Uhh, I couldn't disagree more about Top View. LDW is gee whiz, but Top View is an incredible feature. Every car should have this--I just wish it showed the front of the car as well.

Yeah, unfortunately (for me!) I think you're all right. I had test driven one with Valencia and Black and that does seem to be the combination to get. On the plus side, if I don't get the red, I...

Valencia Orange with Coral Red Interior?

I'm just about to order a new X1, and I love the Valencia Orange, but I also love the Coral Red Interior. I'm afraid it might be a bit, well, too much. Am I crazy? Any thoughts? :)

Single payment lease? Credit check? Savings?

Can anyone tell me what the savings over a 3 year lease would be for doing a BMW single payment lease? Also, do you know how this would affect your need to "qualify" credit wise for a lease?

It's just too different of a car. I have driven a Countryman twice now, and while it's a fun car, it's much slower (7.3 vs 6.3[X1 28]/5.3[X1 35]), it's incredibly loud inside at full throttle or on...
