At highway cruising speed or coasting, what happens if you take your hands off the wheel?
Note: The road must be flat and level, as ruts can pull you either way.

Great choice!

But can you fit 2 sets of golf clubs in the 235i?

What about another vehicle you could test with?
Of course, you would need time to see if the GPS exhausts its internal

+1

I can see it working better in larger city centers too with large intersections
and longer red light wait time.

I don't think the 2012 model came with EcoPro mode or Auto Stop Start.
I believe those features were introduced in the LCI for MY2013 in North America.

Never had a reaction like that.
Does your dealer not sell a lot of X1's?
Perhaps they sell more expensive BMW's and the X1's sit around, thus they are
commonly used for loaners.

Mine was similar.
1 hour plane trip, 45 minute sky train, and then a 30 minute walk (pulling a suitcase) to the dealership.

No, just a few trim differences.

Typical BMW 4 years free maintenance, you pay for gas and rubber.

You'll have to go to the dealer.

BMW has services for this, I think the first year is free....

Very nice!!!!

Did the OEM tires go bald, or did you just want new rubber?
Are the spacers required for your new 235 width?

Tough break!

Looks like all you need to replace is the silver trim piece, which should be a simple DIY.
I'm guessing a 2014 trim piece would fit, but the 2015 trim is a little fancier IIRC.
