here in Canada.

I have also ordered in the correct Snap in Adaptor. 7-10 days delivery. It seems there are NONE!!! in Canada, so it is being brought in from Germany.

You would think that with BMW apps launching in almost all cars for April builds on, that BMW Canada might have ordered a few in for customers :dunno:

The bad news for you my friend is that it seems BMWUSA has just announced that they will NOT be bringing in any X1's until at least Fall 2012!! That is pushed back a year from the earlier announcement of fall this year.

Too bad, as it is a sweet ride!!

The X3 is selling really well, and no offence intended,:angel: my american friends seem to follow the bigger is better theory......

On a side note, I registered with BMW assist yesterday (Love the button on the headliner!!) and I was the first X1 that had been set up on their system! In fact the service rep had to manually enter the model info as it did not display automatically which he thought was strange as normally that comes straight up on the screen.:eeps:

Thanks. That's about what I figured. 3 days at VPC, 3 days by rail to Concord and then trucking down to dealer and PDI. Now all I have to do is find out the ship. I have the VIN, so it's just checking the Wallenius site that will tell me that.

I picked up my (Canadian) 2012 X1 xDrive28i on May 28. It was one of the first to hit Saskatchewan. Black inside and out with the red-brown all leather seats. All options except sport package and XM radio. I love the car! It handles great. I had been looking at Infiniti EX/FX, but like this a lot better. All of the features are actually useful and seem to work very well. The voice control in this vehicle is actually useful, and quite amazing. It's a complete waste in any other vehicle I've driven. However, I'm a bit baffled over the whole BMW Apps / snap-in adapter saga. Mine was supposed to have BMW Apps, but apparently does not. My dealer said it did, then changed their story to say that none of the X1's in Canada will have it. Meanwhile, several of you are reporting on here that you do have it. DOH! I can use my iPhone 4 via bluetooth or the front console USB port with no problems, and have full phone and music access. I have a weird bracket type thing in my armrest that looks like something would snap into it, but there are no wires or connections in there. Just the USB port in the front console and the one in the glove box. Anybody know if this (BMW Apps, snap-in adapter, etc.) can all be added after market??
