Don't know why people dislike the auto start stop feature. Down here in South West Florida, where the lights take an eternity to change, turning off the engine sure makes a lot of sense. If...

That's like saying you should only drive the speed limit, so BMW won't allow the car to go faster.

If BMW did this on purpose, why did they not do it for the passenger side mirror? That passenger...

Mirror issue for me as well. I have had my mirror replaced in the first month thinking it was faulty, but the new one was the same. Someone goofed on the design.

6. Loud electonic whirring/grinding noise from rear of car whenever I open a car door.

Why anyone would spend $245 to update that lousy excuse for a GPS in the X1 is beyond me. I'm kicking myself for ever paying $1200 for the option. If it gets to the point that the maps change that...

These Motegi 17" rims are supposed to have a high positive offset. The seller is willing to let me put them on the car and try them for a day or two before I buy.

Winter Tires and Rims

I am able to get a good deal on a set of 17" Motegi rims with 225/45R17 winter tires.

Anyone know if these will work on an X1, which calls for 225/50R17 tires. Will the speedometer be off with...

If you are going to keep it longer, at least double up on the service interval. I'm not a proponent of oil changes every 5000km but once a year oil changes are a bit optimistic.

I would assume that there is no option for adjustment. They had my car in for this and decided to replace the mirror. New one is no better.
