It's not CPO. I bought it from Hendrick Hyundai in North Charleston, SC. They shipped it to my door. It arrived Thursday. It still has a lot of warranty left, but CPO would have been nice. The...

Yes. I rotate them. I think one is getting a bit noisy. Nothing unbearable though.

Agreed. Plus, I don't know what the standard is for BMW to replace the brakes for free (included in the service plan), but I'd be willing to bet they wouldn't get there by 50,000 miles. I bought...

Thank you. I just want to be sure that the X1 35i with Msport will accept OEM 17s. Based on the responses, I think they will. I read that the brakes are bigger on the 35i and I didn't want to buy...

I'm keeping the 19s. I really like them. I'd just like to have a winter set. The weather has been great all winter, and the day before my X1 arrives, NE Ohio gets hammered. :thumbdwn:

My current winter set up is my X3 with snow tires. I sold it to a family member though, so I will need to get a winter set up for the X1 when he takes the car.

You can touch it up and get clear paint protection film to prevent future rock chips. I agree with stonex1. My other BMW seemed to get rock chips easier than any other car I have owned.

I know what you mean. I have had every "X3" issue addressed over the last year. I'm probably going to sell it soon. I obsess about keeping it in tip top condition.

Oh no. Please don't blow it. Turner is the best. No offense, but ECS is not what it used to be. I have plenty of experience with both.

Yes, mine is a non-sport. I know Turner Motorsports sells OE type rear springs for non-sport for $200.00 a set. Maybe they have the sport version too. I didn't look.
