Interesting, didn't know that. Though I do have iDrive with the HiFi system an I'm still unimpressed!

I don't know how the HK sounds, but the HK system in my 2006 Mini was *much* better to my ears...

I've got the "HiFi" system, which is the base option in the U.S. and an upgrade in many other countries. I'm pretty unimpressed. I find the bass is actually good enough for me, but the mids/highs...

I haven't heard the HK, but I've been underwhelmed by the the HiFi system (the U.S. base system, and the Canadian premium system). Disclaimer: I'm an audiophile. It's good for dance/electronic/techno...

Well I stand corrected, I guess the engineers at BMW are smarter than I am! ;)

I can't imagine driving the car that way, but hey, if it works for you...!

I've had my 2013 X1 28i for about a thousand miles now, so I thought I'd post some of my thoughts.

Things I like:

I have 35% front, 20% back and it's perfectly fine. Never felt there was an issue with night visibility. I would have thought about 20% all around, although that's technically illegal here for the...

I got my X1 with the base (HiFi) system recently, and I'm a little disappointed. I'm an audiophile. I'd describe it as being the minimum acceptable quality, where I can listen to music & not get TOO...

Basically you get the leather, the interior trim options, the 18" wheels & the silver side skirts with the X-line. It's up to you to decide whether or not that's worth it...

I really don't understand why they don't let us choose between summer or A/S tires when we buy the car. I'm definitely putting summers on, meaning that my A/S tires will go to waste, unless I'm lucky...
