It's now official. The dealership could find no reason for the misfires which caused the limp-mode. So, I'm left with vague assurances that this might not happen again.
The take home reality is...

The diagnosis is that cylinders 1, 2, and 3 misfired. That is, all of cylinder-bank one. The service manager and his team have not been able to figure out why this is happening. They are trying to...

My 2014 35i 'coded'

Driving to work this morning, my X1 went into Limp-Mode with 3500 miles on it. I was driving in DS, gently, as the motor was still cold. I accelerated from a stop and noticed that the RPMs were...

I agree with the above. I owned an A3 and have driven a couple of others. It is not a sporty ride and does not offer much rough road capability. It is also considerably less spacious than the X1. I...

My local BMW service manager told me that while the published numbers of the PPK are lower than Dinan's, the seat of the pants feel is very similar. He expects BMW's numbers are artificially low. So,...

This year I've been noticing that the washer fluids for sale in my area are crap. I saw one typical blue container at a local gas station rated for 30 degrees. The best I've found so far is rated to...

Interesting. Do you have a link to a thread or site on that? How do you override the 6 speed?

Exactly. Their naming system is based on marketing now, not displacement. The 28 is a 2.0L and the 35 is a 3.0L.

BMW's 6 cylinder turbo in the 35 is a 3.0 liter motor rather a 3.5, despite the naming. It's exact displacement is 2979 CC.

To me, having owned both, the emotional appeal of the 35 (for me) wins out. It's the gift that keeps giving in the form of a smile on my face each time I drive. And, as it sits in my garage, I look...

Congrats!! I came from a Mini as well. A Countryman All4. No comparison. The X1 simply blows it away in all respects.

Yeah, winter fuel is the problem. It has a different formulation than summer fuel. I don't know what the differences are.

The 28 is definitely more nimble, agile and light on its feet. The 35 was surprising in its heavy footedness in comparison. All told, I prefer the 35 in spite. Again, either way, they are great...
