The power is fine on either one, obviously better on 35i. Just don't expect the e90/e46 handling, can't happen. It is very good for an SUV though.

Yes, some tire places refuse to patch. I usually go to Discount Tire and they had different policies on different brands. Pirellis for instance, they didn't want to patch.

But since you have such...

This probably doesn't help you much, but just FYI with M-sport on X3 you are not getting sport suspension.

The two are just different. Go with X3 if you need a midsize SUV (on the smaller side). X1 is more of a hatchback. Absolutely disagree with some of the handling comments above . X1 handles...

my opinion: 35i has a better engine, 28i has a better transmission. The difference in price you know, so test and decide. M models come with sport suspension, so it is going to be different.

Well, in general there is not much incentive for them to order it for you at invoice. Unless, they are trying to meet some volume target or something.

BTW, not all invoices are created equal....

why do you need to flash it, what's wrong with the default.

Granted I have the 8 speed but it shifts as good as an auto can. Yes, I want a manual, but no flash would fix that. And I'm not saying...

Don't give up so easily. What he is offering you is probably couple hundred above invoice before incentive. You should be able to do better on a 2014 and there is a lot of ground between his number...

What was the dashboard reading just before the 9.5K change. Was it close to 8000 miles?
If so, I don't see a problem, just get the service at 17.5k.

On this car 7k off sticker is probably about 2.5k or so below invoice, before the incentive.
I don't know, seems pretty agressive but you can always try!

In general, any additional...

Yes, it absorbs imperfections pretty well. And while the ride is stiffer compared to Q5, for instance, it is quite softer than our X1
