Yup, I've start using that cupholder too.
Arm rest has once or twice slid out when I didn't want it to. Usually from pushing
too hard with the elbow, so I try to be careful.
But I can see this...

I find this intriguing.
To me, the X1 and juke are "perhaps" in the same segment, but are marketed completely different.
The juke's exterior/interior seems designed for that younger, bold...

I agree.

At the time I was buying, I took hard looks at Mazda, Nissan and Mitsubishi.
I browsed around Lexus and Acura, but their segment was a little to big at the time,
and too pricey.

Tough question to answer.
The E84 X1 has only been in existence since 2009-2010.
Brought to Canada in early 2011 (I think) and brought to the US in late 2012. (2013 model)
So, most folks won't...

I've heard pros and cons of each.

Did your 4 year free maintenance just run out?

Personally, I would just stick with OEM air filters. With a Canadian climate, you want
clean air over performance so stick with OEM.

Does your AC panel light up when the car starts?
It should remember what you had when you turned the car off.

Hold down the "lower" fan button until the system turns off.
