I haven't gotten my X1 yet but the highway government results clearly appear too high in relation to the 328i and the highway fuel economy being so close to the sDrive version is also a bit strange. ...

I would expect the X1 and other E series models to continue to get iDrive updates but they may be more minor in scope and simply not have some of the functionality of the new Nav system. It looks...

If you are planning to do European delivery and would have gotten power seats and don't really care about the utility of the X1, the 328i in a lease is a compelling choice since it has a higher...

Over the next year, I would expect the X1 to have a real good chance to outsell the X3 but it wouldn't be by a ton since the X3 is selling very well and dealers will want to push that vehicle that...

I am at fault for overlooking paddle shifters while ordering my base X1 but not getting them is the only decision I clearly regret on the car I ordered with iDrive and not much else. Chances are I...

I'm not sure they really are. The X1 is priced pretty aggressively for a BMW. Given its capacity, its actually priced cheaper then a 1 series. And the Infiniti G37 sedan and EX35 SUV are priced...

Excellent review. I feel like all cars are a compromise and I recently ordered the X1 fully knowing it won't drive as well as a 1 series or even as well as the upcoming 3 series wagon.

There are...

I went with the Alpine White since I like the color and admittedly I'm somewhat frugal/cheap and didn't want to pay more for a metallic color. I went with the black interior since I thought beige...

If the new wagon was already out in the US, I would favor the X1 simply because it is a better bang for the buck vehicle and already good enough for my needs. I suspect the real difference in price...

I'm assuming the latest version of the xDrive 25i is very similar to the xDrive 28i in terms of power and efficiency. And it may not so some of my comments may not be applicable.

If I had never...

If you buy from tirerack or even a good deal...

Reportedly BMW numbers were preliminary and according to the EPA, the xDrive 28i gets 33 mpg highway and 22 mpg city. I suspect BMW will soon update their website since there were several news...

For people who live in high sales tax states and who only pay sales tax on the car depreciation, leasing a BMW probably makes a lot of financial sense for many individuals. From my ballpark...

I am not sure if I will buy a new 328i or the 2012 Mercedes c350.
