I think the X1 will probably turn out to be one of the more reliable models from BMW in awhile. Coming up on 10k miles now and it's the only BMW out of about a dozen I've owned that has required no...

6.5" to 8.8" CID

I think the Nav system is horrible...no way I'd want to see even more of it [emoji51]. But I'm still intrigued by the mod.

Thoughts on buying 2011 e91 with 70k miles

Thoughts on buying 2011 e91 with 70k miles

E9x reliability has improved (predictably) as the model years have advanced. Considering the scarcity of e91s available, if you like the car I'd look past the mileage concerns if it has a CPO...
